Andy's Music Outbound Shipping Time Estimate Map

The ROBERT TUCCI concept: “A comprehensive selection of mature and proven tuba mouthpieces designed by and for professionals. The designers are you, the musicians to whom we listen. With each ensuing production sequence all desired aspects of tonal color, response, dynamic and factual range are implemented into our products.”

  • Resistance : Moderate. 

Proven and widely accepted general purpose mouthpiece. Responsive, clear sound with an obvious center. Ideal for large-bore instruments when fast response is desired.

“German Orchestral Sound.” Popular for large Eb/F-tuba or small Bb/C tubas. Straight-wall, well-rounded, elongated cup combined with a large-bore and small shank opens up a new world of sound for musicians who perform on smaller tubas. The sound is full and noble, deeply resonant with substantial volume and projection. Overall balance and efficiency are excellent.

Shell weight and resistance are balanced for ease of execution.

  • Cup Diameter: 32.5 mm. Deep, pear-shaped cup.
  • Rim: 8.0 mm. Rounded inner and outer edges.
  • Bore: 8.3 mm.

RT-83

  • Cup Diameter: 32 mm. Long tapered funnel.
  • Rim: 7.5 mm. Moderately round rim.
  • Bore: 8.6 mm. 
  • Resistance: Moderate. 

This model offers comfortable resistance and ease of tone production for players who prefer a moderately wide cup for a melodic dark sound. The rim/cup configuration provides quick response and substantial volume enhanced by a rather large throat/backbore for resonance and efficiency. Works particularly well on medium-bore instruments. Ideal for young players as well as advanced who use large instruments.

Ideal for those who perform in large symphonic ensembles. Resistance is adjusted for control and efficiency. 

  • Also available heavy-shell configuration (RT88+).

SOUSAPOWER 3 & 4

Designed for marching horns where projection is paramount. These heavy-shell mouthpieces are open blowing and deeply resonant. Reduced pressure enables greater flow of air in a range where many mouthpieces choke up. Once the functional advantages are recognized, the upper middle and high registers of most instruments are more accessible, with a fine consistency of tone quality over a greater range. A unique balance between cup, shape, throat and backbore dimensions assuring excellent intonation. The player’s firm embouchure interacts and compliments the acoustical impedance generated in the instrument for optimal sound energy. High output results in efficiency and therefore ease of performance.
