At Robinson Brass we take pride in offering a tailor made experience to any musician demanding custom designed mouthpieces to fit their needs.
As our mouthpieces are designed, developed, machined and hand polished and finished in-house, we ensure every step is of the highest standard. The only step we don't currently complete in-house is the plating!
-The smallest of changes to a mouthpiece can make a big difference to the experienced player and unfortunately sometimes that means a pre-existing mouthpiece on the market may suit you well but doesn't quite fit you perfectly. This is where custom made mouthpieces come into play.
-Working closely with you to examine your current/favourite piece and discussing your playing situations and styles, what feels right or wrong and any direct changes you'd like to make.
-All custom pieces are designed around our own Robinson 'Blank' however the overall weight can be adjusted if a lighter or heavier blank is requested.
-A copy is requested when you've already found 'the one' special mouthpiece that you love and wish to have an exact replica. Usually this is requested when slight changes are desired, however, a copy can be exact either within the body of the standard Robinson 'Blank' or within a body which also mimics the outer form of a mouthpiece. -Coming soon-
If you play a historic instrument, but find period mouthpieces unsuitable, we can also provide a mouthpiece with various cup/backbore/throat/rim designs with a typical 'Blank' which, from the outside, looks to be period but with the benefit of being a much more comfortable mouthpiece to perform on. See the 'Historic' page for more info.
We can offer small production runs off;
-Machined blanks to your outer form design and shank taper. Ready for machining & drilling cup/rim/backbore
-Fully machined backbore, cup and rim. Ready for polishing & plating
-As above, Engraved with brand name, model, number. Ready for polishing & plating
-All of the above plus polished and plated in Silver or Gold. Ready for Resale
Please get in contact to discuss your needs, prices vary for a one-time setup/design cost, and is dependent on the extent of machining completed before shipping to you. Visit our 'Contact' page.
