Schilke Cornet Mouthpieces
Renold O. Schilke had a profound influence on the development of brass mouthpiece design and pedagogy in the 20th century. His wisdom and insight have influenced several generations of performers, educators and students while setting the standard for other manufacturers. Today, Schilke Music Products continues to offer the highest level of expertise in assisting musicians when determining what mouthpiece might work best for their playing needs.
It is important to remember that a "quality sound" is a musicianís greatest asset. The instrument acts as an amplifier for the vibration produced within the mouthpiece. The mouthpiece is critical in determining the character of the sound, response, and intonation along with consistency of sound quality in all registers and dynamic levels. A mouthpiece is created of several components or variables that greatly influence a playerís sound. These variables include rim contour or rim shape, inner rim diameter or cup diameter, cup shape or cup volume, the throat, the backbore and shank or stem. All of these components play a major role in the final sound production on a brass instrument. General knowledge of these concepts and how they work can only assist the player in selecting equipment that improves their sound.
Some specifications are unavailable at this time. As soon as we receive them from Schilke, they will be posted.
