Discover the CHI Brass JS Helleberg tuba mouthpiece, meticulously crafted in the USA as a precise replica of a mouthpiece once owned by renowned tubist Arnold Jacobs. This exceptional mouthpiece, originally modified by Jacobs himself for enhanced performance, features a rounded cup base and a less sharp rim. While Jacobs reserved many of his modified mouthpieces for students, this particular one remained in his personal collection which is a testament to its unique qualities.

Ideal for York type horns, this mouthpiece delivers a robust, resonant sound with pronounced fundamentals in the lower register and a vibrant, singing quality in the upper range. Its larger size sets it apart from other replicas available on the market, particularly those modeled after Jacobs' primary mouthpiece.

While historical records and photographs of Jacobs using this specific mouthpiece are unavailable, its reputation among those who experienced the original speaks volumes. If you're seeking a wider cup and a fuller sound, the CHI Brass JS Helleberg mouthpiece promises to meet your expectations.
