    Prototype Euphonium MyPiece Mouthpieces

    Hello everyone,

    I recently discovered an innovative new company which is called MyPiece Mouthpieces and I sent a set of scans across of my lips which resulted in me being sent four prototype Euphonium MyPiece Mouthpieces.

    I wanted to share with you a video clip which features me testing a series of prototype Euphonium mouthpieces which have been created for me to test by MyPiece Mouthpieces.

    You can view the video clip at the attached link - https://youtu.be/-Jr1H5rwGsU?si=10j4u86LIkQ4jl9v.

    Let me know if you have any questions in regards to these innovative new prototype Euphonium MyPiece Mouthpieces.

    Best Wishes,

    Micah Dominic Parsons

    Very interesting -- though I'm a bit skeptical about the benefits of such a mouthpiece. Time will tell, I suppose. I love the pocket knife in the picture on their website of the array of mouthpieces, but the presence of the oscillating hand sander seems a bit spooky.

        Yeah, I'm interested in hearing what you think. I'm still trying to imagine how that oscillating sander could possibly be involved in mouthpiece production.

          Yeah, I saw the picture you are talking about. Maybe with the resin prototype that they create, the sander might be a hand-held tool for making minor adjustments??

            I hope not. I'd do it carefully by hand if necessary. If I were to use a powered sander, I have a mini Proxon Pensander that might be a candidate. But even that tiny one takes off way too much at a simple touch. The sander that is shown is quite good for box making -- as long as the box you're making isn't very small and you're not down to the hand-sanding stage yet.

            In terms of a tool in the context it's shown, they may as well have displayed an axe. I think it was just a marketing thing.

              I will happily defer to someone (you) that knows way more about tools then I will ever have a hope to. I swing a mean hammer, though.

                Hello everyone,

                I have to admit that I have been blown away by the overall quality of the MyPiece Mouthpieces!

                I will try and provide some further thoughts in regards to the MyPiece Mouthpieces in the coming days and weeks ahead!

                Best Wishes,

                  That is an underestimated quality!

                  I am curious about this mouthpiece concept though. And maybe a little bit sceptical. But hey, maybe that is just me being conservative.

                    What kind of timeline and expense are we looking at?

                      Hello everyone,

                      I have just heard that MyPiece Mouthpieces have just created their very first brass mouthpiece after quite a number of months of research and testing.

                      I really hope that I will be able to share some more information with you all in the near future!

                      Best Wishes,
