Griego - Classic Bass Trombone Mouthpieces

Griego has worked with a lot of bass trombonists and have noticed an interesting trend -- most of them play a mouthpiece one size larger than they should. If extra care is given when play testing, bass trombonists will be able to find a more effecient mouthpiece for their needs, one that maintains its characteristics in all registers. Griego offers many sizes to help you find that perfect mouthpiece.

Blanks available

This series of mouthpieces are available in three blanks:
- Light (Nouveau)
- Medium (New York)
- Heavy (Deco)

Model Features
Bass Model 2

Players who play a Bach 1.5 will love the feel of the Griego 2. Most bass trombone mouthpieces are unbalanced, which causes a wide array of sound widths and tonal colors throughout the different registers. We have paid very close attention to the balance between the cup, throat, and backbore of our mouthpieces. The end result in the 2 is a mouthpiece that maintains tonal color no matter the tessitura. The upper register maintains the core sound without becoming diffuse. The lower register is full with plenty of energy in the sound.

Cup Diameter: 1.075" or 27.30 mm
Throat: .291"
Bass Model 1.5

Flexibility and comfort are not to be sacrificed with this mouthpiece. The slightly flat rim in combination with the medium deep cup makes this a great solo type mouthpiece. The model 1.5 is also good for commercial and jazz playing.

Cup Diameter: 1.102" or 27.99 mm
Throat: .312"
Bass Model 1.25

Players who play a 58 and want something larger, but not the size of a 59 will love the feel of the Griego 1.25. Most bass trombone mouthpieces are unbalanced, which causes a wide array of sound widths and tonal colors throughout the different registers. We have paid very close attention to the balance between the cup, throat, and backbore of our mouthpieces. The end result is a mouthpiece that maintains tonal color no matter the tessitura. The upper register maintains the core sound without becoming diffuse. The lower register is full with plenty of energy in the sound.

Cup Diameter: 1.114" or 28.30 mm
Throat: .312"
Bass Model 1

Orchestral players who play a 59 or 1¼ will love the feel of the Griego 1. Most bass trombone mouthpieces are unbalanced, which causes a wide array of sound widths and tonal colors throughout the different registers. We have paid very close attention to the balance between the cup, throat, and backbore of our mouthpieces. The end result is a mouthpiece that maintains tonal color no matter the tessitura. The upper register maintains the core sound without becoming diffuse. The lower register is full with plenty of energy in the sound.

Cup Diameter: 1.118" or 28.40 mm
Throat: .315"
Bass Model .75

The .75 is ten thousandths larger than than the Griego 1 and ten thousandths smaller than the .5. By adding this model, we are making a conscious effort to provide every bass trombonist with the ideal mouthpiece.

Cup Diameter: 1.128" or 28.65 mm
Throat: .315"
Bass Model .5

Orchestral players who play a 60, 1, or larger mouthpieces will love the feel of the Griego .5. Most bass trombone mouthpieces are unbalanced, which causes a wide array of sound widths and tonal colors throughout the different registers. We have paid very close attention to the balance between the cup, throat, and backbore of our mouthpieces. The end result in the .5 is a larger mouthpiece that maintains tonal color no matter the tessitura. The upper register maintains the core sound without becoming diffuse. The lower register is full with plenty of energy in the sound. The larger cup size of the .5 allows the player to increase the size of the sound as they descend in range.

Cup Diameter: 1.138" or 28.91 mm
Throat: .318"
Bass Model .25

The Griego .25 is the largest bass mouthpiece we make. Although we can honestly say that this model has great response and an even sound in all registers, in reality this mouthpiece is for professionals that have a consistent practice schedule and are used to playing very large equipment. If a person is lacking in air support and embouchure development, the .25 will not be very forgiving.

Cup Diameter: 1.157" or 29.4 mm
Throat: .318"
