C4S S2 - Prana Resonance & Classic Resonance
Size Comparison: modern 1-1/2C, Mt. Vernon-era Bach 3C
The original Monette C4 from the 1980s had a somewhat flat rim contour. When our friend, legendary jazz and studio player Lew Soloff asked as to create a mouthpiece for him with the same type of rim as his favorite Mt. Vernon-era Bach 3C, the original B4S was the result - with the letter S indicating that the B4S was the 'Soloff' mouthpiece in the B4 size. The B4S rim was not as flat as the B4 rim, with less bite on the inside edge. The B4S quickly became an extremely popular mouthpiece for players who are accustomed to the size of a modern 1-1/2C. When its cup was modernized in the mid 2000s, the B4S became the B4S S2.
The C trumpet version of the original B4S was called the C4S and it quickly became one of the most popular options for C trumpet. When its cup was modernized it became the C4S S2 and quickly became our most popular 1-1/2C equivalent Resonance mouthpiece for C trumpet.
The C4S S2 is made in the standard-weight Resonance body.
