March 2018: Good news! Atkinson Brass has purchased the Moosewood line and is producing them in Burbank, California. We have an an order of mouthpieces arriving in mid-March.
These are threaded mouthpiece cups designed by Tom Greer, master mouthpiece maker of Moosewood mouthpieces and currently made by Atkinson Brass Co of Burbank. These cups are designed to properly mate with Moosewood rims. This two-piece mouthpiece system allows you to keep the same embouchure and rim feel while adjusting the cup size to tailor your horn's response to your needs and your comfort.
*Note: Moosewood horn cups and rims are sold separately.
