Monette Prana B1-1LD S1 Slap Trumpet Mouthpiece

  • Monette Prana B1-1LD S1 Slap

    Trumpet Mouthpiece

    With a slightly shallow "Slap" cup, this model feels about the same depth as our deeper lead trumpet mouthpieces such as the B4LD. While the physical depth from the high point of the rim is actually closer to a B2 (see chart), the unusually round B1-1 rim (which curves very far down into the cup) makes the mouthpiece feel and play like a more shallow mouthpiece. The end result is a mouthpiece that is almost impossible to "bottom out" on, but still helps produce a huge lead trumpet sound, with a very easy upper register. After dozens of prototypes as we fine-tuned this design, Dave Monette played the final version right off the lathe, and was stunned with the results. Designed for our many friends in Brazil who have asked for this model for many, many years! - the manufacturer

    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 Prana 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 partof 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.
