The mouthpiece in this listing was made in close consultation with Dave, part of a project that was to include a shallow cup and a deeper cup. This mouthpiece (based on his Calicchio cup) is stamped "1-5 3". The 1 in this case refers to the shallow cup, the 5 refers to a no. 25 throat, and 3 refers to the largest of the backbores we tried.
It is also marked DF, but we do not recall why it was marked that way. The mouthpiece was not entirely to Dave's liking, however, and he decided to go in another direction and this project was abandoned. Nevertheless, this is a fabulous mouthpiece.
The inner rim diameter is 0.630 / 16 mm, and resembles the famous 6A4A used by the great Bill Chase. Throat is a slightly larger no. 25 instead of the standard 27; and an open backbore, all on an elegant blank. Dave is all about efficiency, and his idea was to balance the shallow high-compression cup with a slightly more open throat and backbore combination for use on his medium bore trumpet. This mouthpiece should pair well with any number of pro horns that have Medium or ML bore sizes, from.
