Super mouthpiece. However, it requires the integration phase

Andronico, 18.12.2011
I have been playing the Wick Steven Mead SM3 mouthpiece for more than 10 years and have now moved to the SM3 Ultra. Compared to the SM3, the Ultra is not only heavier (more mass) built, also the edge is slightly more angular, so the mouthpiece feels somewhat smaller (which is a good thing with the rather big mouthpiece). At first this edge felt unfamiliar. But after an adaptation phase of a few days I had become accustomed to the edge. I would recommend giving the mouth a few days before deciding whether or not to.

The mouthpiece is relatively large (comparable to a bass-trombone mouthpiece), funnel-shaped (most dimensions are identical to the SM3) and has a large bore so that you really get a lot of air relaxed into the instrument, resulting in a good, soft sound Is indispensable. Compared to the SM3, the Ultra in my experience sounds more direct, more centered and somewhat fuller, the response is more accurate and the intonation better.

Steven Mead himself plays this mouthpiece (together with a Besson Prestige Euphonium, which I also play.) In this combination the mouthpiece fits perfectly. It requires some perseverance (so you pay a price for the great sound you get, which can be a bit frustrating at first). Beginning and changing from the tenorposaune I would not recommend the SM 3 Ultra. I have a SM4 after the change from the trombone for about one year (which is much smaller). Also the SM 3.5, which lies in between can be a good compromise.

But if the power is there and also the will and the possibility to embark completely on the euphonium and its requirements (also quite different air conduction as with the trombone), then one can achieve with the SM 3 Ultra in my opinion really fantastic results.

Full and dark

schwein85, 13.10.2012
The Denis Wick 5880 SM3U nozzle is one of the best nozzles made especially for Bombardino / Euphonium on the market, with the help of the best euphonium soloist Steven Mead in the world.

Personally, I notice a great sonority similar to the model 5880 SM3 but with an even darker tone than the aforementioned. This is due to its great cup and its coating, its great granillo and cane. This allows the passage of a large amount of air that through the instrument translates into a larger, full and deep sound as well as a dark sound typical of the bombardier. It is also true that it offers greater resistance in the high notes but against a great sound in the low register.

As for the comfort of the nozzle, its main ring is a little more rounded than the 5880 SM models. It is comfortable in support, it allows to flow a great amount of air by its glass of greater depth (which implies to throw more air).
