The Vast majority of mouthpieces are made from Leaded Brass, that is plated with silver or gold. Leaded brass is used because it is easy to machine, NOT BECAUSE IT PLAYS GREAT! If your mouthpiece has worn out plating you have lead exposure. There is no known level of lead exposure that is considered safe. So why risk it, get a Giddings Mouthpiece and rest assured you will not have exposure to harmful heavy metals.
If you are still playing a silver or gold plated brass mouthpiece here is what you have potential exposure too.
*Lead, if your plating is worn through you have exposure to harmful lead.
* Zinc, raw brass or poorly plated mouthpieces can cause nasty zinc burns.
* Nickel, poor silver plating leaches nickel out of the material causing contact dermatitis.
Why risk it when you have an affordable, great playing, hypoallergenic option. We have been making our mouthpieces commercially available for over 16 years. We have solved nasty contact dermatitis issues for 100's and 100's of players from amateur to pro.
Solid Titanium and Surgical grade Stainless Steel!!! Designed for professional musicians, and made by a master machinist. All of our mouthpieces are made on CNC lathes that hold tolerances of .0005. This manufacturing along with the use of robotics to polish our mouthpieces means our products are consistent and absolutely perfect from mouthpiece to mouthpiece.
Our mouthpieces are made from the finest surgical Stainless Steel and Titanium.
These Materials are unique and far superior to brass. Unlike brass, the use of Stainless steel and Titanium means mouthpieces aren't silver-plated. Brass mouthpieces can be very harmful when their thin silver plating wears through. This can lead to brass infection, and possible brass poisoning. Surgical Stainless Steel and Titanium are proven safe materials that are used from medical applications to food preparation - and now instrument mouthpieces! Stainless Steel and Titanium project vibrations into the instrument giving the player more control, making it easier to produce the sound the player desires.
Mouthpiece weight does make a difference in playability.
Super heavy weight and Ultra-Light weight mouthpieces change instrument response. With Titanium and Stainless Steel, players can fine tune their mouthpiece weight to their individual playing needs. Titanium is about one third the weight of Stainless Steel, whereas Stainless Steel is similar in weight to traditional brass mouthpieces. The right amount of weight also improves how rapidly pitch can center.
Comfortable rim design benefits blood flow to lips
Our rims are more comfortable than what is available on most mouthpieces today. Our rims increase articulation, quickness of tone and focus, flexibility, and also comfort. GW rims encourage players to play with less force on their lips, resulting in increased lip flexibility and blood circulation to the crucial lip muscles while playing. Good circulation keeps your lip muscles in top shape.
Pulling less is simply better for improving tone, flexibility, range, your buzz, and comfort!
Cup, Throat, and Back Bore design
The cup, throat, and back-bore designs of our mouthpiece are designed to have every radius and angle flow into the next. From the rim to the end of the shank, 'smooth' was the ultimate goal both inside and out. The result is a mouthpiece that out performs traditional mouthpieces in every way.
Shank end improvement
A largely overlooked aspect of mouthpiece design is in the end of the shank. Often times the shank ends with a flat thick edge. This thick end creates a problem most players are unaware of while playing. A mouthpiece not only sends the vibration into the instrument, but the player is constantly adjusting based on vibrations reflected back to their lips. Any bumps, edges, or rough spots inside an instrument or mouthpiece can drastically change how an instrument plays, and how an instrument sends feedback to the player. Our shanks end with a very sharp edge. This makes the transition from mouthpiece to instrument lead pipe smooth, and feedback from the instrument to the lips more complete.
