*** Please note that the provided measurements/specs are only useful when comparing Monette sizes to other Monette sizesMeasurements do not translate reliably between different makers. There are two main reasons for this:

        1. Differences in how and where measurements of curved mouthpiece surfaces are taken

       

        2. The significant degree to which differences in rim contour will affect the sensation of size

This is why we provide 'real world' size comparisons to some common non-Monette mouthpiece sizes. WE STRONGLY CAUTION YOU NOT TO CHOOSE A MOUTHPIECE SIZE BASED ON ANY NON-MONETTE SPECS. If you have questions about size equivalents, CLICK HERE to email our mouthpiece expert, or call our shop at 503-255-5552.
