I have enjoyed playing, and am thriving as a performer with my Wedge mouthpieces! As a solo and chamber musician as well a conductor, the Wedge mouthpiece allows me to remain "in good lip" with efficient use of valuable practice time. Since trying my first mouthpiece, I have experienced a vibrant, resonant, and singing tone quality with minimal effort and maximal efficiency. Additionally, my flexibility, articulation, and technique have equally benefited from the use of Wedge Mouthpieces on all of my trumpets.
I have recently acquired a Wedge mouthpiece with a 5% Angled Rim. As a downstream player with an overbite, the angled rim allows me to relax the jaw and focus my energy on other aspects of embouchure and articulation. Dave Harrison is revolutionising mouthpiece design! Bravo!!!
