Trombone and Euphonium Shank Options

Our most popular standard Wedge trombone models currently available for alto, tenor and bass trombone are shown in the comparison chart below. We offer mouthpieces with the usual Small shank and / or Large shank, depending on the mouthpiece size.

To browse our complete line of brass and plastic models, visit our secure and convenient Online Store.

Remington shank mouthpieces are available for tenor sizes 6.5AL, 5G, 5GS, 4G, and 3G. The Remington shank is a large shank with slightly slower Brown and Sharp taper compared to the regular Morse taper. It is used in certain (mostly vintage) tenor and bass trombones with a Remington receiver. Examples of these horns include Elkhart Conn 8H, 88H, 60H, 62H, 70H-73H, and others. The modern 88H accepts a regular Morse taper mouthpiece. A Morse taper mouthpiece will not seat properly in a Remington receiver, and notes will not slot or speak as well as they would with a Remington shank mouthpiece. A Remington shank will not insert far enough into a regular receiver, and will wobble because the tip is larger than a regular large shank mouthpiece.

Medium European shanks for available for trombone sizes 6.5AL, 5G, 4G, and 3G and for all euphonium sizes.

Some bass trombones, for example some vintage King models, have an extra deep receiver. If your mouthpiece inserts more than 1.25 inches (31 mm) into your leadpipe be sure to select the BT Deep Receiver option when ordering bass trombone mouthpieces. We also offer brass and Delrin trombone screw rims compatible with Doug Elliott ST, LT, XT, SB, and LB cups.

Dear Dr. Dave,

After having my Wedge for just a few days (only since Monday), I can confidently say this is without a doubt, the best mouthpiece I’ve ever had. There were immediate differences in my playing; scooping into pitches just didn’t happen anymore, my tone was rounder, my range was better, and my endurance was considerably better than with my previous piece. My professor told me just a day after receiving the mouthpiece that he could already tell the difference between my tonality using my other piece and the Wedge, and that he loved the change. Thank you so much for taking the time to find (and make!) the mouthpiece that was perfect for me! This one’s a keeper!

“Since I discovered Wedge mouthpieces I have played them exclusively. I feel they give me superior flexibility of expression, a clear tone, added endurance, and comfort over conventional rims. The Wedge gives a 3 dimensional character and depth to the tone compared to 2-D sound of a conventional mouthpiece. I use Wedge mouthpieces for tenor, alto, and bass trombone, euphonium, and bass trumpet.” –David Ritt,  Seattle Symphony and Seattle Opera Orchestra
