Your trumpet mouthpiece greatly impacts your instrument's playability and sound, along with the trumpet itself and accessories like mutes. Woodwind & Brasswind offers a huge selection of trumpet mouthpieces from brands like Bach, Denis Wick, Schilke and many others trusted for their exceptional products.
How do you know which mouthpiece is right for you? Two key factors are lip thickness and your embouchure formation. For beginners, also consider cup depth and cup diameter. Deeper cups have a dark tone while shallow cups make it easier to hit higher notes. As for cup diameter, a wider one will have a stronger impact over a larger area but will require stronger facial muscles to play. Since every trumpeter has their own unique technique and physical characteristics, you will probably want to try different mouthpieces to see what fits you best.
When choosing a trumpet mouthpiece, there is no right or wrong answer - it's all about personal preference and what you're comfortable playing on. If you need help with selecting a mouthpiece, read our Brass Mouthpiece Buying Guide or the helpful article How to Select a Brass Mouthpiece.
