MOUTHPIECES

All our tenor mouthpieces have a full resonant sound that comes from the finest acoustic alloy with a special formula and aerodynamically internal design.
They are CNC machine faced and handcrafted.
These tenor mouthpiece designs are made in one-piece casting from brass for a full warmth and extraordinary resonance. Each design’s tonal character is truly superb.
The Johnshock mouthpieces have a large chamber, which makes you produce an unbelievably fat and more open sound

The Investment Casting technique we are using is an industrial grade process, not Plaster Mold Casting. The chief defect of plaster mold is its thermal conductivity is not good, which readily brings about a flaw in the shrinkage of casting, i.e. the consistency is inferior. The ring, jewelry and flute key almost belong to this category.
The advantage of cast size through a shell mold is stability and great precision. That is why Johnshock mouthpieces are made using investment casting of shell mold.
