Sparxmusic – The world's finest cornet mouthpieces

Welcome to

This web site has been developed to introduce you to the SPARX CORNET MOUTHPIECE.

Ted Sparks is a Brasswind Musical Instrument Technician based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Before developing the Sparx Cornet Mouthpiece, Ted played in the “Canadian Staff Band” for fourteen years. After an eleven year stint on the solo cornet bench, he spent his final three years as the band’s soprano cornetist. Today Ted performs with Toronto’s Hannaford Street Silver Band and a wide variety of ensembles as a trumpet player and cornetist. Ted’s knowledge of Brass Instruments and interest in Brass Bands has been the driving force behind this joint project.

''..both better-sounding AND easier to play than any cornet mouthpiece I have tried. It has the warmth to blend in a brass band, coupled with the breadth and presence needed to play in an orchestra.''

We are proud of the testimonials we receive from our many illustrious Sparx Players, among whom are found world class soloists, elite orchestral musicians, and brass band superstars.
