B1 Mouthpieces for Bb trumpet

Classic Resonance & Prana Resonance (standard-weight & lightweight)


Rim Size Comparisons: Conventional 1C, 1, 1X, Schilke 18-24, and other similar rim sizes


The B1 size range contains the five largest rims that we make for trumpet. These rims vary mainly in their contours, which can also affect the sensation of size.


Rim Options:

  • B1-1 - Very large rim size, with a rounded contour that makes it feel even larger
  • B1-2 - Somewhat flat rim, comparable to a conventional 1X
  • B1-3 - The original Monette rim, designed in the mid 1980s
  • B1-4 - Fairly flat rim contour
  • B1-5 - The go-to rim for players accustomed to a conventional 1C

Classic & Prana Internal Configurations

  • Prana mouthpieces allow for the most resonant sound, most effortless playing, and most consistent pitch and timbre
  • Classic mouthpieces can feel more forgiving for players who tend to play with a tighter physical approach, or who are accustomed to a non-Monette mouthpiece



  • Mouthpieces with standard-depth or deeper cups are usually made in the standard-weight Resonance body.
  • Mouthpieces with shallower 'lead' cups are made in the lightweight Resonance LT body.
  • If you feel that you need a non-standard weight, just add a note to your order during checkout.


Plating & Finish:

Classic mouthpieces have a shiny, buffed 24k gold finish

Prana mouthpieces have a brushed 24k gold finish

  • Monette mouthpieces are made-to-order and usually will not be available as ready-made stock. The standard estimated wait time to have a trumpet mouthpiece made is approximately 6-8 weeks. Less common sizes are likely to involve a longer wait time. The exact wait time is unpredictable, as it is affected by many variables. We cannot guarantee a completion date or shipping date in advance. Thank you very much for your patience while you are waiting.
