Great Response... Lacks Depth and SustainOct 17, 2012
Great if you want a comfortable mouthpiece that you can hear all of your flaws and have a thinner sound. Perfect for kick your butt practicing.
Poor if you want a mouthpiece that allows for depth of sound and excellent sustain. If you want that, get the gold Shilke 51C4.
This mouthpiece is well made, sturdy and comfortable on your lips/embouchure, perfect for long, tiring gigs. It has fabulous response. With this mouthpiece, my notes speak noticeably cleaner and I even find it's easier to articulate. This is fabulous or the Wedding, Rock or Big Band gig. However, when compared with the Shilke 51C4, it lacks depth in tone and sustain. When I play with my gold shilke on my Shires custom horn, I a comfortable mouthpiece, with solid response, clean articulation, fabulous depth (dark/bright/whatever sound I'm going for) and excellent sustain. When compared to the Shilke, the Denis Wick just doesn't stack up. This was my first Denis Wick and I was excited to try it. I'm keeping the mouthpiece, because it is an excellent practice tool! I really hear everywhere my sound is lacking, something that the shilke may cover up with it's excellent sustain and depth. You've got to be tough skinned to use this mouthpiece though as your sound may depress you from time to time.
