I was introduced to the Kellyberg mouthpiece last week. My immediate reaction was unbridled enthusiasm, and it has not diminished. I used to play on a Helleberg mouthpiece, but I changed because the cut of the metal inner rim was rather sharp for me and not very comfortable. The Kellyberg Lexan polycarbonate rim is very comfortable by comparison. I play a Miraphone 188 in the South Carolina Philharmonic, and the orchestra mouthpiece I have been using has given my very good results. But I have desired a broader sound with a little less bite to it. The Kellyberg gives me the smoothest sound I have ever gotten. I then found out how inexpensive this mouthpiece is. This could change my thinking as a teacher. Because of the price of most brands of mouthpieces, sometimes $100 on discount, I have never been one to experiment or to recommend experimenting, it's just too expensive. When the Kelly mouthpiece starts becoming available in other stock sizes I plan on having them available for my students to try, and it won't cost me an arm and a leg.

Bass trombone is my main instrument, but sometimes I play a small bore Olds tuba with a Bach 24AW mouthpiece.I am frustrated by not getting a good low F on the tuba. I hoped the Kellyberg would be a bigger mouthpiece but my measurements found it was actually smaller.In playing, it was no help in producing a low F, so I sent it back.

Not a mouthpiece of serious musicians

This mouthpiece is for amateur musicians looking for a cool looking mouthpiece. If you are serious about playing tuba do not purchase this mouthpiece

I had one for playing sousaphone in the desert and lost it. It was such a good investment, I bought another. However, "Harvest Gold" is more like raw brass color.

What A Bargain

By

I finally ordered a KellyÆs for both my tuba and euphonium when a sale came up. Ordered on a Wed. late afternoon and they were at my door Friday A.M. I got distracted while opening the package and almost immediately dropped the tuba mouthpiece on the hard tile floor in my kitchen. No damage from a 4 foot vertical drop!

Fabulous Mouthpiece!

By 

from South Carolina

I am a student of Dr. Davis and after the lauds he gave the Kellyberg, I decided to try it myself. I currently play on a metal Conn Helleberg so I was not expecting much of a change. Imagine my shock the first time I tried the Kellyberg and found out what a difference the in sound there was! The new mouthpiece is so incredibly light when I play, it is a nice change. Not to mention the edge that usually comes from extreme volume playing is virtually completely gone. This mouthpiece is a must have for any tuba player, especially at such a low cost.

Must-have for any serious tuba player

By 

from Albion, MI

With the price of this mouthpiece, how can you go wrong? And the kind of sound it produces is so different from metal mouthpieces. Before this, I was just using a big ol' Bach 24AW. I tried my Kellyburg out on my school's sousaphone at a pep band gig for the first time last night, and it gave me the perfect kick I need for marching/pep band stuff. Low notes roll out effortlessly compared to before (which I've been needing on my pep band gigs), and the broader tone is just right for the sousaphone. After just one night, I'm sold on this for all my future sousa needs. I love the lightness of the mouthpiece, and the fact that it's always warm (can't wait to march with it in parades next year), but it's not going to be an all-purpose for me. It doesn't seem to have a dark enough tone to use it much in the concert hall, and it's more demanding to play with, but I'm quite satisfied with my purchase.

Great for playing loud with a sustained tone

By 

from georgia

I originally played a Conn Helleberg mouthpiece, and I had heard about Kelly mouthpieces and wanted to try one. I was happy that they offered a mouthpiece similar to the one I was already using. This mouthpiece is great if you love playing loud and getting that throaty sound when you spread the tone a little bit. If I were you I'd stick with a traditional mouthpiece in the concert hall, and save this one for marching or pep bands. It's virtually indestructible and extremely lightweight. A great buy for the price.

Great for beginners and embouchure visualization!

By 

from Ontario, Oregon, USA

Site Member

I'm a band director in a small rural school district in Oregon. I bought a KellyBerg mouthpiece for use in an American Band College tuba project on embouchure and tone production. The clear mouthpiece allows me to see if the student's lips are formed in the necessary shape to get good tone happening. Plus they're light enough to carry home and around when a little sixth-grader can't take a tuba everywhere--I have my serious tubists do lots of mouthpiece buzzing. If they want to "upgrade" to a more "serious mouthpiece", they can certainly do that later, but it's a great tool for many beginners.

WOW!!!

This mouthpiece is for any tuba player in a high school marching band. There is no metal ring digging in to your mouth when you play loud and hard. This is a great buy.

I just bought one.

I got the Kellyburg Clear. I like that it is very light compared to my Tommy Johnson N4. One thing I didn't like about it was when I started to blast it starts vibrating. It's great for Marching band and pepband but not concerts.
