Brian Bowman Euphonium Mouthpieces

Griego-AlessiWe are excited to once again offer the Bowman Mouthpiece line. Previously, Griego Sound Inventions LLC had been making these mouthpieces for DEG. Now we're pleased to offer these under the Griego umbrella. You can order these mouthpieces directly from us, but you might want to purchase through your local Griego/Bowman dealer as they offer trial periods. It is a great time to support local retailers.

From Dr. Bowman...

The most important consideration in the development and production of the Brian Bowman (BB) series of mouthpieces is to unleash, attain and achieve a characteristic, deep and rich euphonium tone quality. Each of the mouthpieces is available in all three shank sizes:

  • Tenor trombone shank (small shank)
  • The “true euphonium” (intermediate/medium shank used by pre1973 Besson and Willson 2900)
  • Bass Trombone Shank (largest shank)

Bowman Model BB1

For the professional performer and serious student, this mouthpiece has a deep cup and large backbore particularly suited to the rich euphonium sound of today. Improved intonation and center of sound in both the upper and lower range are characteristics of this model.

Bowman Model BB2

Patterned after a traditional euphonium mouthpiece, the number 2 model has a "V" cup design, giving a full, responsive tone quality. not as deep as the number model, it still produces a characteristic euphonium sound and response.
