The Original Wedge Two Part Mouthpiece Line
Better Sound, Range, Endurance, Flexibility and Comfort - Guaranteed.
Mastery of the trumpet or cornet places unique physical demands on the player. We not only play the instrument, we are a part of the instrument. This means that the successful brass player must possess more than just musical talent. The degree of facial muscle strength and stamina required in brass playing makes it a type of unique "athletic" endeavor. Producing sound by vibrating one of the most sensitive and delicate parts of our anatomy is not only challenging, it is sometimes punishing. The result can be fatigue, stiffness or swelling that limits our capacity for musical expression.
We Offer a Solution
The Wedge mouthpiece has been described by players using it as the most significant innovation in brass design in decades. It was developed by combining an understanding of human anatomy and physiology with 40 years of experience as a trumpet player. The result is a unique oval, curved rim shape that is far more comfortable and efficient than a traditional round and flat rim.
Players using a Wedge mouthpiece can expect:
- A fuller sound more even response in all registers
- Greater comfort
- Improved flexibility
- More endurance
- Enhanced range
- Better articulation
- Less swelling

Backbores are the other half of the part system. Trumpet backbores can be one piece or two piece. One piece backbores come in sizes S, M, and ML and a a great option when players do not want the option of gap adjustment or the potential to use a short shank for C trumpet.
Cornet backbores are one piece and can be used with Wedge tops for cornet or piccolo trumpet. They are available in silver or gold plated brass.
Wedge backbores have the same threads as Warburton, Kanstul, and Picket Brass backbores.
