Our mouthpiece lineup was developed with a few things in mind.
The Maelstrom mouthpiece system is the first fully modular mouthpiece system for the horn: Any of our shanks (which come in two interal tapers, two external tapers and both in a wide variety of bore sizes) can be coupled to any of our five cup models, which are offered in several materials. This allows a player to find his or her perfect match on just about any horn, from single to triple - from small to large bore.
The mouthpiece is perhaps the most personal part of our instrument, the coupler between player and instrument. Finding the correct mouthpiece for your needs no longer needs to be an expensive and painstaking process!
Quality and materials
All of our designs are precision made right here in Belgium. A specialised firm CNC produces our lineup to the most exact tolerances.
Our cups are offered in surgical grade stainless steel and silver plated brass (2018/6 revision).
Our shanks are produced in stainless steel only as we feel these parts benefit more from stainless for durability reasons, without changing the sound quality or playability.
Our rims are mainly produced in stainless steel, but occasionally you may find them available in silver plated brass or even plastics. We often have of our stainless steel rims coated with Titanium Nitride for a result that matches the feeling of gold plating, but is far more durable and fully bio-compatible (no allergies - ever).
We believe in a personal approach, do not hesitate to email us if you have any questions or comments about our products. We are happy to help.
Trial kits are available for a deposit. Please note that there may be a waiting period as many players inquire for a kit.
All of our stainless mouthpiece parts come with a 30-day trial period. Brass items are non-returnable.
A re-stocking fee can be applied if parts are not returned in original condition (scratches, dents, ..)
We recommend returning items as 'registered mail' only.
