You''ll notice that this design looks notably different from a real mega tone mouthpiece, but that was on purpose. The mouthpiece wasn't intended to replicate the look of that $100 price tag mouthpiece, but instead to match it in tone quality and feel. My design has the largest and fullest tone of any of the numerous mouthpieces I've printed. The difference between plastic and metal mouthpieces is of course present, as there is little brassy tone to this mouthpiece when used, but it eliminates any need to warm up the mouthpiece, and can be played on for longer with less fatigue on your lips. I hope you enjoy my tonal recreation of the Vincent Bach Mega Tone Trumpet 3C Mouthpiece!
Pics coming soon
Anything less than 0.15 mm should look fine, but 0.12 or less allows for better tone quality
100% and this is crucial to achieve optimal tone and volume
If your printer has a heated enclosure, then ABS will work fine. But, without that the mouthpiece will probably warp and won't fit in the lead pipe correctly and could fall out or create an airtight seal around the connection.
If you print this with the narrow end up, you need supports.
If you print this with the narrow end on the build plate, then you should use a raft but then you don't need supports
It evens out to abt the same amount of waste material, but either way you should sand the end that comes into contact with your face. Start with a medium grit sandpaper, then use a higher grit to get everything looking great.
BTW Please remix this to create different types of mega tone mouthpieces for trumpet and other instruments, I want this to help as many people as possible and let them play the way they want to play!
Thanks, and enjoy!
