OVERVIEW

Get the exact mouthpiece of master bass trombonist Douglas Yeo.

The Douglas Yeo Signature Series mouthpiece features a large, symphonic size cup for a big, rich sound. It is characterized by a full, centered tone with a focused core; a brilliant, well-defined overtone series; and an even response in all registers and dynamics. It combines the best aspects of large, symphonic style mouthpieces with an ideal amount of outer mass and a carefully designed backbore and throat for improved high range and dynamic flexibility. Gold-plated rim and cup.

As Doug explains: "This mouthpiece is designed for the player who wants a big sound as well as flexibility. While I do most of my work on the bass trombone as a member of the Boston Pops Orchestra, I also enjoy giving recitals, playing in church, and doing jazz and commercial work. The mouthpiece works well in all of those situations. I insisted on a centered, solid sound that would sound good at 5, 50, and 500 feet. And it goes without saying that I wanted a mouthpiece that would play evenly and in tune in all registers. When I say I play this mouthpiece all the time in the Boston Symphony, I mean it-I use nothing else. Whether it be Brahms, Mozart, Beethoven, Mahler, Schumann or Berg, this mouthpiece simply works. I'm confident that if anyone tries this new mouthpiece, it will be the last one they buy."

Yamaha's Signature Series mouthpieces come after years of collaborating with hundreds of the world's best players at their R&D Ateliers. These players were unsatisfied with the commercial models out there and knew the Yamaha technicians would deliver exactly the tone and response they wanted. The demand for these mouthpieces has grown, so Yamaha decided to offer a select lineup of these mouthpieces. Each Signature Series mouthpiece is produced on a precise, computer-controlled lathe to guarantee each one is exactly the same as the one used by its namesake.

    Comments about Yamaha Douglas Yeo Signature Series Trombone Mouthpiece:

    I sometimes need to play bass trombone parts, but am reluctant to take the plunge and invest in a bass trombone. This mouthpiece, on my large bore tenor trombone, does the job even better than the Schiller 59 I had played for many years. It descends comfortably and beautifully toward the pedal range, while producing rich, full upper register sound.

    Comments about Yamaha Douglas Yeo Signature Series Trombone Mouthpiece:

    This mouthpiece is comfortable and produces a nice dark tone. It plays well both in the lower and medium registers. The tone doesn't break up or splat and the notes project well. I've been using mine of he past two months and I would recommend this for any bass trombonist who wants a large mouthpiece.

    Great Large Bass Trombone Mouthpiece!

    By

    Comments about Yamaha Douglas Yeo Signature Series Trombone Mouthpiece:

    I've had this mouthpiece for the past two months and think it is great. The rim is not too sharp and the tone is nice and dark. It's easy to play the lower notes yet it is fine for the medium to higher notes. I'm using this on my Bach 50B3LO. The combination of a great projecting trombone and this large mouthpiece is a winner in my estimation. I think that any bass trombonist who wants a large, comfortable mouthpiece for well rounded playing would be impressed. I have been using it with Bones Midwest trombone ensemble, church, community orchestra, and plan to use it with band this summer.
