Renaissance sackbut mouthpiece

Our Renaissance mouthpieces are available for alto, tenor and bass sackbut. They have a flat rim and a deep, slightly v-shaped cup, characteristic of the time. We offer different rim diameters, of which the smaller ones were more common in the Renaissance.

In terms of sound, these mouthpieces are rounded and soft and therefore mix very well, for example, in the Colla Parte. Our “V” mouthpieces work more smoothly, less noisy due to a change at the entrance to the bore and the lower register responds more easily. But their overall sound is more present and less historical.

The mouthpieces are turned from brass. Only the mouthpiece after Schnitzer (SOT-7) is three-part, cup and sleeve are turned, the shank is made of sheet metal according to the historical original.
