Comments about Denis Wick Flugelhorn Mouthpiece in Gold:

The 3BFL offers a uniquely rich, warm and true European flugelhorn sound. The design is a perfect balance -- a deep resonant tone while still maintaining responsiveness and an accessible upper register.

For me, this is a much more practical choice than the 2FL (which I tried side-by-side for 2 weeks). The 3BFL cup is just a few thousandths smaller and shallower. Yet it offers nearly the same sonorous qualities as the 2FL, but with greater ease of playability and a much improved higher range.

Some horn players today think that bigger is always better and that playing giant, toilet-bowl size cups makes them superior musicians. Other trendy players use such small, shallow cups that their sound is stuffy and stunted.

As a professional jazz musician, I've played numerous trumpet and flugelhorn mouthpieces over the years. Obviously, mouthpiece selection is a very personal thing and must consider physiology, embouchure development, playing range and desired sound.

The 3BFL is a beautiful compromise... but does require decent chops to move into the higher range. I'm very pleased with this Denis Wick mouthpiece and can highly recommend it to other intermediate to advanced players who are looking for a fuller, richer flugelhorn sound.

    Comments about Denis Wick Flugelhorn Mouthpiece in Gold:

    I find the recently purchased denis wick gold 2FL a "fabulous piece of work":The dark melodious flugel sound surpasses just "a tad" my DW2BFL,which I really like and thought of as having "the quintessential"flugel sound untill trying out the 2FL.I also find that in my efforts to play the 2FL just as I perform with my 2BFL strengthens my embouchure,enabling me to perform with greater efficiency using my DW2BFL."THANKS"!!

    works very well for me and my Conn Flugelhorn!

    By Neal Corwell

    from Clear Spring, Maryland

    Comments about Denis Wick Flugelhorn Mouthpiece in Gold:

    I ordered this mouthpiece on the basis of some online recommendations, which said it worked well with the horn I'd just ordered. My new horn, a Conn Vintage IFR, sounded good with the stock mouthpiece included in its case, but, to my surprise, it sounded very different and even better with the Dennis Wick. With the Wick, the sound was mellower, making for more contrast with a trumpet timbre. Also, the tone was purer, clearer, more centered, and with a more even and consistent quality from low to high register. I realize that different folks have different sounds they're searching for, plus we're all physically different, so certainly it's not the mouthpiece for everyone. For example, when I use the Wick, the horn plays more softly. For me this is not an issue, as a matter of fact, I consider it a positive thing. Others may feel differently about this trait, or perhaps because of a difference of embouchure and approach, maybe the Wick does NOT make their horn play softer. I feel I can only speak for myself on such a personal issue as mouthpiece choice. Bottom line though: I am thrilled with the 2 FL mouthpiece, and feel it matches my Conn Flugelhorn perfectly.

    A little dissappointed

    By Levi Goin

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about Denis Wick Flugelhorn Mouthpiece in Gold:

    Based upon other Barrington flugel reviews, I had read, I purchased the 4FL thinking I'd get a significant difference in the tone on my Barrington flugel but it sounds very similar to the stock mouthpiece and is harder to play in the upper register. I also got a Bach 5C which plays much easier in the upper register.
