Extremely clear high register with clean attacks. Ringing tone but not shrill. Excellent for high baroque music or extremely high technical passages.

MC - medium cup - medium-wide rim - cup ID16.81mm (.662") - cup OD 25.20mm (.992")- Throat 4.62mm (.182")
No extreme features. Round, ringing tone with a touch of velvet in all registers. Well suited for all-around symphony or solo playing. A very popular model.

MDC - medium-deep cup - medium-wide rim - cup ID 16.21mm (.638") - cup OD 24.33mm (.958") - throat 4.62mm (.182")
Sensitive yet comfortable. Good response in entire range. For players who desire a slightly darker tone than that of the SC or MC models. Slightly narrower rim than SC or MC models.

DC - deep cup - medium rim - cup ID 17.07mm (.672") - cup OD 24.64mm (.970") - throat 4.83mm (.190")
Produces very clean attacks and a large resonant but velvety tone. Popular with both high and low horn players because it plays well in all registers.

VDC - very deep cup - narrow rim - rim ID 16.71mm (.658") - rim OD 23.16mm (.912") - throat 5.23mm (.206")
Large teutonic tone. This basically dark tone is very helpful for the player who has a too-bright tone since it mellows the tone significantly. For the robust mature player.

XDC - extra-deep cup - medium-narrow rim - rim ID 16.94mm (.667") - rim OD 24.20mm (.953") - rim OD 5.23mm (.206")
Extremely deep cup and very large bore produces a rich, heroic tone. Superior mouthpiece for the player who wishes to play in the grand manner of the "Helden" horn players. Also produces a soft and mellow tone for the player who might have a naturally bright or shrill tone. The depth of this cup will mellow even the hardest, overly brilliant tone.
