OVERVIEW

The signature mouthpiece of a great French horn player.

This mouthpiece has a wide inner rim diameter with a large V-shaped cup. Tom requires an extremely versatile mouthpiece because he plays in so many different settings: large symphony orchestras, small chamber ensembles, brass groups, and in solo recitals. With this mouthpiece he can play as high or strong as is necessary, and yet can create as rich and full a sound as he wants in any register. The sound is well focused for clarity and projection, and the playability is responsive and comfortable. Silver-plated.

In addition to his solo work, Thomas Bacon has held principal horn positions with the Syracuse Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Houston Symphony and the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestras. He is in the highest echelon of hornists worldwide.

Yamaha's Replica Series mouthpieces come after year 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. Each Replica 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.

Better for low register than high

Comments about Yamaha Thomas Bacon Replica Series French Horn Mouthpiece:

I agree with the previous comment that this mouthpiece is comfortable and produces a wonderful tone. But it's BIG! The inner diameter is 18mm, which puts it on the large end of the scale. If you prefer to play in the upper register, this mouthpiece is probably going to make you work harder. But if you like the low register most of the time, or need a second mouthpiece for those extended bass clef moments, this mouthpiece will do well. I'm keeping it for that purpose.

Great MP

Comments about Yamaha Thomas Bacon Replica Series French Horn Mouthpiece:

This MP provides a very fluid transition from low to high and back again without giving you that little "glitch" that you sometimes get with other mouthpieces. It provides the player with a warmer and more rich sound over many of the mp's that are out there. It also fits into the mp receiver better than most which greatly helps with the initial attack of the note. I have also found that I do not get nearly as tired with this mp as I do with many others that are out there. Give this winner a try today !!
