    • Hello Ramses,

      Thank you for your comment. Your English is quite good, in fact much better than my Spanish! I have sent you an email to your email address with the response to your questions. We do have employees that speak Spanish if you want to email us at

      All the best,

    Please advise. I have been playing on an old Bob Reeves mouthpiece given to me some 30 plus years ago. The number markings are a large 2, followed by a small 2. followed by a large 4. I love this mouthpiece and the sound I get playing commercial gigs. However, I would like to get a warmer sound and not lose the range and response for when I play in the community bands and church jobs. I do like how the rim feels. Please recommend.


    • Hi Paul, Thanks for the comment. I’ve sent you an email, but in case you didn’t get it I’ll relay the same info here. What you have is a 42/D with a #2 backbore and a #4 shank. You might consider trying a 42/B or even our 42/C2J for a darker sound in your concert band setting. Feel free to call or email us if you have any other questions!

  3. I play a Schilke 13C4A hoping to get it’s equivalent in your mouthpiece….

    I have an older mouthpiece with the following markings. Large 3 followed by a small 4 and finally a large 5. I’m interested in how this compares to a newer model.

    • Hi Pat, You have an early 43/D with a #4 backbore and a #5 shank. We don’t offer the #4 backbore anymore but we can make one as a special order for you if you wanted a duplicate. Assuming there were no alterations done to the rim and cup, this is the same as the 43/D we make today. Feel free to contact us if you have more questions!

    I’m looking for a new flugel mouthpiece that’s similar to my monette B2 tpt. mouthpiece. I play a Yamaha YFH631 flugel. Any suggestions?

  6. Rick Rangno Says:

    I’ve got a real oddball Reeves mouthpiece I bought on the internet that needs deciphering! It’s marked X . . 4

    It’s quite shallow…S or SV according to my index finger đŸ™‚

    I have an unmarked Delrin rim that seems to fit it. I think its a 43 or 43.5 The back bore seems wide open to me.

    Can you shed any light on this?

    • Hi Rick,

      Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, we can’t tell what the mouthpiece is by what’s stamped. We have an X backbore and the 4 may be the shank size. If you want to send it out our way we’re happy to look at it for you!

      • Rick Rangno Says:

        Fantastic! I’ll ship it to you this week. I’m assuming I should send it to:

        25574 W. Rye Canyon Road
        Suite D
        Valencia, CA 91355

        Who should I send it in care of?


      • No need to put it to anyone’s attention, just include a note with your contact information so we know who’s mouthpiece it is!
