Flugelhorn Mouthpieces

Flugelhorn mouthpieces are available as:

One Piece
Two Piece - Rim and Underpart

Individual pieces are compatible with other manufacturers.  Rims and underparts have Bach threads (other threadings are available as a special order).
 
 
Flugelhorn mouthpieces are available in two shank sizes:
 
Standard Taper: fits Yamaha, Getzen, Callet, Benge, King, Conn, Weril, Holton, other "American" flugelhorns (not Bach).
 
Bach Taper: fits Bach, Olds, Courtois, LeBlanc, most Kanstuls.
 
Rims
Marking Description
S The standard rim shape in the FCB line.  A comfortable shape 
  aiding articulation, flexability, and endurance. 
   
O An "orchestral" rim shape with more (sharper) bite than the "S" rim. Comparable to a Bach 1X or Parke style shape.
W Similar to the Standard rim, but slightly wider.
Cups
Marking Description
F A great all around sounding flugelhorn cup.
  Available in Standard and Bach Tapers. 
   
FD A deeper and darker sounding cup.
The FD cup is only availble with a Standard
Taper shank.*
*The standard taper shank that is paired with the FD cup is shorter and has a more parabolic backbore than the standard taper shank that is paired with the F cup.  This is to balance the extra depth of the FD cup in regard to playability and overall pitch on the flugelhorn.  Both Standard Taper shanks work on flugelhorns requiring standard tapers.
