French Horn Mouthpieces
Like the instruments themselves, French horn mouthpieces are made with different designs that are best suited to players of certain skill levels. Basic mouthpieces like the Blessing French Horn Mouthpiece or the Faxx French Horn Mouthpieces are shaped to make the embouchure as easy as possible, so they're fantastic choices for novice players. A more experienced French horn player, on the other hand, might choose a higher-end model designed for musicians with well-practiced technique, such as the Marcinkiewicz Pro-Line Concert Hall Series French Horn Mouthpiece or the Schilke French Horn Mouthpiece in Gold.
Another way that French horn mouthpieces differ from one another is how their shape affects the final tone of the instrument. It might even surprise you how much your sound can change with only a subtle difference in mouthpiece shape, let alone a dramatic one like that of the Denis Wick Paxman Series French Horn Mouthpiece in Silver. You can even modify the shape of a standard mouthpiece if you want to, by adding an accessory such as the Denis Wick French Horn Mouthpiece Booster.
Considering the role they play in shaping your instrument's tone from the ground up, it's safe to say that French horn mouthpieces are crucial decisions for any player. But that doesn't mean you have to be worried about making the right choice; after all, there is no right or wrong option. The best mouthpiece for someone else is probably not the best one for you, and vice-versa. So take a look through all the mouthpieces here and think about what will work for you - go with that approach, and you won't go wrong.
