AR Resonance Mouthpieces

AR Resonance mouthpieces are meticulously made in Italy by Antonio Rapacciuolo. The design improves the way your instrument responds by focusing on the backbores. The two-piece system (top and backbore) offers a wide variety, making it easy to switch parameters to suit your musical needs. The goal is to make your equipment easy and consistent to play on so that you can focus on the important part: making music. You will experience quicker response, improved harmonics, and richer overtones. With AR Resonance you can finally find what you have been looking for! 

All cups have the same rim type. Apart from width, you adjust the backbore size and the curve of the cup going into the mouthpiece.
