Hello,
At the moment, I am considering obtaining a Griego 5 large bore tenor trombone mouthpiece. There does not seem to be much specific comment on this on the internet. What are people's experiences of this mouthpiece?
Regarding sizes: Griego's specifications state that the cup is a bit deeper than a Bach 5G. However, how does the cup depth of the Griego 5 compare to the Schilke 51 (which I know)? Is it somewhere between the Bach and the Schilke in size?
Looking at photos, the rim seems to be semi-flat, with a sharp inner edge. Is this impression correct?
Thanks and best wishes,
Dr. M. Lomas.

I would agree in your assessment of the Griego cup depth being between a Bach and Schilke; the throat also does not open quite as much as a Schilke.  In general I find that if someone likes the feel of a Bach rim they will like the Griego feel as well.  Folks who play Griego tend to find them to be even across registers and dynamics, very responsive and with a fat core to the sound.  They are a consistent favorite with many of the players I work with!

I have a Griego 7 and I`ve found that the rim is incredibly comfortable. One of the the most comfortable I own
