Standard Series
French Horn Mouthpieces

The Schilke Standard Series French Horn mouthpiece line was developed in collaboration with colleagues of Renold O. Schilke, who happened to be some of the world’s finest professional horn players. These models quickly became a standard among the horn community and continue to fulfill an important need for the everyday student to the educator and professional player. The rim and cup shapes provide a variety of options for the soloist, chamber or orchestral hornist.
