Arnold Jacobs, legendary musician and teacher, was famous for his sound. This possessed a vibrant core, great intensity and sonority, unsurpassed tonal beauty and unlimited dynamic range. His mouthpiece was unique; refined to a high point of sophistication and efficiency. Surely the most sophisticated tuba mouthpiece ever; elegant in design, live and responsive. The Arnold Jacobs Heritage offers a unique sound, dark in character. The core is clearly defined yet strong and broad. Response is even and flows over a broad compass, the low register is highly efficient and the high range has great stability.
Bore: 8.5 mm.
The Canadian Brass are proud to present four new mouthpieces developed by Robert Tucci, a student of Arnold Jacobs and one of the world's most experienced and prolific mouthpiece designers. These reflect the great heritage of our teacher, Arnold M. Jacobs, his enormous influence on modern brasswind performance, his unique concept of tone and his constant search for refinement in tonal quality, dynamic range and efficiency.
