Denis Wick Aaron Tindall AT2 Ultra  Tuba Mouthpiece - silver plate
   This new mouthpiece designed by Aaron Tindall is the most popular of the range, and is designed for use in 5/4 CC tubas. It has a large cup which is a mixture of a funnel and a bowl with a large throat, and is slightly shallower than the AT1U. This mouthpiece has already proved a big hit with many leading American players. The rim is designed by Warren Deck and is one of the most comfortable on the market. It features just the right amount of width and bite to give the player a sense of comfort andstability. This mouthpiece produces a rich and vibrant sound with plenty of focus. There is a distinct `shelf' at the bottom of the cup which helps achieve a concentrated power that gives a sound that really projects. The shank has been very carefully engineered to fit all tubas with the standard `Euroshank'-type fitting. Original lead-pipes from Meinl-Weston and B & S were used in this process. The exact matching of mouthpiece and instrument leadpipe is vital to achieve the correct response from modern German tubas. Arron Tindall said `I feel that upon trying these new models, the performer will immediately notice an increased sense of improved articulation, intonation, greater endurance, and significantly enhanced power in both the high and low registers. Along with these comes an ease of playing accompanied by a richer, broader, truer sound that we believe is currently unmatched by many of the other competitors in today's market.'

•  Cup Diameter 32.8mm

Information

Designed with world renowned tuba artist, Aaron Tindall, Denis Wick is proud to introduce the Aaron Tindall signature Tuba Mouthpiece series. As described by Aaron Tindall, the new line is designed to provide an increased sense of improved articulation, intonation, greater endurance, and significantly enhanced power in both the high and low registers. Along with these comes an ease of playing accompanied by a richer, broader, and truer sound that we believe is currently unmatched by many of the other competitors in today’s market.

 Here is the full range:

AT1U is a very large funnel styled mouthpiece with straighter walls into the cup, and has a very large throat diameter at 9.53mm.   

 AT2U is a large funnel/bowl mixed style cup with the same large throat at 9.53 mm.    

 AT3U is a Helleberg styled mouthpiece that offers a real ease of playing in all registers on the contrabass tuba.

 AT4U is a Geib styled mouthpiece, and is ideal for rotor CC tubas and those looking to add an extra element of upper overtones to their playing.

 AT5U is a large F tuba mouthpiece very similar in design to the AT2U but w a smaller throat/tighter backbore. 

AT6U is a F tuba piece with a large funnel/bowl mixed style cup, medium sized throat.

AT7U is a medium cupped F tuba mouthpiece and is ideal for use in chamber/solo settings

AT8U is a shallow cupped F tuba mouthpiece that is ideal for all the extremes of solo playing

 

"I prefer to keep the same rim size, while altering the other aspects of the mouthpiece such as the cup, throat, venturi, and backbore. I am all about muscle memory as the way we do anything-it is ultimately how we do everything. With this in mind, I like to keep the rim size exactly the same whether I play CC or F tuba. I have a new line of tuba mouthpieces, the Aaron Tindall Ultra Series, launched now with Denis Wick. I designed each of the eight models in consultation with Warren Deck in order to meet the challenging variety of situations facing tubists today.

We feel that upon trying these new models, the performer will immediately notice an increased sense of improved articulation, intonation, greater endurance, and significantly enhanced power in both the high and low registers. Along with these comes an ease of playing accompanied by a richer, broader, truer sound that we believe is currently unmatched by many of the other competitors in today’s market."
