Our Mouthpiece Range Expands With the LS Rim

We’ve added a new rim model to our offerings. The LS rim is a copy of the Laskey rim. Our goal was to make it easy for players who are accustomed to Laskey rims to try different cups, ours and those of other makers.

The LS is a medium width rim, with a rounded contour.  The LS75 inner edge and crown are virtually identical to our 7S rim, which is itself a copy of a Bach 7S. The only significant difference is in the wider contour on the outside of the 7S. This would not be felt by anyone except those using a very pronounced einsetzen embouchure.

We’ve made our rims in the same sizes as Laskey: 17 to 18.5mm, in .25mm steps and marked them with Laskey’s numbering system.  Our measurements are slightly smaller because we measure all our rims at .050″ down from the crown. Laskey’s are measured slightly higher (.035″) so they measure a little wider. Models 70 to 775 fit our standard cups and any cup with a 750-36 Giardinelli-compatible thread. The 80-85 rims fit our metric series and any PHC cup.
