Milashius Mouthpieces at ITF

Post by dwn8ve » Mon Jul 09, 2018 6:14 pm

Hello fellow chatters,

This past year I have been working on a line of trombone mouthpieces with mouthpiece maker, Bill Milashius. Some may recognize the name, Bill took over production of the Thayer Valves from Ed and Barbara.

I will be at the Festival as an attendee, and floating around and would certainly love to meet with anyone interested. We are very eager to get your thoughts on the mouthpieces.

Our trombone products will be at the Schmitt Music booth and available for trial. Updated website will follow and you can find us on Facebook as well.

We will soon be adding more mouthpieces to the current offerings. In the meantime, if there is something you would like to see, please let me know! In addition, we will soon be adding other brass instrument mouthpieces to the line and ultimately culminating in the production instruments. All of our products are made here in the USA at our shop in White Bear Lake, MN.

If you have any questions please let me know!

What sizes are the 1g and 0.5g? As in actual dimensions? I saw these on the schmitt trombone shop website and I'm curious.

The 1G has a 28.55mm inside rim diameter with a .318" throat. The .5G keeps the .318 throat, but is 29mm inside for the rim diameter.

No need to apologize. My name is Chris Allen. I am a trombonist living in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. I met Bill Milashius a few years ago when exploring a custom mouthpiece for myself. While we did not do anything then we reconnected and worked together to produce a more standardized line of trombone mouthpieces.
