    Mouthpiece choice is dependent on personal choice as well as intended use. For example the classic 51D is best for a concert band as opposed to a brass band. It's too focused for brass band use. Wick...

    First, what horn do you use? I'd think you'd want a large horn like a Miraphone 5050 or Besson Prestige if you are using 3 size mouthpieces but mouthpiece choice is very personal. Regarding the 51D...

    Excellent point. I think talent and tone concept is far more important than the horn itself. I'm sure the 2950 suits Gail well but she and others at her level can get great sound out of any...

    When I became a brass band player I switched from a 51D on my 2900 to various Wick mouthpieces. They are far better suited to the brass band blend but as Doug points out, mouthpieces are very...

    Hi Mike.

    The original setup I purchased was too bright. Doug then sent me the 102 rim with both I and J cups, both with short receivers. The I cup seems to be the best compromise. Nice sound and...

    The 51D is a great mouthpiece for high school players. If they have a lot of talent they want to consider a mouthpiece with a larger bore. For example the Denis Wick 4 or 4AL. The BB1 mouthpiece...

    Good point. Maybe Shires has targeted the 2900 which has had a long history in the service bands and with students of Dr. Bowman. Itís iconic in the concert band world. But as we know it has...

    Iím sure there are very subtle differences in finishes but Iíd bet that production differences between identically specified horns make that difference hard to evaluate.

    I should have checked the website before asking as the answer is there. Returns are okay within 30 days. There is a $10.00 fee for mouthpieces that pays to refurbish them to new condition.
