SparxANyoneWanted - Sparx cornet mouthpieces
What size are you looking for?
Ideally a 3. Would also like a 4e. Might consider a 2.
These mouthpieces are expensive at over £100 so not so many people will have them "lying around".
I'm aware of that. But if you don't ask...
Pure curiosity, but what specifically makes you interested in these specifically?
The reviews, the cache, the price tag and me always looking for something better!
The only one I've played was a 7EX - it's a mouthpiece. The rim isn't quite to my taste, but otherwise a good mouthpiece - good, but not mind-shattering.
Be wary of change for changes sake.
I've a Sparx 2DV, that I'm not using at the mo and not too attached to, if you want to make me an offer I can't refuse
I play front row and think that the DV won't really suit such situations! Thanks for the offer though!
I have a 4E gold plated almost new £85 if you're still looking.
I'm pretty sure I have a 2 silver plated very little use £75.
Hi there, didn't get the notification of your post sorry! Do you stil have these?
Yes, I do...
I'll send you a pm
I wouldn't bother, i thought they were similar to playing on a trumpet mouthpiece. Unless you like trumpet mouthpieces?
Thanks to monody for an easy pleasant transaction.
I can confirm the sparx 2 is great!
My experience is that the 2 works well on a large bore cornet, but you need the 2DV on a tighter instrument or the articulation becomes difficult. I found that they improved my consistency and intonation. Their rounded rims may be problematic for people brought up on the very flat and sharp Wick rims.
Thanks Gordon, I agree. My experiences so far is that coupled with my Smith-Watkins K2 that the whole package is ultra efficient and that the intonation is better than I have ever had before.
I'm looking forward to the chance to play sop so I can test out the 4e!
