New York Collection French Horn "J"
Inner Diameter : .720" or 18.3mm
Bore Size : Available in either #4 or #6
Until the last 15 years or so, the J models were one of the very few French horn mouthpieces that were available in a large inner diameter. It was very popular among players who needed the more than ample vibrating room that this mouthpiece offered. On the surface of things, the cup is not as deep as a standard C Series cup, but the large inner diameter of this piece gives this mouthpiece an enormous amount of "overall volume". This, along with the large bore size, makes this a large piece in just about every sense. The rim is on the narrow side which also favors the fleshy lipped player.
