Perantucci - The Right Response
Perantucci Mouthpieces offer many different models, each designed for a specific purpose. No need to compromise. Choose the Perantucci mouthpiece which best serve your individual needs.
Perantucci means technical leadership. Every model advances the art, sets new standards for others to reach.
The various models are based on the same philosophy of sound, response, balance and tonal presence.
