This series uses the rim contour of the 80 and 75 series but in a slightly smaller diameter. Provides a cleaner, more brilliant sound than our 68 series. Ideal for those looking for a mouthpiece the size of a 1 1/2 C.How Cup Depth Affects Sound
Many times players believe that their playing ranges are based on the depth of a mouthpiece cup--if the cup is shallow then they will be able to play higher. The truth is, range is based on your ability to vibrate your lips at a given frequency. The cup depth will not affect how fast you can vibrate your lips. What the cup depth will affect is the color of the tone you are capable of producing. The deeper cups will assist in producing a thicker, darker sound. The shallower cups will support a register that you already are capable of producing, as well as help create a more brilliant sound.What Do the Sizes Mean?
Laskey trumpet rims are listed by the approximate inside diameter measurement. If a mouthpiece measures .680 inches on the ID, the size is the last two digits or 80.Throat Size
Standard throat size on all trumpet mouthpieces is .144 (#27). Our standard backbore has been designed to provide ideal intonation, support and projection.
