3HX Signature Model- Similar to the 1HX but in the .66 (3 diameter) with the same powerful symphonic sound and efficiency, B style cup, #24 throat and choice of #3 or H24 backbore. 


Rim-The same feel as Steve’s early 1970’s 1X screw rim downsized the profile to .66.  The rim is fairly flat with somewhat sharp bite and most players find it comfortable with good endurance.  Not recommended for players that like a rounded rim.

Cup-This was redesigned and the discontinuities were removed by GR to provide a more even blow and improved intonation.

Backbore-GR redesigned and improved the 24 to meet Steve’s demands.  The discontinuities were removed providing an improved scale, attacks, and tone quality.  Also available with the GR#3 backbore.

Blank-Slightly heavier than other manufactures mouthpieces at the traditional length providing a beautiful huge sound that is stable at all volume levels.
