Leadpipes

Rath Trombones leadpipes

Choice of a trombone leadpipe is an important factor in determining the sound, and particularly the response of an instrument. Leadpipes are available for Michael Rath Custom trombones in four materials, yellow brass, bronze, nickel silver and sterling silver. All are available in three sizes.

The standard leadpipe for each trombone model is in brass, whilst nickel silver gives a more brilliant sound. Bronze and Sterling silver a darker, denser sound quality.

Extensive research has shown that, for most players, the standard taper leadpipe in brass is the best solution.

However in addition to our standard leadpipe, we also have leadpipe options based on the standard taper that are more focused , "A", or more open ,"B".

It is important to bear in mind that a leadpipe should also be a suitable match not only for your trombone but also for your mouthpiece.

For a large cup mouthpiece you may find that a leadpipe with a more open taper and feel is preferable.

A shallow cup may be better with a tighter more focused leadpipe. And if you are changing your mouthpiece, a change of leadpipe may also be appropriate.

Our leadpipes are available in yellow brass, bronze, nickel silver or Sterling silver.
