Griego - Griego-Alessi Large Bore Tenor Trombone Mouthpieces

Griego's primary objective in creating the Griego-Alessi line was to provide you with both a great mouthpiece as well as a great mouthpieceseries. Each series (1, 3, 4, 5, and 7) currently has six models (A, B, C, D, E, and F) with identical cup diameters and rim shapes. The differences between the mouthpieces in each series are in the cup depths and throat dimensions.

They have taken great care to keep the specifications of the Griego-Alessi mouthpieces exact and to Joseph Alessi's high standards. To that end, no alterations were made to the rim or cup dimensions of any mouthpieces produced for previous Alessi lines. They have, however, introduced the new 7 Series, which combines the cup diameter of Bach 5 mouthpieces with all the excellent qualities of the Griego-Alessi line.
