Denis Wick's original design gives clarity, precision, and a very easily controlled, centered sound. It adds more brilliance and richer upper overtones than the convex outer profiles of other designs. The Classic design is very responsive and easy to play. It has excellent flexibility and a rich tone. The Classic range covers the complete range of brass instruments from soprano cornet to BBb tuba. Classic mouthpieces are currently available in silver plate.
