This innovative mouthpiece, for which a PCT patent and a Japan Utility Model Patent are filed, is designed for musical instruments with a tubular structure, such as flutes, to (i) direct the air stream towards the blow edge of the flute’s top opening to exercise easy sound production; and (ii) enable players to position their chin and cover or partially cover the top opening to vary the effect of sound production – the “pitch bending effect”. This makes pitch bending possible in musical instruments, like recorders and flutes.
