There are two types of mouthpiece, large shank and small shank. How do I choose between them?

Last Update: 09/03/2010

Trombones are made with different bore sizes, so the decision on which shank to choose depends on the bore size of the instrument. Use a small shank mouthpiece for a small bore and a middle bore trombone, and use a large shank mouthpiece for large bore and bass trombone.
