B&H receiver help



  • Hi, I'm contemplating replacing the receiver on my Sovereign Studio because of the following; I have read that mouthpieces goes into those a little further. My mp sits 3/16" further in than let's say my Bach strad also. In any case the main slide sits about 5/8" + + out to be in tune. Is this cause to change it out ? if so, where would I start looking for a replacement receiver? gap on both horns look to be close with mp inserted...am I over complicating things?

    @tptguy Before you do anything drastic: What kind of mouthpiece are you using? Perhaps it's just the mp that does not suit the instrument. And which Bach Strad are you playing? Shepherd's Crook as well?

    If the gap is OK it just means the the receivers are different lengths. Nothing to get worked up about. Your current receiver is fine.



  • Thank you for your inputs.
    Barliman: I use a Giardinelli New York 6sv screw rim, my Bach is a '74 Stradivarius Lt trumpet, not a cornet ...The Sovereign is a Studio model trumpet , not a B&H sovereign cornet.

    Ivan: thank you for your usual insight into trumpeter's OCD
