They are built with excellence in mind by someone who has an intimate knowledge of the needs of brass band cornet players requirements. Having the right mouthpiece to do the right job is essential for a player such as myself, and I have been thoroughly impressed with what the Sparx range has to offer.

The tonal quality produced is superb and gives the player and strong, rich, traditional brass band sound throughout the whole range. It is beautifully balanced and engineered, and this allows the player to perform in comfort, prolonging endurance and stamina.
