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 Classic 3L Tuba Mouthpiece

From solo literature to orchestral performance, Denis Wick tuba mouthpieces meet the requirements of every musical style. All models have great flexibility, produce a rich sound, and have clear overtones. For all tuba model numbers, single numbers without the "L" are for older makes of European tubas with small mouthpiece fittings. Models with the "L" are for modern instruments.

The 3L is the most popular orchestral model. This model has a rounded cup, huge throat and backbore, and makes a rich organ-like sound. It suffers fewer intonation problems than the 24AW, although strong chops are needed to maintain the pitch in very top register, as the throat is so huge. With a massive low register, this transforms the sound of Eb tubas into a really full-toned orchestral instrument. This model is also very popular as a band mouthpiece, as it makes a very ‘blending’ luxuriant sound. Excellent feeling of security with a well-defined inner edge to the rim, and plenty of ‘grip’ from the silver plating.
