Description

The first Denis Wick mouthpieces were made in 1968, and the brand has grown so much that it is now one of the largest and most comprehensive in the world. They are famous for their wonderful sound and brilliant designs and are produced to the highest technical specifications. Special attention is paid to the rims, which are both comfortable and consistent. Special techniques are used to produce beautiful and extremely hard-wearing mouthpieces.

Denis Wick Paxman 5 French Horn Mouthpiece

The Denis Wick/Paxman range of mouthpieces has been developed with LSO principal horn Tim Jones, and uses the ideas underlying the Denis Wick Heritage range. This principle is based on a late 19th century design, where the cup wall is very thin near the mouthpiece rim, combined with the new idea to have substantially more mass lower down the cup. The results are amazing. The mouthpieces have an immediate, easy response, particularly in the high register, a smooth legato and a sound rich in overtones over the whole range. The 5, with a cup diameter of 17.50mm, has a great dynamic range whilst maintaining focus. This medium-deep cup is very popular with orchestral horn players and soloists alike, and gives a rich, vibrant sound with great focus.
