TUBA MOUTHPIECES

The one comment we hear about Laskey tuba mouthpieces is that they sound thicker and more complex. The reason is in the design. Each aspect of a Laskey tuba mouthpiece, from the exterior shape to the cup design, from the rim contour to the backbore, has been carefully designed to maximize your potential.

 

TUBA CUPS

H (Helleberg)--Relatively straight sides that blend into a concave funnel as it enters the throat.

G (Geib)--Produces a more brilliant sound than the H and works well on rotary valve tubas

F--Like the Helleberg cup in shape but approximately 1/3 more shallow

C--A moderately shallow bowl cup that is ideal for solo performances on Eb and F tubas.

 

SHANK DIMENSIONS:

The standard shank on Laskey tuba mouthpieces is commonly referred to as the American (A) shank. This shank is available for all of our models. The larger European (E) shank is available for all our models as well.
