The Classic is the original design. This gives clarity, precision, and a very easily controlled, centred sound. It adds more brilliance and richer upper overtones than the convex outer profiles of other designs. The Classic design is very responsive and easy to play. It has excellent flexibility and a rich tone.


Denis Wick offers silver-plated and gold-plated mouthpieces. Silver plating is widely used among brass players because of its bite (the tendency of the mouthpiece to stay in one place on the embouchure) and its brilliant, projecting tone. Gold plated mouthpieces are preferred by musicians that favor a softer feel, darker tone and better response.

Design based on the mouthpiece used on the F trumpet by John Solomon, principal trumpet of the London Symphony Orchestra 1904-1936. This was done in 1972, under the supervision of John Wallace, OBE, then co-principal of the LSO.
The sound quality is rich and dark, with a powerful presence, able to ride over a modern brass section. It demands a strong embouchure and breath control. The HeavyTop version gives even more power. Both are strongly favoured by orchestral 2nd trumpeters.
