Monette Classic Trumpet Mouthpiece

Overview

Dave Monette has been designing mouthpieces since 1985 to do what no other mouthpiece has ever done; provide constant pitch center, regardless of how loud or soft, or how low or high a musician plays. This acoustical innovation improves every aspect of brass instrument performance - sound, response, intonation, and endurance.

 

Classic Series

These are the standard Monette mouthpieces we have been making since the 1980’s. They are now most often made in our new SLAP cup designs, but are also available in any previous rim and cup size we have ever made. They are “key specific,” meaning they are designed for use on only one key of trumpet. They are great for people who are new to Monette equipment. They are forgiving of some body tension and misalignment that is commonly left over from years of playing conventional mouthpieces. Players with unresolved tension and breathing issues usually feel comfortable immediately on our Classic mouthpieces, and notice improved sound quality and intonation. These mouthpieces help the player let go of old habis of playing tight, and can actually guide them to healthier, more efficient trumpet playing. Many players eventually upgrade from our Classsic mouthpieces to a Prana mouthpiece.


 

Three Different Weights

 

XLT

This weight mouthpiece is designed primarily for lead trumpet playing. Lighter weight = the brightest sound and a very easy extreme upper register. These are also the easiest for the player to hear behind the instrument when playing in extremely loud environments or “dead” rooms. 

 

LT

Our “middle” weight mouthpiece, these are popular with Broadway players who need stability in response and refined articulation while still being light enough for playing lead trumpet parts. This mouthpiece is heavy enough to help a lead player sound full and clear enough to pass for a classical sound while still allowing bright, brilliant and exciting high notes. 

 

STC

Often imitated but never duplicated! Since its introduction in 1987, this mouthpiece has become our most popular among classical and jazz players. The extra weight and special quality of metal used allows the players sound to be thick, rich, and full, while retaining brilliance and sparkle at all dynamics. The locked-in, secure response makes performance easier under extreme or stressful circumstances.


 

NEW MONETTE RESONANCE MOUTHPIECES!

 

 

 

 

These mouthpieces are the first improvement to our Classic STC-1 mouthpieces since they were introduced in 1987! And the first major improvement to our top of the line PRANA mouthpieces since they were introduced in 2002. This all-new design has taken three years and dozens of dozens of prototype variations to develop.

Resonance mouthpieces are made in both our CLASSIC and PRANA configurations, and are key-specific; made for instruments pitched in either Bb and C.

The CLASSIC version is more affordable, and more forgiving to play for players new to Monette equipment. They sound and feel like luxury sedans drive! The PRANA version is the best of the best, and sounds and feels more like a high performance sports car drives! Both have a more integrated, homogeneous sound, with a more resonant mix of overtones. They have a more seamless blend of lows, mids and highs than ever before.
