Meeting the needs of the modern euphonium!

Euphonium virtuoso Steven Mead designed his original mouthpiece in 1995. Since that time the euphonium has gone through several improvements, and the need for a new mouthpiece became apparent. The Steven Mead Ultra Series by Denis Wick creates a powerful sound with a singing quality to the high register. Its design is slightly different from the original Steven Mead. The outer shape is heaver, it has a more round cup, and the inner rim is a little sharper.The new "Ultra" range was launched to great acclaim simultaneously at the 2010 Music China in Shanghai and the National Brass Band Championships at Royal Albert Hall."From an initial concept drawing we started to get closer to the desired goal. Each prototype was subjected to rigorous testing in different acoustics, using "blind" judges listening to the new mouthpiece in relation to others. Each time following the tests we were able to make it a little better, then again a little better. Finally, we arrived at the finished version and I'm delighted with it!" - Steven Mead"The Ultra has such a powerful high register—I think that is the loudest top B that I have ever played!" - Chinese-born Allen Fan, a rising euphonium star based in Switzerland
