Comments about Schilke Standard Series French Horn Mouthpiece in Silver:
The larger bore and cup size have helped restore confidence in the lower range as I expected plus a deeper, fuller sound. It has taken a few days to adjust to playing with the new dimensions. As I read before the higher range is a bit more challenging. I am greatly enjoying the experience. I am an amateur 66 year old playing in my church orchestra and a local community orchestra.
