Product details

Suitable for

The innovation behind the Heritage Tenor Horn mouthpieces is the distribution of the mass. There is increased mass at the bottom of the cup and a thin cup wall and reduced weight behind the rim. The extra weight at the bottom of the cup helps provide power and projection, especially in the low register.

The thinner cup walls help create an improved responsiveness at all dynamic levels. The result is a mouthpiece which is quick to respond and which brings out the upper partials in the sound, creating clear and brilliant high notes. The widest mouthpieces are also the most shallow and, conversely, the mouthpieces with the smallest cup diameters are the deepest.

Heritage Tenor Horn mouthpieces will give a warm sound with plenty of ‘bloom’ in it, an easy high register and powerful low notes. The gold plated rim and cup give an ultra-smooth playing surface which is ideal for flexibility and for creating beautiful legato lines when playing.
