Monette Prana B1-3 S5 Slap Trumpet Mouthpiece

  • Monette Prana B1-3 S5 Slap

    Trumpet Mouthpiece

    We decided to revisit the original Monette mouthpiece design with the idea of an update after our friend Jerry Webster kept hearing his students playing our "SLAP" mouthpieces with great success. Jerry, who has used a B1-3 since the first one was made, asked us to design a new mouthpiece for him, and we had a great time working with our old friend. Please note that the S5 designation in this model refers to the computer design file number, not a specific cup shape. Therefore, the B1-3 S5 is a very different mouthpiece with a completely different cup shape than the similarly named B1-1 S5

    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.
