Mouthpiece: Houser San Francisco #2 Cup/E 17.75mm rim – they are expensive.
For Students: I HIGHLY recommend you purchase and use a Laskey 75G mouthpiece. It is affordable, comfortable, and consistent on many different types of horns.
Horn: Englebert Schmid Eb Triple – they are expensive
For Students: A Conn 8D is the best way to start on the horn. A good one can last you from childhood through a budding career as a performer or teacher. Be sure to research a used “Vintage” model pre-1970.
