Unlike traditional tenor horn mouthpieces, which are essentially shrunken trombone mouthpieces, Denis Wick’s design is more closely related to the French horn mouthpiece. With this mouthpiece, your tenor horn’s tone will blossom with a captivating, harmonious nature and powerful projection that slices to the front of the arrangement. This mouthpiece, the 3A, features a deep cup with an 18.5mm cup diameter. The V-type backbore adds serious power and projection to your sound. You and your new Denis Wick 3A Tenor Horn Mouthpiece will soon correct the notion that tenor horns lack the projection and tonal qualities to be included in brass bands.
Note: According to Denis Wick Products, this mouthpiece’s shank is designed to fit British-style tenor horns, not the German-style rotary-valve oval models.Related Videos: Classic Series Tenor Horn Mouthpiece - 3Denis Wick Products: the crossroads of excellence and ingenuity
Like many premium brands, Denis Wick Products’ beginnings were modest. In 1968, company founder Denis Wick began making mouthpieces and mutes to satisfy his own needs as principal trombonist of the London Symphony Orchestra. Soon, other players took notice and commissioned custom mouthpieces for themselves — and Wick never looked back. Since the ’70s, Denis Wick Products has grown into an internationally recognized brand synonymous with world-class mouthpiece and mute designs. Based in southern England, the company’s highly skilled artisans still craft their products by hand. Indeed, each mouthpiece and mute produced are shining examples of Denis Wick’s relentless pursuit of the perfect sound.
