This is one of the top sellers — the Heritage 5 cornet mouthpiece. It has a deep cup to make a powerful, rich tone — just like the famous No 4 but a tad smaller.
The basis is the amazing 19th century models with a thin-walled cup nearest to the rim. Modern CNC technology has further reduced the wall thickness to 1.2mm. To this is added a modern idea; greater metal mass at the bottom of the cup.
The result is a rich sound, with a scintillating upper overtone structure, incredible responsiveness in pp playing and a much easier high register. This is a powerful mouthpiece but is also highly responsive.
The elegant gold-plating of rim and cup combined with the silver-plated body make this model look as good as it sounds.
