Griego Artist Large Bore Tenor Trombone

Griego Artist Our primary objective in creating the Griego Artist line was to provide you with both a great mouthpiece as well as a great mouthpiece series. Each series (1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7) currently has six models (A, B, C, D, E, and F) with identical cup diameters and rim shapes. The differences between the mouthpieces in each series are in the cup depths and throat dimensions.

What this means for you...

Once you have chosen the mouthpiece that best suits your playing, you should be able to move freely among the other mouthpieces in that series to find the optimal cup depths and throat dimensions to satisfy your musical requirements.

We have taken great care to keep the specifications of the original Griego Artist mouthpieces exact. To that end, no alterations were made to the rim or cup dimensions of any mouthpieces produced for previous lines. We have, however, introduced the new 6 & 7 Series, which combines the cup diameter of Bach 5 mouthpieces (for 7 series), and in between Bach 4 & 5 with the 6 series, with all the excellent qualities of the Griego-Artist line.
