    We have a young tenor horn player in our band who desperately wants a coloured mouthpiece. Does anyone know where she can buy one.

    Our band are purchasing a mellophone one with the thought it may fit flugel/t horn, or at the very least look pretty. When they arrive will get back to you on that.

    Yes.

    I own a number of the Kelly mouthpieces and have been very impressed with them so far. The outstanding ones have been the cornet mouthpieces (modelled after the Wick 4B). I have done tests on these, comparing them with the original Wick mouthpieces and the difference is minimal. The person I was conducting these tests with (initials DW - work it out ;) ) was also very impressed and surprised with the sound they produced.

    A professional trombonist friend is now using a Kelly mouthpiece almost exclusively (he says it is more comfortable than his regular model) and I know a few tuba players who have been known to produce them for outdoor gigs.

    Yeah, the plastic mouthpieces are great. I use one for outdoor jobs and for marching band. They produce virtually the same sound as metal mouthpieces, but are more comfortable on your lips and look cool. They are also very reasonably priced.

    You are going to Butlins this weekend, so if they are available, one of the trade stands will have them.

    I got mine from one of the trade stands at the Europeans in Glasgow last year, but I cannot remember which one.

    See you tonight!!

    I doubt they will be at all, kelly are an american mouthpiece manufacturer and concentrate on orchestral instrument mouthpieces.

    I just took delivery of a couple of rather fetching bass ones. Nowhere in the accompanying literature does it mention tenor horns :shock: Maybe they aren't ever going to do one :shock: ;)


    MWAhahahahahahahaaaaaa!
