AT1U (Cup Diameter 32.8mm / Bore 9.53mm)
This new mouthpiece designed by Aaron Tindall is the largest of the range, and is designed for use in big CC or Bbb tubas. It has straight walls after the rim leading to a very wide funnel-shaped cup with a large throat. The rim is designed by Warren Deck and is one of the most comfortable on the market. It features just the right amount of width and bite to give the player a sense of comfort and stability. This mouthpiece is for strong players and produces a massive deep sound.
The shank of this mouthpiece has been very carefully engineered to fit all tubas with the standard ‘Euroshank’-type fitting. Original lead-pipes from Meinl-Weston and B & S were used in this process. The exact matching of mouthpiece and instrument leadpipe is vital to achieve the correct response from modern German tubas.
