Classic Series Mouthpieces are great for people who are new to Monette equipment. They are forgiving of some body tension and misalignment that is commonly left over from years of playing conventional mouthpieces. Players with unresolved tension and breathing issues usually feel comfortable immediately on our Classic mouthpieces, and notice improved sound quality and intonation. These mouthpieces help the player let go of old habits of playing tight, and can actually guide them to healthier, more efficient trumpet playing. Many players eventually upgrade from our Classsic mouthpieces to a Prana mouthpiece.
