Light depth - you need strength in height
Tobias7731, 04.02.2015
I have always had problems with the response of sounds below the G. The Deniswick 4 mouthpiece helps by the felt extreme diameter and the perceived very large Kesseltief, so that my air flow is very little resistance opposed and the lips by the large diameter very freely Can vibrate. This will make the deep sounds easier and sound very full and beautiful.

After a few days, however, I still have problems in the higher positions (from c ") - the very free airflow leads me to quickly reach the end of my breathing - I have to inhale more frequently.

In addition, I need for the higher layers much more power in the lips. From g '' it becomes tight for me. At my Bach 12 I get without problems up to the c '' '. On the Wick 4 after a few days the a '' is almost inaccessible. After about 2 weeks it is better, but costs a lot of strength.

The mouthpiece is very nice and comfortable to attach, I would say, with very wide lips also clearly more pleasant than a 12 with a wide margin. I have noticed, however, that from about c. I will be tempted to exert a high pressure on my lips.

So far, the gain in the depth is weaker than the losses in the height that I experience, but I can improve my approach deeply on my other mouth by practicing with the Denis Wick 4.

Why a Dennis Wick?
Holger U., 16.10.2009
Hello,

Why is it worth to test a Dennis Wick mouthpiece?
I have been playing the trumpet choir for more than 30 years, 20 of them Waldhorn or better double horn. On Dennis Wick I became aware of a trombonist. He was very enthusiastic about the mouthpiece and the sound was also impressive. So testhalerm ordered and tested at Thomann. Today I only play it.

Attention: the first test irritates a really. Dennis Wick plays and feels different than anything else. Do not be discouraged. After an adaptation phase, you will also be convinced. The edge is uncomfortably wide but this gives you a better "endurance" when playing. The sound is voluminous and powerful.

Try it - it's worth it.
