Engineered like no other mouthpiece, the Curry Standard Line incorporates the same rim and bitepoint on the shallowest to the deepest cup within each diameter. This feature gives you the freedom to select the right cup for the job without having to get used to a different rim.
There is a gradual reduction of undercut, or initial slope into the main, or first cup, from the deeper B cup, to the shallow XS cup. This feature reduces the volume of the first cup. It also allows for more support in the upper register and a progressively brighter sound. The second cup is the convex portion of the cup that connects the first cup with the bore, or drill hole. Second cup dimensions are especially critical in determining resistance, definition of attacks, as well as the overall character and timbre of sound. Second cup dimensions in the Curry Standard Line are consistent throughout each diameter, so that a relatively shallow 3Z has many of the same sound characteristics as the deeper 3C or 3B cups.
I ordered a 3C Curry trumpet mouthpiece and matching flugel mouthpiece. I’m delighted - they are really comfortable and definitely suit me more than the Bach equivalent. The mouthpiece is a little longer than my Bach with a slightly larger ‘gap’ if that makes a difference to others - it certainly works for me. Ordered from the UK on bank holiday Monday and they were with me by the Wed! Highly recommended.
Easy to play, good depth to the sound, lacks high overtones and it
reduced the attack clarity. It will brighten up a LITTLE when you push it.
Delighted with mouthpiece I needed a bigger rim following dental surgery. I am very pleased with mouthpiece and the prompt dispatch to the UK.
Very comfortable rim, perfect for C trumpet
