OVERVIEW

Get the Sommerville sound with his signature mouthpiece.

Medium-depth cup allows a full, sweet sound without sacrificing the ease of playing in the upper register. Allows excellent facility through the break area for all embouchures. Overall weight strikes a perfect balance between brilliance and depth of tone. Especially suited for solos, chamber music, and playing principal horn in a large symphony orchestra. Silver-plated.

James Sommerville is principal horn of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and has played in the Montreal Symphony, Toronto Symphony, Symphony Nova Scotia, and was solo horn of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. He has won the top prizes in major concours such as the Munich, Toulon, and CBC competitions.

Yamaha's Signature Series mouthpieces come after years of collaborating with hundreds of the world's best players at their R&D Ateliers. These players were unsatisfied with the commercial models out there and knew the Yamaha technicians would deliver exactly the tone and response they wanted. The demand for these mouthpieces has grown, so Yamaha decided to offer a select lineup of these mouthpieces. Each Signature Series mouthpiece is produced on a precise, computer-controlled lathe to guarantee each one is exactly the same as the one used by its namesake.
