As every experienced trombone, baritone or euphonium player knows, the playability of these instruments depends greatly on the mouthpiece. Not all mouthpieces are made equal, and finding one that best suits your lip shape, embouchure and skill level is essential to your progression. With that in mind, you certainly won't have any problem finding a trombone, baritone or euphonium mouthpiece on today's market. In fact, top mouthpiece manufacturers like Denis Wick, Bach, Stork and countless others have become recognized in the brass instrument world for crafting high-quality mouthpieces.
As always, beginning with the best sellers is a good way to narrow down your search. If you're a bass trombonist, have a look at the Stork Custom Series Bass Trombone Mouthpiece in Silver. A huge favorite with professional players, the depth and focus of sound in these mouthpieces is unmatched and lightweight versions are also available for musicians who favor a bright tone and quick response.
Or, if the baritone is your chosen instrument, check out the Denis Wick Steven Mead Ultra Series Baritone Horn Mouthpiece in Gold. Baritone sensation Steven Mead designed his first mouthpiece in the mid-90s; of course, the baritone went through many changes since then and his new mouthpiece has been updated for that exact reason. Featuring a heavier outer shape and a sharper inner rim, this mouthpiece delivers a powerful sound and the high register is stunning.
This section is also jam-packed with euphonium mouthpieces, and the DEG Brian Bowman Signature Euphonium Medium Shank Mouthpiece in Silver is great for both pros and serious students. In the Brian Bowman's Signature Series, there are three models: the Model BB1, BB2 and BB3. The BB1 has a deep cup and large backbore to improve intonation and center of sound while the BB2 is inspired by the design of a traditional euphonium mouthpiece and sports a "v" cup style for a full response. As for the BB3, this model is ideal for younger players and it can also be used on the smaller English bore baritone horn.
