Asymmetric 544 3C+ Trumpet  ...Asymmetric – Asymmetric 544 3C+ Trumpet Mouthpiece
The Asymmetric 544 is a 3C+ trumpet mouthpiece. The 544 trumpet mouthpiece design produces a little brighter sound than other orchestral mouthpieces without losing it’s versatility. The plus means easier high-register, more endurance and several additional semitones of high range. Like the other Asymmetric mouthpieces, the throat is open (.150″) for a bigger sound, but not to the point of adversely affecting endurance or intonation. Additionally, the cup and backbore have been balanced. This is a trumpet mouthpiece of choice for all-around applications.Mouthpiece case and brush

Asymmetric Poet Flugelhorn  ...Asymmetric – Asymmetric Poet Flugelhorn Mouthpiece
The Asymmetric Poet Flugelhorn mouthpiece incorporates new design, manufacturing and assembly features that raise your high range limit, and in most cases, double your endurance. The Poet provides greater cup volume, required for the Flugelhorn , while retaining the lower lip restrictor, the signature feature of an Asymmetric mouthpiece. The Asymmetric feature eases the whole playing experience, and provides flexibility, comfort, ease of high notes, and above all – sound.When the ultimate expression of intimacy is desired, there is nothing like the haunting, warm and seductive sound of the Flugelhorn. For the last 50 years or so, trumpet players have found that the flugelhorn, with its ease of playing and fingering (same as the trumpet), along with its sound and adaptability, has given players an instant doubling horn with little or no work to master. But the Flugelhorn does have a few limitations.Most players find the higher end of the range (high A and above), elusive. And, endurance also, sometimes suffers, especially with the larger Flugelhorns and mouthpieces. The POET solves these problems and provides you with the ultimate in Flugelhorn capability. The combination of your flugelhorn and the Poet mouthpiece gives you a warm and buttery sound.

Asymmetric Opera 545 Trumpet …

Asymmetric Opera 545 Trumpet  ...Asymmetric – Asymmetric Opera 545 Trumpet Mouthpiece
The Opera 545 trumpet mouthpiece is designed for symphony players, jazz players and others desiring a less aggressive, more legitimate sound with good projection. The upper rim has a well defined inner edge for reliable upper lip suspension, good flexibility and clean attack. The rim surface is semi curved with a slightly higher inboard surface, and slightly softened outside edge for comfort and endurance. The bottom rim inner edge has also been softened to improve low register performance and flexibility. The #2 Schmitt style backbore, effectively deeper cup (minimal cup/backbore separation) and 25 throat (.150″) along with massive cup and shank weighting tend to provide excellent slotting and a somewhat darker, more Teutonic sound, ideal for symphonic, operatic or jazz performances. Enhanced range and endurance are here, too. This combination of features in a legitimate, orchestral mouthpiece is hard to find.Mouthpiece case and brush

The Opera 545 ModelFor Symphony players, Jazz players and others desiring a less aggressive, more legitimate sound with good projection, but somewhat less edge than either the 3C+544 or the Lead 342. The upper rim has a well defined inner edge for reliable upper lip suspension, good flexibility and clean attack. The rim surface is semi-curved with a slightly higher inboard surface, and slightly softened outside edge for comfort and endurance. The bottom rim inner edge has also been softened to improve low-register performance and flexibility.

The 3C+544 ModelSimilar in design to the Opera 545 but effectivly slightly shallower due to more cup/backbore separation (longer cylinder) with much less weighting, a different backbore configuration and a slightly different rim geometry. These design features tend to produce a little brighter sound than the Opera 545, but without the edge and cutting power of the Lead 342. Slotting is also a little less for more overall,
