AT8U (Cup Diameter 32.8mm / Bore 7.90mm)
This new mouthpiece from Aaron Tindall is designed as a super-soloist’s mouthpiece for F tuba. It has a brilliant quality with an excellent high register, making it ideal for the rigorous demands of modern solo tuba repertoire. The cup has been designed to give great consistency of tone and a responsive low register, whilst producing a beautiful, singing tone in the high notes. The throat is larger than on some soloist models, allowing the player to produce a full sound across the range. 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 produces a rich and vibrant sound with plenty of focus. There is a distinct ‘shelf’ at the bottom of the cup which helps achieve a concentrated power that gives a sound that really projects.
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.
