Laskey Trumpet Mouthpieces
The preferred size for large symphony orchestra players. Cup sizes D, B, MC, MD, C, S.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

Comments about Laskey 80 Series Trumpet Mouthpiece:
If you like Bach rims & cups you'll love Laskey pieces. They're similar but more comfortable, more consistent, and have extremely well matched backbores. Scott, who learned his trade at Schilke, is one of the best mouthpiece makers in the world and his product reflects his skill.
