Denis Wick DW3183 Heritage Series Tenor Horn - Alto Horn Mouthpiece 1
The Heritage Series tenor horn – alto horn 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 mouthpieces are available in the same sizes as the standard Classic Series mouthpieces.
