Yamaha Jim Self Signature Series Tuba Mouthpiece
"Jim Self's Signature Series mouthpiece embodies his years of experience playing all types of music in demanding situations. Jim doesn't like changing rims, so he uses the same mouthpiece on all his tubas. It is a medium-large rim that is comfortable to play for the many hours a day required in his work. The cup and backbore are rather large for the best combination of a good centered attack and a warm, alive sound. Jim says, ""I feel more accurate on the high notes than on any previous mouthpieces, and on the low ones too.""
