- A Lower Beta
Angle and increased cup depth
will cause a mouthpiece to have more cup volume and enhance the lower partials
in the sound.
- Lower beta angles are usually found in the design of flugelhorn mouthpieces.
- This angle of course must match all other aspects
of the design to achieve desired results.
- In the past a cup with a lower Beta
Angle was referred to as being more "V" shaped.
- A Higher Beta
Angle and less cup depth will
cause the mouthpiece to have less cup volume and may cause the mouthpiece to
speak more quickly due to the sound wave reflection back to the chops.
- Once again, this must match other design aspects.
- Old school definition would
be a more "C shaped cup".
