Brass Mouthpiece Truing Tools
To get a sense for how brass mouthpiece truing tools work, all you have to do is take a look at one. So go ahead and check out an example - how about the DEG Mouthpiece Trueing Tool? You'll see that it looks kind of like a stretched-out rounded cone, and its job is to straighten the mouthpiece shaft. If you drop your mouthpiece and put a dent in it, or if (heaven forbid) it gets stepped on and goes crooked, a simple twist of this tool is all it takes to straighten things back out. With careful use, it's the perfect way to insure your mouthpiece against those little accidents in life, not to mention restoring battered old mouthpieces to playing condition.
DEG's tool fits all brass instruments, from French horn to tuba and everywhere in between - and it's a lot more affordable than a replacement mouthpiece! It's a perfect example of the simple but effective design of brass mouthpiece truing tools, not to mention a brass player's best friend in the event that something should happen to his or her mouthpiece. Don't be caught unprepared! With this or any other brass mouthpiece truing tool you find here, you'll be ready for any fate that might befall your favorite mouthpiece.
