Piccolo Trumpet Mouthpieces

Vacchiano series for piccolo trumpet

 These piccolo pieces are designed with the symphonic player in mind. The emphasis is decidedly on sound. The cups are not extremely shallow, but just shallow enough to offer players who normally play on large orchestral equipment a spectrum switch in playability and color to enhance the upper register. For players looking for even greater ease in the upper register we recommend our Studio Master line all of which are available in either trumpet or piccolo cornet shanks.

Bore The bore size of the Vacchiano piccolo model is a #25 ( .149″ or 3.78 mm). This is 2 sizes larger than the standard bore size of a #27 drill (.144′ or 3.78 mm). Back bore The back bore of the Vacchiano piccolo models is also larger than the standard back bore.
All Vacchiano piccolo trumpet mouthpieces are available with trumpet or cornet shank. Please specify when ordering.

Studio Master piccolo

The SP, or Shallow Piccolo model combines elements of mouthpiece design that cover the best of both worlds. The cup is extra shallow and is shaped like an early baroque style mouthpiece with a tight throat area and a flat-bottomed, C style cup. This boosts the upper range while giving warmth to the sound. The bore on these models is a #25 (.144″ or .378mm) which can help to release the air flow, especially for symphonic players who have been accustomed to playing larger bore sizes, so that this piece plays like a larger mouthpiece while maintaining the benefits of the shallower cup to color the sound and improve the range.

The trumpet shank is the same length as the LX models (3.240″ or 79.76mm). The extra shortness of this length helps to tip the response of the overtones in the upper register.

The piccolo cornet shank has a bit tighter back bore than the Vacchiano piccolo models. This lends extra support for the upper register.
