 Flute mouthpiece - Patent 5435221
The present invention relates to a flute mouthpiece, and, more particularly, to a flute mouth-piece in which a sound cannot possibly be confined inside or become unclear, and with which a clear, vigorous, rich, and loud quality sound can be produced at all times.

Since the flute mouthpiece according to the present invention has the above-described structure, the generation of sound is not hindered by an irregular air flow and the straight travel property of a sound does not deteriorate due to interference by a sound wave.

 Selecting a Mouthpiece
One should bear in mind that the mouthpiece which comes with an instrument may or may not be suitable for a particular player.
In selecting the best mouthpiece one needs to consider the player's teeth, jaw, and shape of the lips (thickness and width), as well as the strength of the embouchure, the desired tone quality, ease of playing the upper and lower range, endurance, intonation, and the type of playing done most of the time.
Mouthpiece pressure reduces endurance because the blood circulation in the lips is cut off and lip swelling results.
