Choosing a Size

1. Find your current mouthpiece in the table below.

2. The correct rim size appears in the same row in the blue column on the left. 

3. The correct cup depth appears in the same column in the grey area above your mouthpiece. 

Want a darker sound?

  • Choose one cup depth deeper, and consider trying one rim size smaller to offset the effect of the deeper cup.
  • Many players can move down one size with the Wedge and not have problems with swelling, sound quality or flexibility. 
 

Want a brighter sound?

  • Choose a cup one step shallower. 
  •  

EXAMPLE: You play a Bach 3C.

  1. Your rim size from the blue column to the left of B3C in the cart is 66.
  2. Your cup depth from the grey area above the Bach 3C in the chart is M.
  3. Your Wedge size is  therfore 66M.
  4. If you want a darker sound you should choose a 66MD or down size to a 65MD for added efficiency.

Once you have found your size you can see detailed specifications in our online store at the following links:

One and Two Piece Options

Wedge trumpet mouthpieces are available as one-piece mouthpiecs or as separate tops that can be used with Wedge, Warburton, Pickett Brass, or similar backbores. One piece mouthpieces are an excellent choice for most players. The modular system allows the use of different combinations of backbore sizes, weights, and lenghts in order to fine tune your 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 whos 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.

Wedge Cornet Mouthpieces

We also 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.

One piece British Cornet style

Cornet mouthpiece tops are available as Regular or British cornet styles.

British Cornet Style Mouthpieces

  • One and two piece models

Testimonials

"The Wedge, for all it's unconventional rim characteristics, felt comfortable right from the get-go. It seems to have a 'grip' that I have not found in other mouthpieces, and along with that seems to come an added degree of flexibility. It feels good and I love the sound... full at the bottom and crisp at the top. There's always something new under the sun!"
