Flex Mouthpiece Cutaway showing internal components



Any Series can be used in
virtually any musical situation.

The mouthpiece components shown to the left
all work together to define our different
Flex Mouthpiece Series.

Any series can (and has) been used in virtually any musical situation. Proper mouthpiece design takes into account Mother Nature's harmonic series
and how the resonances behave in the
trumpet air column.bbcutaway
When designed properly, a mouthpiece works in cooperation with the trumpet air column and the player to provide a full resonant sound in conjunction with great intonation and ease of play.


If you are unsure of which series to select, we recommend you start with our Vs (Speed of Sound) series as it has proven to be the most successful for a broad range of players and musical settings.

If it doesn't quite fit your needs, contact us and we will help you “dial in” your set-up.

Vs (Speed of Sound) series
(Functions as a free blowing, resonant mouthpiece)

J6 series
(Functions like the Vs series with a "thicker" core to the sound)
In other words, more mid and low frequencies in the sound)
