    Trumpet Mouthpiece

    B3 This mouthpiece has always been one of the more popular mouthpieces we make. We think it will be even more popular, now that all our mouthpieces including this one have the rims and cups cut on our state-of-the-art CNC lathe. One drawback to this mouthpiece in the past has been that it has relatively small "targets" on each note. Now that all our mouthpieces are made on our new computer lathe, we have been able to "clean up" the last arc at the bottom of the cup for a perfect tangent blend into the throat of the mouthpiece. This opens up the target size, and makes the mouthpiece more forgiving to play without losing any of the positive qualities players have enjoyed with this size for years.

    Blank Weight This model is available in one of three weights. Please specify weight when ordering (use the Comments box during Checkout to do so). If no weight is specified, we will send you the most popular STC-1 heavy blank. All descriptions areby the manufacturer.

    • XLT - Lightest blank. Designed mainly for lead playing. Brightest sounding model with the easiest upper register. Easiest to hear behind the instrument.
    • LT - Medium (standard) weight blank. Popular with big band and Broadway show players. Heavy enough to help a lead player sound clean and full, while still allowing a brilliant and exciting upper register.
    • STC-1 - Heaviest blank. Introduced in 1987, this is the most popular with classical and jazz players. The extra weight and quality of metal allows the player's sound to be thick, rich and full, while still retaining brilliance and sparkle at all dynamics. Locked in, secure response makes performance easier in stressful playing conditions.

    Instrument Key Monette Classic mouthpieces are custom tailored to the key of the instrument they are intended for. A mouthpiece intended for a B-flat instrument should not be used in a C, etc.. Using the correct keyed mouthpiece is an important part of the Monette philosophy. Specify your instrument's key when ordering (use the Comments box during Checkout to do so). If key is not specified, we will send you a B-flat mouthpiece. Instrument keys available include B-flat, C, D, and E-Flat. In addition, models are available for Cornet, B-flat Piccolo, A Piccolo, G Piccolo & Flugelhorn.
