    Please note. Shipping is $5 flat rate to anywhere in continental US. If you purchase more than one mouthpiece, I will ship multiple mouthp[ieces in a single box to you, still just $5 for the package.

    Hi Doug,

    These mouthpieces look great! Do you know what the difference, if any, is between a Yamaha 53HL and your Hokozano Special?

    Thanks,

    Robert Pendergast, DM

    I checked with Adam Frey. He says they are pretty much the same thing.

    We all should take a lesson from Doug. This is a great ad with excellent descriptions and pictures (and prices).

    Kudos to you Doug, and good luck with the sale.

    Doug, please give me your opinion on the DC3 vs a SM4.

    If it has a scooch more backpressure than the Mead, I'd like to get it.

  6. Dennis, cannot compare with the SM4 since I have never played one for any length of time, however, keep in mind that Dave switched from playing the Wick 4AL to the DC3. I have played the 4AL for over 30 years. If anything, the DC3 plays a bit "smaller" than the 4AL with a sharper rim and much heavier mass in the mouthpiece. Backpressure feels about the same as the 4AL. Also note that the DC3 is equivalent to the 4 series Wick while the DC2 is equivalent to the 3 series Wick.

  8. Are you a Willson 2900 player using a BB1 mouthpiece?

    I just wanted to bump this thread with a a bit of suggestion.

    If you play a Willson 2900 using the DEG BB1 euro-shank mouthpiece, you might be interested in the matching pair of BB1's I have for sale. The large shank and tenor shank BB1's would give you a full set so that if you double (to tenor trombone or baritone for instance) you would still have essentially the same mouthpiece in all shank sizes.

    These are VERY nice gold trimmed mouthpieces. If you take the pair, you can save money on shipping anhd I might be willing to negotiate a small discount for making my job easier!

  9. Do you play a Yamaha 321? Check my mouthpieces!

    If you play a Yamaha 321 and are using the Yamaha 48 mouthpiece that came with it, you may be interested in the tenor shank mouthpieces I have for sale above.

    All of these small shank mouthpieces (except the Bach 6 1/2 AL) would help you get a bigger, more robust sound compared with the stock mouthpiece. These include the DEG BB1TB (tenor shank), Schilke 51D, Wick SM4B and Wick 4BS. All of these mouthpieces are in fantastic near-new condition and are either all gold plated (51D) or Silver with gold rim and cup (BB1TB, SM4B, and 4BS).

    Get a new mouthpiece with BLING factor and better sound at the same time!
