Stork Custom Mouthpieces
Stork Custom - Trombone Mouthpieces
BT1 - This is our largest model. The internal dimensions of this mouthpiece are so large that it is only offered on the heavy blank.
BT 1 1⁄4 - Shallower than the #1 with a unique blending of cup shape and depth. The bottom (or ledge) is quite high for a large mouthpiece, but the throat area opens up to provide quick response and great flexibility while still providing a large sound. The rim is slightly thinner than our other models with a crisp bite.
BT 4 - The overall cup volume for this mouthpiece is closest to that of a Bach 4G, however the throat area is more opened making this more of a “V” shaped design. The “V” shape can add a hint of brightness to the tone. The rim is a bit wider than standard rims with a soft, rounded bite.
BT 4.5 - The same cup and rim shape as the #4, just with a slightly smaller inner diameter.
BT5 - The overall cup volume for this mouthpiece is closest to that of a Bach 5G, however the throat area is more opened making this more of a “V” shaped design. The “V” shape can add a hint of brightness to the tone. This rim has a bit of flatness to the top and is very rounded on the bite. It is known for its extreme level of comfort.
BT6 - Same cup shape and rim as the #5 with a slightly smaller inner diameter.
T1 - The T1 is our most popular design for large and small shank trombone. The cup is a large sloping “V” shape. The back bore is slightly tighter than most other equivalent models. Players enjoy the benefit of the large cup – large sound profile, but with just a hint of added resistance for improved control and response. This is a very rounded rim
T2 - The T2 has a shallow cup in that the ledge of the cup slopes in quickly, however the throat area is very open. This is a great combination allowing greater ease in the upper register but enough cup volume to fill out the sound. This is the flattest rim of the series with a crisp bite to it.
T3 - A shallow cup with a tight throat. The shape is very “C” styled which adds darkness, slowing the air to help compensate for the shallowness rounding out the tone. This rim is rounded and a tad narrower than the rim of the T1.
