I've been playing Giddings and Webster exclusively since 2005. I've still yet to find any mouthpiece on the market that would make my job easier!
MMVI Signature Mouthpiece *Best Selling*
Alan Baer and Giddings and Webster have taken the original Signature Model mouthpiece and put a flatter narrower rim on it. In addition to this we have added a bit of mass around the throat of the mouthpiece, and we have made the mouthpiece out of 15-5 stainless steel. All of this combined makes a mouthpiece that is for folks who like a traditional flat rim with a sharper inner bite for their orchestral tuba playing needs. The 15-5 stainless steel is a high quality aerospace material that is harder than our regular 304 stainless steel mouthpieces.

Alan Baer Original F Tuba Mouthpiece

This ingenious design allows individuals to switch from one tuba to the next while retaining the same setup on the embouchure. The F Tuba mouthpiece has a shallower cup and smaller backbore that creates an ideal F Tuba voice. The Alan Baer Signature Model F Tuba mouthpiece is at home in a large orchestra and as a solo mouthpiece. Rim 1.295, throat .295
Alan Baer MMX F - Solo Stainless Steel Standard Shank
The Alan Baer MMX F solo piece has the same inner rim diameter as the other Baer pieces although the rim is just a little wider overall. The cup is shallower than the F Tuba piece, however the throat and backbore are very similar. Overall the solo piece is designed to have a slightly brighter sound but seamlessly transition to the other mouthpieces in the Baer lineup.
Alan Baer Beltane F - Solo Standard Shank
The Beltane was finished late in April, and Al and I were both enjoying family time outside around fires. As it turns out Beltane is held on 30 April, or halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. Bonfires are a key part of the festival marking the beginning of summer.
"Recently I was asked, 'Why would a tuba player need a solo mouthpiece?' My response was, because it's the right tool for the right job. No single piece of equipment will do everything the best. I'm expected to perform everything to the absolute best of my ability. If I'm fighting a piece of equipment in any way, it detracts from my performance, period. The new solo mouthpiece allows me to create a great cutting solo sound that will allow me to cut through an ensemble as well as allow me to play the extremes of the instrument with ease! This is a mouthpiece that allows me to create the sound that I need without having to do unnatural things with my chops that could eventually cause problems." -Alan Baer

I have known forever that brass mouthpieces have a lot of energy loss. Because of that I wanted to try out steel mouthpieces. I got a full set of the David Hickman line of mouthpieces. I played them for a little while and I loved the rim. It is so comfortable to play. I love the increase in dynamic range on both ends. They have some nice softs.
BTW I love the way my Hickman pieces play. Give steel a chance. They play really well.

While I have a clear understanding that there is no such thing as a “perfect” mouthpiece, the “D. Mirvil 5” is probably the closest thing to it. As an active performer and teacher who emphasizes the entire range of the trombone, the mouthpiece provides me the versatility to perform with a brilliant sound in the upper tessitura in orchestral settings, while also providing a rich and euphonious sound in the lower register, which would be expected from a bass trombonist. The mouthpiece also enables me to perform technical passages with ease and beautifies my lyrical playing with a vocalist’s touch.
