GR Cornet Mouthpieces are being played in major brass bands the world over. GR's are the new standard in Cornet Mouthpieces today!

GR Cornet Mouthpiece Backbores are balanced with each cup volume to produce a characteristic cornet sound with precise intonation.
Choosing a GR Cornet Mouthpiece is quick and easy.
 
  • 1. Choose a rim contour.
GR Cornet contours are exactly the same as their trumpet mouthpiece counterparts to accommodate easy switching between horns.
 
  • 2. Choose a cup diameter.
 Standard GR Cornet cup diameters are the same as their trumpet mouthpiece counterparts. This makes switching between trumpet and cornet playing effortless.

  • 3. Choose a GR Cornet Cup from the options below.

Please note that all GR Cornet Mouthpieces are made to order.  
So if you play a 65 diameter, want the e rim, and want a #3 cup, your order would be a 65 Cornet #3.  
Just ask us if you have any questions.
