Wick HeavyTop mouthpieces are designed to reduce the amount of vibration lost through the mouthpiece. Additional mass in key areas transfers the energy much more efficiently, resulting in improved projection and stability.

      The entire Denis Wick range of mouthpieces began with a mouthpiece conceived to suit the needs of the London Symphony trombone section playing in the unhelpful acoustic of the Royal Festival Hall in the 1960s. This original design (now the 4AL) has remained popular, but has generated many other types, each of which is made to fulfil a specific function. There is a characteristic clarity, warmth and beauty of sound which no other maker has been able to match. Intonation and flexibility have been brought to a state of perfection which has helped to create the highest standard of trombone playing ever, in all areas of activity.
