ST Series

Tarr

This series refers to an English mouthpiece from around 1800, probably by Pace, owned by Dr. Edward H. Tarr (ex Joseph Wheeler, London). The corpus of the original mouthpiece is made of brass and has a silver edge soldered, which can be found in many historical mouthpieces from England. Tarr blew it on the original mouthpiece in 1980-82, but gave it up in favor of an Egger copy because the cup of the original is so deep that the playing was very strenuous in the high register, especially in D major. To make up for this, we make our copies with a shallower cups. The edge shape of the original mouthpiece is slightly rounded and similar to a modern rim. Its inner diameter is similar to that of a Vincent Bach 1 1/2 C.

The mouthpieces of the ST series produce a bright sound and are well suited for both the 3-hole and the 4-hole trumpets. Particularly recommended to trumpeters who use a similar size on their modern trumpet and who are looking for a mouthpiece that comes close to a modern mouthpiece in terms of rim shape and cup depth. This makes it easier to switch from the valve trumpet to the baroque trumpet.
