DESCRIPTION: Model LM-11 is the newest model in the LOUD line. It is designed to give you maximum range AND maximum comfort. It works exceptionally well for classical OR jazz playing. The LM-11 was designed as a solo mouthpiece to accommodate the extreme demands of modern F tuba playing. However, it is extremely versatile, and it can be used as a primary BBb/CC tuba mouthpiece for those who prefer a narrower inner diameter. It is also another great choice as a beginner mouthpiece, due to the narrow inner diameter and the “comfort quotient”.

So many F tuba mouthpieces have sharp inner edges to compensate for the shortcomings of brass. But, with the outstanding response and flexibility factors now associated with stainless steel mouthpieces, you can have a crystal clear sound in the high register, and amazing response and flexibility, without a sharp inner edge.

The rim is actually NOT cushioned. In fact, it is quite flat in the center, but has a nice comfortable radius rolling into the cup.

Without question, if you are an F or EEb tuba player and you are looking for a super-comfortable extended high range mouthpiece with great intonation, great flexibility, and great response…. then, you’ve found it! If you are comparing this to the LM-15… The LM-11 is slightly wider and slightly deeper than the LM-15, which assists with the low range demands of solo tuba literature. The LM-15 is specifically designed for ONLY high range playing. The LM-11 is designed to move quickly from the low register into the upper register, and have an incredible singing-type sound in the high range.

This is my favorite solo tuba mouthpiece. PERIOD!
