Mega Tone mouthpieces employ more than double the mass of ordinary models to produce the darker sound cherished by many jazz and symphonic players. A slightly larger throat affords less resistance and greater flexibility resulting in warmer, more powerful sound.

Excellent Mouthpiece

By David-nlDTX

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Bach Mega Tone Tuba/Sousaphone Mouthpiece:

I've been playing on a Miraphone mouthpiece (and tuba) for quite some time now, and it's given me really great results. However, lately I have been given music which requires a lot more versatility. So I decided to buy a MegaTone size 7. I have to say that my range has increased half an octave up (giving me a top of the 4th ledger line Bb!). The pedals are gorgeous and dark. However, this is not a very bright-sounding mouthpiece, so dont use this for pep band or marching. I have not had a concert with it, but I hope I will soon. This mouthpiece in combination with my Miraphone and my Crystal Clear (yes, its clear) KellyBerg make my playing top notch.

excellent mouthpiece

By Travis Johns

from Pinconning

Comments about Bach Mega Tone Tuba/Sousaphone Mouthpiece:

Before I got my Bach Megatone, I had a basic size 16 muthpiece. I love my Megatone mouthpiece. I bought size 18. excellent for high notes, but kind of hard to get lower notes.

this mouthpiece is great

By stedman scott

from west palm beach florida

Comments about Bach Mega Tone Tuba/Sousaphone Mouthpiece:

I love this mouthpiece I have a size 24aw and it is very great at getting the lower notes as we say peddle tones and getting the higher octave none in the south as sweet notes. this mouthpiece is a all around mouthpiece it is big but not to heavy it is just great you should try it you might just fall in love with it I know I did. Also this is an great mouthpiece if you love playing chords it is a good mouthpiece for high notes.

Must Buy

Comments about Bach Mega Tone Tuba/Sousaphone Mouthpiece:

I have been playing my 18 for about 2 years along with several others, including a loud and a few Helleburgs, and I must say that the Megatone is the best thing since minced lasagna or sliced bread if you prefer that analogy. Pedals roll off your lips, and the high notes come easily enough. If you're considering something new and you need something good for everything, give it a shot.

Great Mouthpiece. Go with the 18.

By Tuba addict

from Boston

Comments about Bach Mega Tone Tuba/Sousaphone Mouthpiece:

This is the best and most versatile mouthpiece I have ever used. I highly recommend the 18. It is a good all around mouthpiece. It has clear definition on the higher notes and the extra metal helps greatly with the petal tones. The 24 is great for some people but I find that the slightly smaller cup of the 18 helps with the upper register without harming how well I play in the lower register.

Love it in my big horn

By Tuba in Pgh

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Bach Mega Tone Tuba/Sousaphone Mouthpiece:

I was playing a Helleberg in my Conn 20J, which was fine, but I wanted a fuller sound out of the big horn. I went with the MegaTone12. If I felt my embouchure could handle it, I would have gone with the 7. I love this mouthpiece. I use it in my VMI 4-valve also and can't get over how much fuller and rounder the sound it. Great mouthpiece.

Not explainable in one line!

By Elmo

from Silver City NM

Comments about Bach Mega Tone Tuba/Sousaphone Mouthpiece:

I had started with a Conn-helleburg 7B, and that mouthpiece was wonderful, great tone, not too heavy, and I was able to get a very clear and deep sound. When that mouthpiece finally wore out, I decided to try something new. That's when I saw a Bach megatone in a magazine. I had wondered how this "new shape" would be and I was worried it would be different, too different to get used to. When it finally came, I quickly got out my tuba, and tried it out. It did take a while to get used to but now that I am, I've noticed things like how much easier to get to the pedal tones, yet still hitting the high notes with ease! This mouthpiece took every good quality that I had with the 7B, and enhanced it! I recommend to anyone who wants to get one to do so but, like in one of the previous comments, if you're used to a small cup, it's better to get a size 7 instead of a 24AW.

never had a better mouthpiece

By paul creed

from milford, ohio USA

Comments about Bach Mega Tone Tuba/Sousaphone Mouthpiece:

This mouthpiece makes your tone beautiful as well as deep! Because of the added metal to the mouthpiece shaft the tone resonates better.
