The Mr. P 8.8 tuba mouthpiece by Potenza is designed by Daniel Perantoni, Professor of Music at the distinguished Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. Also known as Mr. P, Perantoni has been in the mouthpiece business for several decades and the 8.8 is the modern version of an earlier very successful design. The Mr. P Signature tuba mouthpieces have been engineered for better response, ease of playability, and a centered, focused sound.
The Mr. P 8.8 is the most popular large bowl shaped tuba mouthpiece that is especially designed to allow more facility and better response in the low register. The Geib style cup will allow more overtones to be emphasized while still emphasizing a strong fundamental. Mr. P has also designed a sharper rim for better flexibility and more overall weight for power.
