Sonata has been producing quality student brass and woodwind instruments for a number of years and is now a very well respected brand amongst music educators. Providing instruments that offer exceptional value for money, the range has been firmly established as a favourite for many teachers in the UK.
Their offering has now been extended into accessories with the launch of a new brass mouthpiece range. Offering considerable savings over their premium ‘branded’ equivalents they are a great choice for beginners. There are 8 in the range from Trumpet to Tuba with sizes based on popular Vincent Bach or Denis Wick equivalents.
There’s no doubt that these mouthpieces are perfect for getting started on a brass instrument and the cost saving makes them great value for money. The price of premium brand mouthpieces has increased considerably in recent years with a Denis Wick 4B Cornet mouthpiece now over £40 and a Vincent Bach 24AW Tuba over £80!
Whilst advanced / professional players will probably feel it worthwhile paying these higher prices, in my opinion it makes no sense to do so for a beginner. The Sonata’s are more than capable of supporting a players early development without breaking the bank.
