The AM Mouthpieces line of mouthpieces are the culmination of many years of research and development.  Each mouthpieces is carefully handmade by Arnold Montgomery.  All together, there are over a dozen precision machining techniques and procedures in the development of an AM Mouthpiece. I begin with a solid bar of the finest virgin grain brass. Next, I carefully cut each mouthpiece to its optimal length. Each billet is then presicely machined on a manual mill and manual lathe.  After the boring , table and facing have been cut to specification I carefully mill out the window allowing the baffle and rails to take full shape. 

     After the chamber milling process, I  carefully rotate the new mouthpieces and craft the beak (or bite plate area).   The beak is milled to a radius that allows for an extremly comfortable feel, much like a hard rubber mouthpiece. Finally before handfinishing the piece ,  the bite plate pocket is cut and  filled with a food safe epoxy that is as impact resistant as it is asthetically appealing.  The mouthpieces are then engraved and prepared for plating.  Every AM Mouthpiece goes through a triple plating process that is as gorgeous as it is durable.   As each mouthpiece is HANDMADE to order please allow 3-4 weeks for shipping.  "Play the Difference."
