The Rim is the most important component of our 5MM Modular Mouthpiece System. We recommend settling on one rim size and shape for use on your 5MM System. This allows your embouchure to remain consistent as you experiment with the wide variety of cup, throat and backbore sizes available.
5MM Rims are available in a wide range of diameters and shapes including:
original brand shapes (OEM)
combined features between brands
narrow, standard or wide width
1) Choose either a "Standard" OEM size OR select all 4 custom values 2) Rim "diameter" should match the Cup "diameter" value 3) Rim Shapes are available in all OEM or custom sizes by letting us know your requirements
Standard OEM Rim sizes B - Bach D - Wick S - Schilke W - Warburton Y - Yamaha
