Yamaha Shew Lead Rim – Inner Diameter = .640″ (16.26 mm)
Our YSL VR Flex trumpet mouthpiece is great if you're coming from a Yamaha Shew Lead. It's VR style cup and overall balance between the cup, throat, bore, and backbore give it an amazing, resonant sound for very little effort.

Players coming from a Yamaha Shew lead or equivalent report our Flex YSL VR is 10-30% easier to play with better intonation and a more resonant sound.
This is due to our advanced acoustic design and Flex Alloy.

Series Design (Mouthpiece balance)

By developing mouthpieces as complete systems, or series, we have been able to combine the best internal shapes and sizes to maximize the performance of each mouthpiece. In this manner you are assured of a mouthpiece that has been balanced acoustically for maximum sound and ease of play.



Flex Alloy

A proprietary brass alloy and treatment. It is extremely resonant and transfers energy very efficiently thus adding to ease of play.

YSL VR Vs Series

Speed of Sound Series which is good for Lead Trumpet, Amplified Music, and Pit Work.

YSL VR J6 Series

J6 Series which is good for Lead Trumpet, Amplified Music, and Pit Work. It has more "core" to the sound than the Vs. Some say it requires a little bit more air.

YSL VR M4G Series

Our M4G Series is the latest development in small volume cup acoustic design. It provides a huge resonant sound with an extremely easy upper register.

YSL VR T2 Series

The T2 is a variation of the Vs Series. It has either a #30 or #29 bore. This affects the very top of the backbore nearest the cup. It may allow you to use less air.

    So now I have played for four days in a row with my new “YSL Vr flex mouthpiece” and I felt so comfortable at once so I played three concerts whith it, which is not really what I use to do when I change to a new mpc. I come from a Yamaha Shew lead so the rim was there at once.
    I feel with so few days it’s remarkable how I find my endurance, projection and tone quality (especially in the middle range) feels better. In the high range it felt secure with great projection and a big sound.
    I just have to say congratulations to your development of a great mouthpiece and I am so glad that I took the chance to try it out.
    THANKS Kasper!!!!!!

    I have played a Yamaha Shew for as long as I can remember. Anytime I tried a new mp, I always went back to my Shew. The YSL VR felt so good, I used it to record my lead parts with the Dennis Noday/Lee Harris CD 2 days after I got it and I haven’t looked back since. The high register is open and powerful, but the sound is full and even in all the registers. I really don’t like to sacrifice the lower half of the notes on a lead mouthpiece. It feels like less work, and the slots are a bit tighter and that helps with accuracy. I use the 4.5 flex and it gets the gap in just the right spot. If I switch horns, I don’t have to worry where the gap is with the 3 flex couplers it came with. Well done!
