The Chubasco is excellent for those looking for a mouthpiece that projects, and holds up well while performing the powerful dynamic contrasts of lead playing. While the core of tone holds together the upper over tones cut through ensembles and allow the soloist to be heard. The rim is designed for maximum comfort without loss of sound, and ease of playability. The Chubasco produces the largest sound when compared to our other jazz mouthpieces, giving the soloist plenty of room for dynamic contrast and artistic expression. Features a shallow bowl shape cup.
Designed for Don Harwood, bass trombonist of the New York Philharmonic, this mouthpiece's goal is to make his job easier. The Don Harwood Signature Series mouthpiece accomplishes this task by projecting the clear independent voice of the orchestral bass trombone while locking in on octaves with the tuba, and supporting the trombone section of the orchestra. To accomplish this task the mouthpiece is designed with a medium cup and balanced backbore and throat enabling the Don Harwood Signature Series mouthpiece to project. Additionally, these features make the Don Harwood Signature a versatile bass trombone mouthpiece capable of supporting any orchestral section.
Alan Baer and Giddings and Webster have taken the original signature model mouthpiece and put a flatter narrower rim on it. In addition to this we have added a bit of mass around the throat of the mouthpiece, and we have made the mouthpiece out of 15-5 stainless steel. All of this combined makes a mouthpiece that is for folks who like a traditional flat rim with a sharper inner bite for their orchestral tuba playing needs. The 15-5 stainless steel is a high quality aerospace material that is harder than our regular 304 stainless steel mouthpieces.
