The Denis Wick/Paxman range of mouthpieces has been developed with London Symphony Orchestra principal horn Tim Jones, and uses the ideas underlying the Denis Wick Heritage range. This principle is based on a late 19th century design, where the cup wall is very thin near the mouthpiece rim, combined with the new idea to have substantially more mass lower down the cup.
The results are amazing. The mouthpieces have an immediate, easy response, particularly in the high register, a smooth legato and a sound rich in overtones over the whole range. The 6 is a good all-round mouthpiece. It has a rich and full sound with excellent flexibility.
