Robert Tucci RT-48+ Tuba Mouthpiece

The RT-48+ has a heavier shell compared to the RT-48. This gives it stronger projection and a darker sound. Response is very stable and benefits both the low and high Register.

Formerly named Perantucci mouthpieces, this Robert Tucci mouthpiece is a very popular size. The RT-48+ is based on the classic Helleberg concept yet wider than standard mouthpieces. The rim is enhanced for quick response and clarity. The sound is dark with a broad core. Excellent for medium-large and large-bore CC and BBb tubas.

Cup Diameter : 32,5 mm diameter. Deep, deep pear shaped cup.
Rim : Width 8 mm. Rounded inner and    outer edges.
Bore: 8,3 mm
Resistance : Moderate – open blowing.
Only the highest quality copper-based alloys and silver are good enough for Perantucci mouthpieces. Care in engineering and fully polished cups assure superb resonance, perfect response and finest tone quality
Any of our mouthpieces can be returned up to 30 days from the purchase date. To receive a full refund, the mouthpiece must be returned without scratches, dents or dings otherwise only a partial return will be given. We recommend you put scotch tape around the shank to prevent scratches if you are unsure if you will be keeping the mouthpiece.

    Robert Tucci RT 48+ tuba mouthpice

    Posted by Craig S. Hodnett on 30th Dec 2019

    I have tried several different mouthpieces since I purchased two new horns from Mack Brass this past August. I had settled on two. One was an early Arnold Jacobs mouthpiece I have owned for almost 30 years and the other was a Schilke Helleberg II. I prefered the Arnold Jacobs because of it's bowl depth and tonal quality. The SH-II was another excellent mouthpiece that fit my embouchure better, but didn't have the deeper color I prefer. Both mouthpieces had a more defined inner rim and a flatter lip. Although both worked well I wanted something a little rounder., not much, but a little rounder. on the rim. After some discussion with the Rep at Canadian Brass we decided that the RT - 48+ was going to be my best selection. It arrived today and I have been playing it on both of my horns (4/4+ and 3/4) for about an hour. I know it is an early appraisal but I love the mouthpiece. Dark, full round sound and comfortable on both horns. I cannot wait to try it within an ensemble next week after the holidays are behind us. I will still switch to the other mouthpieces depending on what group I am playing within, but The RT - 48+ will be my primary mouthpiece moving forward. As I gain more experience with this mouthpiece it maybe the only one I ever use moving forward.

    The best of both worlds

    I got this mouthpiece to replace my Perantucci PT70, better in the low-range, and my Conn-Helleberg, better in the high-range.

    From the first note I knew this was the mouthpiece for me. Low-range is fantastic. High-range is almost effortless. Consistent sound all the way through.
