Quality brass mouthpieces contribute to the high regard Yamaha has earned among beginning and professional musicians alike. The result of a special approach to design and manufacture, Yamaha mouthpieces deliver the performance and comfort required where they are needed most: where instrument meets musician.

The mouthpiece production technique used by Yamaha promises consistent quality mouthpieces, time after time. Other manufacturers use a specific cutting tool to create every mouthpiece, which causes problems as tools start to wear. This can result in inconsistent quality and poor performance. Yamaha's computer-aided design system and computer controlled lathe work together to produce the most precise, consistent mouthpieces in the world.

Canadian Brass Tuba Compare At: $95.00

Designed with Chuck Daellenbach, this mouthpiece features a full, rich sound with abundant overtones, and a clear and focused tone core so it projects well in all registers. A perfect balance between rim, cup and backbore design gives the mouthpiece a comfortable, easy playability.

Jim Self Compare At: $324.95

Jim's mouthpiece embodies his long experience of playing literally ALL types of music in highly demanding situations. Jim doesn't like changing rims, so he uses the same mouthpiece on all his tubas. It is a medium large rim that is comfortable to play over the many hours a day that are required in his work. The cup and backbore are rather large for the best combination of a good centered attack and a warm, alive sound. Jim says, "I feel more accurate on the high notes than on any previous mouthpieces, and on the low ones too."

The Bobo mouthpiece is available in two forms. The Solo model features a clear focused tone that sings and projects, and is especially suitable for solo performances and for use with F and Eb tubas. The Symphonic model is characterized by a warm tone, big enough to fill the concert with rich colorful sound. It is ideal for use with BBb and C tubas and can help enrich the tone of any ensemble.
