Like the instrument, Laskey Tuba Mouthpieces are a towering presence in low brass playing. With a thicker sound and more complex geometry, every aspect of a Laskey Tuba Mouthpiece, from the iconic rim to the exterior shape and cup, has been carefully designed to provide the clear articulation, precise slotting, and crisp response.
The Geib-style G Series produces a more brilliant sound than the H Series and works incredibly well on rotary valve tubas.
After testing numerous tuba makes and models, two shank sizes were developed to meet the needs of a wide variety of mouthpiece receivers: American (US) shanks fit most American made and styled instruments, while European (EU) shanks fit many European made and styled instruments, with the exception being most 6/4 CC tubas, which require the EU shank.
American (US) Tuba Shank Measurements:
Taper Angle: 1.41 degrees
European (EU) Tuba Shank Measurements:
Taper Angle: 1.37 degrees
It is important to note that Gold Mouthpieces are a Special Order Only product. While we might carry limited inventory of these valuable and costly pieces, there might be a lead-time of 45 days from the date of order. Please also note that All Gold Mouthpieces are FINAL SALE ONLY, as any wear on a gold mouthpiece shows more easily and is not as repairable as silver counterparts. Thank you for your understanding.
These mouthpieces do everything very well. The articulation is very clear and even, everywhere on the horn. The rim feel is great: sharp and precise but confortable. The sound is very balanced and colour is flexible. Blend is easily achievable across the orchestra. I love these mouthpieces!
