RIMS FOR TRUMPET MOUTHPIECES
The function of the rim contour of mouthpieces is to support the vibration of the lips as much as possible. Consequently it shall neither be too wide (blocking) nor too narrow (cutting). A good rim should enable the musician to play over a long period of time. Extreme forms of shapes should not be taken into consideration (very steep curvature of the rim down to the outside or inside, too wide, too narrow).
To me it is personally very important to provide the musician with a perfectly fitting rim.
Who else if not the musician could tell us best what the ideal rim shape is?
Therefore we are permanently extending our range of rims or create customized rims on demand.
Some of our rims are available on one-piece Standard trumpet mouthpieces.
Our standard rims are described in the table below.
Note: Rim models labeled without any extension (e.g. -D) indicating a cup-width fitting to G-series underparts or greater.
Measure values in millimeter. Intentionally we used the values from our technical drawings with thousandth of millimeter.
*) regarding diameter and width of a rim refer to our technical description
