Demy Ophicleide Mouthpiece

Starting at: $165.00

This mouthpiece was developed as a collaboration between Peter Pickett and Richard Demy by comparing period trombone and ophicleide mouthpieces from the 1860s to modern trombone mouthpieces.   This resulting mouthpiece mimics the same evolutionary changes that trombone mouthpieces underwent, but unlike trombone mouthpieces, it retains the dimensions that are needed for the instrument to play in tune and have a centered tone.  The resulting mouthpiece allows period and reproduction instruments to match volume and blend with modern brass instruments. It retains the characteristic timbre and articulation of the ophicleide, and it has a clear and consistent tone at all of the ophicleide's volumes and ranges.
