Bore Size 0.330 (in) Bore Size 8.38 (mm) Cup Depth-Medium Deep
The Parker Helleberg has a medium large cup and is well-suited for orchestral and band playing. The tone is open, dark and clear with a focused fundamental core and projection. The dynamic control and stability of the low register makes the Parker Helleberg ideal for works like Prokofiev's Fifth Symphony, Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis and Grainger's Lincolnshire Posie. The intonation on the mouthpiece is very precise and consistent. The partials in all registers slot very well, making it an excellent mouthpiece for works like Wagner's Overture to Die Meistersinger and Introduction to Act III of Lohengrin.
