Overview

The Denis Wick DW3181 Heritage Series Cornet Mouthpiece are now available after the success of the Heritage trombone line. The new shape of the Heritage Cornet mouthpiece has a large amount of mass around the throat and backbore, with thinner walls towards the rim. This design makes the mouthpiece very responsive at soft dynamics and in the upper register with easy articulation, while producing a massive sound in the lower register and at loud dynamics. A great choice for the classical-focused player, the Denis Wick Heritage Series cornet mouthpieces are available in the same sizes as the standard Denis Wick Classic mouthpieces and are available in silver plate finish with a 23k gold rim, cup and backbore.

Comments about Denis Wick DW3181 Heritage Series Cornet Mouthpiece:

This mouthpiece is "almost" the perfect mouthpiece. I am a trombone player who loves to play my cornet. There is a DW mouthpiece that is new.... never before seen in America. It is called *4W*. There is also the *4BW*. I'm still waiting for them to become available with no luck. These heritage mouthpieces are that good. They are the holy grail for me at least. The *W* stands for wide. and please remember that I am a trombonist. A standard cornet mouthpiece will cause me problems. Air leaks out the side while in the upper register.
