MF III - Classic Resonance LT, Prana Resonance LT, and Prana Resonance XLT

Size Comparison: Conventional 13A4a, Bobby Shew 'Lead,' etc.

After Maynard Ferguson had been using his Monette MF II mouthpiece for years, we set about creating a newer version for him. We wanted it to have an even more comfortable rim, even more efficient cup, and even bigger targets for greater efficiency an ease. The result was the MF III and it has been our #1 most popular smaller-diameter lead mouthpiece size since 2003. Unlike some of the historic non-Monette 'Maynard-style' mouthpieces, the MF III has a rim and cup design that almost any player will find to be comfortable and easy to play. If you like a comfortable rim, big but bright lead sound, easy upper register, and extremely consistent pitch and timbre, the MF III is a perfect choice.

The MF III is typically made in the lightweight Resonance LT body.

The MF III can also be made in the extra-lightweight Resonance XLT body (Prana configuration only) for players who prefer an even brighter lead sound.

Plating & Finish:
Classic Resonance mouthpieces have a shiny, buffed 24k gold finish
Prana Resonance mouthpieces have a brushed 24k gold finish


PriceFrom $295.00
  • 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. Unity mouthpieces for Bb and C trumpet are often available within a shorter wait time. Uncommon sizes can involve a longer wait time. The exact wait time is unpredictable, as it is affected by many variables. We cannot guarantee an exact completion date or shipping date in advance. Thank you very much for your patience while you are waiting for your mouthpiece to be made for you.
