Uncommon Rims for Bb Trumpet

Uncommon Rims for Bb trumpet

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


These are some uncommon rims that aren't commonly recommended, but will work great for some players.


Rim/Cup Options:

*Cups for each rim are listed from shallow to deep


  • B5 Rim - Very similar in size to a conventional 3C, with a somewhat sharp 'bite' on the inside edge
    • B5 - older-style standard-depth cup with a somewhat funneled contour
    • B5 FL - deep V 'Flumpet' cup


  • B7F Rim - Very similar to the rim size of a convention 7C
    • B7F - standard-depth cup that is slightly smaller and more V-shaped than a conventional 7C
    • B7F FL - deep V 'Flumpet' cup


  • B8 Rim - comparable to the size of a conventional 10-1/2C
    • B8 - standard-depth cup
    • B8 FL - deep V 'Flumpet' cup


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.
