The one comment we hear about Laskey tuba mouthpieces is that they sound thicker and more complex. The reason is in the design. Each aspect of a Laskey tuba mouthpiece, from the exterior shape to the cup design, from the rim contour to the backbore, has been carefully designed to maximize your potential.
B--A deeper bowl than the G. Has a wonderful bottom sound
H (Helleberg)--Relatively straight sides that blend into a concave funnel as it enters the throat.
G (Geib)--Produces a more brilliant sound than the H and works well on rotary valve tubas
F--Like the Helleberg cup in shape but approximately 1/3 more shallow
C--A moderately shallow bowl cup that is ideal for solo performances on Eb and F tubas.
The standard shank on Laskey tuba mouthpieces is commonly referred to as the American (A) shank. This shank is available for all of our models. Noted models (*) are available in the larger European (E) shank as well.
