JHS Odyssey ‘Premiere Brass Band’ range now equipped with Denis Wick mouthpieces
John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd. are pleased to announce that as from January 2014 their award winning Odyssey range is to become even better with the addition of original Denis Wick Classic Mouthpieces to selected models.
Denis Wick has been manufacturing mouthpieces since1968 and his designs have been used on some of the most high end instruments available, by world class players. Manufactured in the UK using the latest computer-controlled technology, to produce mouthpieces which are both consistently accurate and very comfortable to play. All the mouthpieces are hand-polished and ultra-sonically cleaned before being plated by state-of-the-art equipment designed to produce the best possible finishes.
Instruments in the Odyssey Premiere ‘Brass Band’ range will be supplied as standard with Denis Wick ‘Classic’ mouthpiece.
The original Classic design gives clarity, precision, and a very easily controlled, centred sound. It also adds more brilliance and richer upper overtones than the convex outer profiles of other designs. Very responsive and easy to play, the Classic has excellent flexibility with a rich tone.
Odyssey designer and Master Craftsman Peter Pollard said “What can I say about Denis Wick? A legend as a player and a great guy. British brass bands and Denis Wick mouthpieces are like apple pie and custard – you wouldn’t have one without the other. I am so happy that Denis Wick has allowed us to include his mouthpieces.”
Denis Wick said “The world of brass instruments is changing. With the Odyssey range John Hornby Skewes is giving us a series of quality instruments at affordable prices, and we at Denis Wick Products are pleased to be involved in this new enterprise”.
