Mouthpiece extraction

Sometimes your mouthpiece can be stucked in the mouthpiece due to a little shock or a dirty or oxyded mouthpipe. Impossible to remove !

The main information is :

NEVER FORCE OR USE PLIERS

Using a plier can make a lot of damage.

You can see the damages here. But sometimes, it can be dramatic !

You always need to use a mouthpiece extractor, a special tool. If you don't own one, you can borrow this tool to your band director or professor, or even better, come to our workshop where we'll do that for you.

It's easy to use :

Positioning :

Place the extractor, and Tighten the plaques

Usage :

The two screws separate the elements. You need to alternate to keep parralelism

and finally, the mouthpiece will be removed

Result :

A "must to have" tool !
