Toby Oft Artist Series Mouthpieces

Toby Oft's classic mouthpiece line started from using the rim he had used for quite a while, and figuring out what cup depth gave him the ability to color the notes appropriately while maintaining his sound presence in the BSO.

The mouthpiece uses the light artist blank and has a medium depth cup. The Classic line uses larger throats than the newer Oft line. Many people loved these pieces so we're going to continue to produce them.

Griego-Oft Omega Lambda Series

The lambda series “λ” is the result of a 2 year project between Toby Oft and Christan Griego. Each model of the λ series has been tried and rigorously tested in the full range of solo and orchestral repertoire at the highest level. The priority of the λ series is to maintain a rich full sound in all tessitura that particularly soars in the upper register with easy, and especially clear articulation at all dynamic levels.

Griego Ωft λ 3.5 Mouthpiece

The λ 3.5 is the largest of the λ series. Although it does still grant easy access to the full range of the instrument, it excels in the low register with a rich full sound.

Griego Ωft λ 4 Mouthpiece

The λ 4 is slightly larger in diameter than the λ 4.5 and offers similar distinctive sound qualities and easy access to the extremes of upper and low registers. Because it is slightly larger than the λ 4.5 it does tend to blend more into the low brass ensemble texture.
