Denis Wick Heritage Series Trombone Mouthpiece
The first Denis Wick mouthpieces were made in 1968, and range has grown so much, that it is now one of the largest and most comprehensive in the world. They are famous for their wonderful sound and brilliant designs, and are produced to the highest technical specifications. Special attention is paid to the rims, which are both comfortable and consistent. Special techniques are used to produce beautiful and extremely hard-wearing silver and gold plating.
Consistently evolving its technology and ideas, the latest selection of mouthpieces, released by Denis Wick Products, are straight from the cutting-edge of brass engineering the label 'Heritage' is particularly apt, since these innovative mouthpieces strongly resemble many 19th century Hawkes mouthpieces, which served as an inspiration rather than a basis for Denis Wick's new design. The technology behind them, however, is strikingly revolutionary. the Gold-coloured rim and silver mouthpiece are quite attractive and very unique. Presented in packaging that resembles a type usually reserved for an expensive watch or ring,m you can be assured of the quality of this product, into which its makers have poured a great deal of care and precision.
The main development to note is the interesting lack of density at the top of the mouthpiece, particularly around the rim which has no metal directly behind it (unlike previous versions). The bulk of the weight of the mouthpiece (which is surprisingly light overall) is deployed towards the base of the cup, providing extremely powerful sound when needed. the contact of the new thin rim on the lips is also very comfortable and the lack of metal behind the rim gives a slightly better feeling of control over the sound - particularly helpful for quiet entries if your a soloist. The combination of power and sensitivity is ell-suited for horn players in bands with wide dynamic ranges - it permits greater control over the softest entries and plenty of beef when fortissimo markings crop up.
