Anonymous asked: what French Horn mouthpiece do you use? I've been playing on the conn 7bw that came with my horn, but i'm not happy with it
My main piece is a Giardinelli Chambers cup in the #4 bore. It’s a company that used to be a standard for horn but no longer makes mpcs anymore. the bore is huge most people play the #8. My other piece if i’m playing small ensemble/chamber/solo pieces is an old 80’s version of the holton farkas medium cup solid german silver makes a huge difference the new ones aren’t made this way. But I’m looking into switching to a Denis wick/Paxman 5. I don’t know what your ability or equipment is but i usually reccommend to my students the laskey 75G to 70G, depending on age and lip size. and an easier to find alternative is the schilke 30.
