Classical Trumpet Mouthpieces After Michael Saurle
The two originals from which these mouthpieces were made are by Michael Saurle (1801-1862), from Munich. We copied them at the suggestion of Jean-François Madeuf and his students at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. Both originals have a V-shaped cup, giving them a softer sound. The original of the KSE-4 is currently housed in the Edinburgh University Collection, and is well-suited to high playing, while the original from which the KSB-4 is based is housed in the Musikmuseum in Basel and is especially suited to low playing. The KSE-6 mouthpiece is based on the shape of the originals but has been proportionally reduced. All KS-series mouthpieces are intended for use on Classical trumpets.
