Flugelhorn Mouthpieces

Shank Styles

Various manufacturers have different dimensions to the receivers on their flugelhorn instruments. The standard for the Vacchiano line is the same as that used for Bach and Kanstul Copper instruments.

However...

All models are available with the alternative larger "Y" taper found on Yamaha, Benge, Getzen, Blessing and Jupiter instruments or, with the French or, Cuesnon taper. All non-standard tapers must be requested specifically.
