Superchops Mouthpieces

Newest - Superchops 1ss and 1sb mouthpieces ~]

Call Jerry now to learn about the wonderful advances so many players have made with these two new mouthpieces: (718) 477-5803

#1 sellers since their introductions in spring of 2016. Both the 1ss and its shallower brother, the 1sb, were specifically designed by Jerry to help players struggling with chop problems. Both versions are intentionally small and unforgiving so they work like bold ‘stop signals’ to close down as soon as your proper embouchure starts to lose its grip. By keeping you centered these mouthpieces immediately improve power, pitch center, range, and endurance. Chop problems are immediately identified and avoided!

Having chop problems? Call Jerry now about the immediate improvements you can achieve through his advanced mouthpiece designs: (718) 477-5803

Specifications
• Diameter: similar to a Bach 20 (.582”, 19/32nds”, 15mm) 
• Cup shape: copy of extremely efficient Harry James double cup design
• Cup size on 1ss*: medium-shallow initial cup with shallow second cup for greatly improved range, power, and endurance
• Cup size on 1sb**: shallow initial cup with extra shallow second cup for maximum range, power, and endurance
• Rim: adapted from the great Charlie Shavers’ personal rim - wider and more rounded than New York Bach. Extremely comfortable in all ranges
• Throat: 29 for superior response and efficiency with less air for added endurance, increased security, and proper focus in the upper range
• Backbore: narrower but longer than a standard New York Bach for greatly improved intonation from low F# to double C and beyond
• Outer shape: triple contour for quickest response, dependable attack, and increased projection

·   *Superchops 1ss also available in cornet and flugelhorn versions

·   **Superchops 1sb has same diameter cup as 1ss model but 2 steps shallower. The result is added brilliance and even easier high register. Many professionals are adapting both models depending on the musical character. The 1sb is available for cornet as well as trumpet.

 

 

Superchops 8 "Symphonic" ~

Introduced in summer 2014, a fully balanced 'symphonic' design from Jerome Callet. Specially made for all trumpeters accustomed to a wide diameter like a Bach 1 1/2 C. The SC8 produces an exceptionally wide, fat and powerful tone while retaining the added endurance, superior intonation, and easy upper range which characterize all Callet mouthpieces.

Superchops 3 ~

Replaces the hugely successful Superchops 2. The SC3 uses the same cup and rim as the SC2, but moves to a 29 throat instead of the previous 27. After countless hours of testing, the result is a noticeably richer and more centered tone with even greater clarity and power. The immediate result is an unmatched fullness of tone with spot-on intonation from lowest register to above double high C. The SC3 provides a performance improvement that can be immediately heard OUT FRONT where it counts!

• Most perfect and even blow of any mouthpiece ever built in this all-purpose size range

Kris from London: "Wow! I recently picked up one of your SC-3 mouthpieces. Hands down it is the best mouthpiece I have ever played! From GR, Bach, Warburton, and  Monette, etc - I absolutely love the Superchops 3. I find your mouthpiece easier to play and my sound is just fantastic! Many thanks." 

Jamie H, from Ca: "I bought an SC3 from you a couple of years ago and use it daily. I tried Chris Jaudes' SC6 for a few minutes while we were out with Paul Anka's band the last couple of weeks and I want to try one!"

Nick S. from NY: "Received the SC3s mouthpiece and I hear a big difference from my Yamaha Bobby Shew lead mouthpiece. The high register is much fatter and crisper. My lip seems much more relaxed when I play. Before, I was exerting much more pressure. Now, the high register seems almost effortless to play. I love this mouthpiece! I'm retiring the Bobby Shew mouthpiece."

 

Superchops 3s ~

The SC3s is an exact copy of a standard SC3 but with a cup that is apx 2mm shallower. The SC3s is an exceptional mouthpiece for upper register work. Yet, it still retains a large and focused sound in the middle register. Players accustomed to a medium-small cup will cherish this mouthpiece for extremely efficient sound in all idioms. The SC3s is especially recommended for jazz, Latin, and R&B work.

 

Specifications for Superchops 3s mouthpiece
• Diameter: similar to a Bach 10 1/2 (.625", 40/64th", 15.9mm)
• Cup and rim: copy of Dominick Calicchio design
• Cup: shallow double cup, apx 2mm shallower than an SC3
• Rim: wider, more rounded, and extremely comfortable
• Throat: 29
• Backbore: smaller and longer than a standard New York Bach
• Traditional exterior shape
 

     

Superchops 4 ~  

For players seeking a slightly wider cup with an even wider sound than the SC3 while retaining most of the dense core, controlled focus, and superb projection of the SC3.

• Diameter: approximately .640", 41/64", 16.25mm, the diameter of a NY Bach 7C

• Cup and rim: copy of Dominick Calicchio design, medium-shallow double cup, apx 2.5mm more shallow than a Bach 7C

• Rim: wider, more rounded, and extremely comfortable
• Throat: 29
• Backbore: smaller and longer than a standard New York Bach
• Traditional exterior shape

• Also available in flugelhorn and cornet versions

Bjorn S. from Norway: I received the mouthpieces [SC 4 and SC6] yesterday and they are simply AMAZING!!! They really put my Schilke 6A4A to shame. Thanks again for great service and some amazing mouthpieces. 

 

 

 Superchops 6 ~

 For highly advanced and efficient players seeking an even more focused sound with the densest core and most powerful projection possible. The SC6 utilizes a diameter similar to an original NY Bach 7 but with a significantly shallower cup and much more comfortable rim to meet the power and range demands of current performance.

 • Diameter: Same as Superchops 4, approximately .640", 41/64", 16.25mm, the diameter of a NY Bach 7C
 • Very shallow double cup, apx 1.5mm shallower than the SC4, 29 throat, same longer backbore as the SC4
 • Same wide, exceptionally comfortable rim as Superchops 4
 • May require additional acclimation time for players not yet proficient on a very shallow cup

Update, May 2012: Extensive testing of this mouthpiece with a large number of highly advanced players has shown that the SC6, in the right hands, is both an outstanding mouthpiece and a superb embouchure tool. The very shallow cup requires a highly advanced embouchure. An under developed embouchure which blows the lips forward will result in premature bottoming-out. However, for those that are ready for a shallow cup the results are truly amazing. For these players, the sound is actually BIGGER than the already very large sound of the SC4. Ease and endurance in the upper range are exceptional with no loss in focus or richness. Numerous advanced lead players have found the magic in this mouthpiece. The sound of this mouthpiece is so big that it is even being used in professional orchestras in USA, Europe, Australia, Japan, Singapore and elsewhere.

Jamie H, from Ca: "I bought an SC3 from you a couple of years ago and use it daily. I tried Chris Jaudes' SC6 for a few minutes while we were out with Paul Anka's band the last couple of weeks and I want one!"
