Stork C-Series French Horn Mouthpieces Stork has taken a great design and made it better. More options mean greater adaptability. The closer a mouthpiece comes to fitting your personal physiology, the greater the results you can expect to achieve. Options Choose among three inner diameter sizes, three different cup depths, 8 bore sizes, and two rim widths. For an explanation of the diameter, cup depth, bore, and rim designations, click "Read Spec's" below. Application If you have thinner lips, you'll probably want to go with 17 or 17.5mm. If you have thicker, fleshier lips the 18mm size will give you the room you've been looking for. Or . . . need the width but not the cup depth, no problem! And . . . if you want a shallower cup, but still need to get the air through, pick the bore size that's right for you. Stork Meyers Series French Horn Mouthpieces "The basic problem of finding a mouthpiece that both provides a ring to the sound in soft playing, yet does not break-up in extremely loud playing finds its solution here. This mouthpiece is virtually impossible to overblow and the sound is quite even throughout the ranges." "This mouthpiece has no traditional bowl, but rather curves in instead of down from the rim. This cup design, plus the slightly longer length of this mouthpiece, causes an M1 to feel like a conventional 4 or 5 bore and an M8 more like the conventional 12 bore. These mouthpieces simply do not take as much air to play as the same sized mouthpiece you are now using." Philip Myers Principal Horn, New York Philharmonic Stork Myers Horn Mouthpieces are used exclusively by the New York Philharmonic horn section. The Meyers model french horn mouthpiece is available in bore sizes #1 - #8 (5.8mm through 5.1mm). The cup diameter measures 16.7mm (for all models) and the rim is medium thin. Also, the cup is deep and conically shaped for all models. (Only the bore size is different from model to model). Stork Orval Series French Horn Mouthpieces "The mouthpiece that I have chosen and that I utilize is a compromise, like all mouthpieces must be. The cup is slightly rounded which gives a warm sonority and the balanced proportions between the cup depth and the bore size gives an ease of response in all registers." "For players with larger lips and teeth the 5 or 5 1/2 would be suggested. The 6 is more rarely used and the most frequently used is the 4 1/2."
