"The new mouthpieces I have from Giddings are superb, quality of construction is superior to any other brass mouthpiece I have tried, the feeling is so smooth I can play for hours without any problem. I very much like the quality of sound, deep and compact, with a great projection, everything I play seems easier" - Alessandro Fossi
"I nuovi bocchini che ho ricevuto da Giddings sono eccezionali, la qualita' di costruzione e' superiore rispetto a quella di qualsiasi altro bocchino in ottone che abbia mai provato, la lavorazione dell'acciaio e' talmente liscia e di alta precisione che potrei suonare per ore senza problemi di irritazione. Mi ha impressionato la qualita' del suono, compatto e profondo, ricco di armonici, con una grande proiezione. Tutto sembra piu' facile da suonare." - Alessandro Fossi
Alessandro Fossi Signature Tuba Mouthpieces
The contra bass tuba mouthpiece has an inner rim of 1.290 (32.75 mm) and a throat of .335 (8.5mm). With a deep funnel shaped cup and very comfortable semi round rim. The inner bite of the rim is relatively sharp giving control over articulations and clarity over the entire spectrum of the orchestral tubists rep. The larger throat combined with a moderate cup size provides a girth and width of sound unmatched by other mouthpieces.
The bass tuba piece has an inner rim of 1.268 (32.2 mm) inner rim diameter with a throat of .305 (7.75mm). With a medium deep bowl shape cup, and a relatively sharp inner bite on the rim as well. This mouthpiece creates a classic clean, pure, and light orchestral F tuba sound. A real F tuba mouthpiece with that brings a shimmer and excitement to the orchestral F tuba lit.
There is only one shank size for each piece the shank is in between Euro and Standard .528 (13.41 mm)
