Perantucci Tuba Mouthpiece

Article code ETUBPT50
Daniel Perantoni and Robert Tucci began a cooperative effort in mouthpiece design and manufacturing in 1970. At that time the selection available was limited to a fewstandard models or something passed down by a teacher or colleague. Typical tuba mouthpiece cup diameters centered around 11⁄4 inches (31.5 Mm.), medium-size cups predominated.
Usable F-tuba mouthpieces were all but non existent.
The Perantucci PT-30 and PT-31, introduced in 1971, reflect the design philosophies of the time. The rims are slightly rounded on the outer edge while sharper on the inner. The cups are funnel-shaped and designed to produce a healthy well-centered sound. The throat bores give good control over the air stream and are large enough to provide substantial volume.
