GR Cornet Cups
#1. This versatile
cornet cup is brighter and almost trumpet like. The throat entrance is more open
than a standard Bb mouthpiece. This cup is used for marching band, brass band Eb
soprano work, Dixie/jazz and demanding solo work. The upper register is
efficient and brilliant. Medium Low Alpha angle.
#2. This cornet cup is
an excellent compromise with crisp articulations and an excellent upper
register. This cup has a larger throat entrance than the GR #1 cornet cup and
will blow more open. Our most popular cup for solo work, brass band Eb soprano work, and
Dixie/jazz work. The upper register is very efficient, crisp, and clear. Medium
Low Alpha Angle.
#3. Our most popular
Excellent characteristic sound without sacrificing range or flexibilities. A
deeper cup and more open throat entrance than the GR #1 or #2 Cornet cups. Used for all
musical situations. Medium Alpha Angle.
#5. Big sound that can
be mellow or loud. This cup is not as deep as the GR #3 Cornet cup, although,
the throat entrance is more open. This cup can tolerate a lot of lip engagement.
Above high C can be more work. An excellent brass band mouthpiece. Medium Alpha
#6. Very big and
powerful with the ability to color the sound to play soft and pretty. Ideal for
brass bands and solo cornet work. This mouthpiece has the same depth as the GR
#3 Cornet cup but the throat entrance is more open like the GR Cornet #5. This
mouthpiece has a unique cup shape and is a compromise between the traditional C
cup shape and deep V cup shape. Requires strong chops for the upper register.
The sound is a full beautiful mellow timbre with good intonation throughout the
horn. Medium Alpha Angle with ample chop room.
#7. Big sound that can
be mellow or loud. This cup is deeper than the GR #3 and #6 Cornet cups,
furthermore, the throat entrance is more open. This cup can tolerate a lot of
lip engagement. The cup volume is massive and similar to the older traditional
cornet cups, although, GR has put the math to this cup and corrected many of the
difficult playing issues. This cup features improved intonation, accuracy, upper
register and articulation over other traditional designs popular today without a
compromise to sound. Above high C can be more work. Very popular with the
"British" style brass band
players. The throat bore is larger than GR Cornet Cups #1-#6. Medium Alpha Angle
with ample chop room.
#8. You asked for
big...You got it! This very large volume cup has proven to be very popular with
the "British Style" Brass Band players. The #8 cup will provide the strong
player a huge traditional Brass Band sound with power to spare. Larger than the
#7 cup with improved intonation, slotting, and accuracy over "traditional" Brass
Band mouthpieces of the past. This model can be more work but the benefits of
the larger cup volume will be worth the effort for strong players. Medium Alpha
Angle with ample chop room.
