UMI 7c

Post by jawbone62 » Sat Aug 25, 2018 4:13 am

Does anyone know the exact dimensions of the UMI 7c? I can't find this info anywhere on line although I read that it is smaller than the Bach 7c and more like the Wick 12cs. Reason I ask is that I rather like it and would be interested in comparable...

My experience is that UMI mouthpieces are actually just a little LARGER than their equivalent Bach sizes. But I never tested a UMI 7C.

I played one. The rim felt about the same as most other 7c-labelled pieces. It's a bit narrower (the rim thickness is smaller), but the diameter is similar.

It is mellow for a 7c.

Isn't the shank on that one smaller than normal, to fit the 36H alto? Or is that the Conn 7C?

The Conn 7C is what came with my 36H.

Having tried various 7c size mouthpieces i have found that i personally like the Warburton 12M (with a T4 backbore) the best.

I have a CBK 1 1/4 H and a King 1 1/4 H which is exactly the same.

I have a CBK 1 1/4 H and a King 1 1/4 H which is exactly the same.
And I have a CKB 5G and a King 5G which appear to be identical.
