We offer a selection of cornet mouthpieces with rims matching the the most popular trumpet models. The mouthpieces usually have a medium deep cornet cup, similar to a Wick B cup.  The W3 and W4 mouthpieces have deeper cups based on the original Wick 3 and Wick 4 mouthpieces.

Cornet Mouthpieces can be ordered through the online store.

American Style Cornet Tops and Backbores

  • American style cornet tops are made from the same blank as our trumpet tops.
  • Cup depth is medium deep, similar to a Wick B cornet cup depth.
  • Can be used with regular length Wedge or Warburton cornet backbores.

Cornet Backbore Sizes

  • We offer regular cornet backbores in Small, Medium, Medium Large, and Large sizes with #27 and #25 throats. They are used with our regular cornet tops and also for piccolo trumpet tops.
  • Small backbores are most suitable for Dixieland jazz or where maximum compression is desired.
  • Medium and Medium Large backbores are most suitable for cornet and piccolo trumpet when intermediate compression and breadth of sound are required. The ML size with a 25 throat is an excellent choice paired with a 25 throat cornet top.
  • Large cornet backbores produce an open blow and broad sound, but less upper register support. They are a good choice for players who want very broad sound but who do  not want the more open feel of a British cornet style mouthpiece.

Addition Special Features

Wedge Angled Rim for Overbite and Underbite

Wedge trumpet, cornet, and flugelhorn mouthpieces can also be ordered with an optional angled rim for players who’s teeth force them to hold the horn at an undesirable angle. The combination of the angled rim and curved shape of the Wedge design combine to correct the horn angle and provide greatly improved comfort.

It also decreases the TMJ discomfort often associated with trying to thrust the jaw forward to compensate for an overbite.

  • Five degree or ten degree tilt, in addition to the patented Wedge rim design.
  • Mouthpiece can be rotated in the horn by 180 degrees to compensate for an underbite or overbite.
  • Modified cup redirects airflow smoothly into throat.
  • Shape of throat remains round, unlike what can happen when bending a backbore.
  • Email to discuss your needs for an angled rim.

Testimonial

“If I had a choice of playing a gig on my Wedge mouthpiece and a mediocre trumpet, or a great trumpet with any other mouthpiece, it would be a no-brainer. The Wedge/mediocre trumpet combination. This design is everything I’ve been looking for in a mouthpiece for years.” –Arthur Grudko
