Breslmair for horns
Horn mouthpiececs are given with labels which indicate the width of the bell (at 1.3mm) and the depth according to the table. (1 corresponds to shallow, 6 would indicate great depth)
The digit preceding this label indicates the rim shape.
Rim shape 1: round, slim contour Rim shape 2: broad, flat contour Rim shape 3: broad, round contour
Example: 2D3 corresponds to rim shape 2, width 17.0mm (D), depth (medium-depth, drill 0 4.3)
Breslmair for horns
All horn mouthpieces are offered with two different shaft-drills. (Additional imprint with the model label) „S“ conical, German drill (according to T. Sakaino, standard) “B”- corresponds to the Viennese drill (if requested) The widths A, B and C are construed for rather high horns. Due to a tight bell-width, plays in high registers can be supported. The required lip tension is more likely to be achieved with this bore, an early fatigue due to strained tension and inevitable squeezing is avoided. The widths C, D and E are the most common widths. Enough space is provided for the lips, the cup depths 3 and 4 provide an excellent quality of tone for professional as well as for hobby musicians. Through the reflection on sound culture, great widths are requested again. Models belonging to the product lines G, H, I and J combine a good fit with a stylish sound.
These rim shapes partly originate from old, established rims and partly from rims which have been modified and improved in collaboration with highly qualified musicians over a long period.
The position of the various cup depths is indicated in the following illustration.
The width of all cups (e.g.: 18,22 mm, type H) is measured at 1,3 mm rim inwards.
