This is a large F/Eb Tuba mouthpiece, and the smallest CC/BBb tuba mouthpiece available. This mouthpiece is ideal for full size tubas in small to medium bands, and orchestras. Based on a Helleberg 7B, but with better pitch, articulation, and clarity of sound. Great for large F/Eb tuba excerpts in an orchestra or band. Rim is 1.26 and the throat is .318 in diameter, deep funnel shape cup. Matanuska is a strong, gusty, northeast wind which occasionally occurs during the winter in the vicinity of Palmer, Alaska.
