    I currently use a Dennis Wick Ultra SM4 and I am looking for a similar mouthpiece but which provides more higher register security. Is anyone able to help?

    Hi Benjamin

    For me the answer was Denis Wick Heritage 4ABL, which helped my higher register a lot!
    It is quite pricey, so I would advice you to try it out first if at all possible. You should not be alarmed by it's rather odd looking shape - it feels very comfortable.

    There was a general Heritage (not just euphoniums) thread a little while back. You could start there for more opinions.

    Cheers Erik

    Define high register?

    What is your current practice regime?

    Difficult without seeing/hearing you play but the issue maybe you and not your set up.....a mouthpiece is always a trade off range v endurance v flexibility etc

    Maybe try looking at something like the Remmington set of studies, designed to help the player build security/confidence in the upper register!

    I use a Shilke 52, which is far easier in the register that most area pieces seem to have the euph cadenza these days!
