| Schilke Mouthpiece Numbering SystemsThe Schilke method of mouthpiece labeling has been designed to assist the student, teacher, amateur and professional in selecting a mouthpiece to meet the needs of the player. All mouthpieces come with standard rim shapes, cup volumes, and backbores unless shown otherwise on the mouthpieces. This method enables the player to know the characteristics of their trumpet mouthpiece.Example: a trumpet mouthpiece using this method might be called 9C3c.Using this example, 9 refers to the CUP DIAMETER Smallest numbers have smallest diameters C E.
