The MAXIMUS Mellophone Mouthpiece®
NEW & IMPROVED
Imitated but never duplicated, the IYM design reflects recent improvements made by instrument manufacturers. Our pioneering technology remains at the forefront of design and superior performance.
Do it with style!
IYM Corp.'s distinctive Mellophone Mouthpiece was designed to be unique in look and feel and is specifically designed for the marching mellophone. Form and function were designed at the same time.
The truly heavy mass design of the IYM mouthpiece contibutes to effortless playing. It produces a rich, orchestral French Horn timbre with comfort and stability that has been so elusive until now. The IYM mellophone mouthpiece has excellent range, projection and articulation to deliver accurate note placement while maintaining a centered pitch in all registers. The mouthpiece is an important resource that contributes to the artistic excellence of arrangers and musicians.
The heavy weight design makes the horn more balanced and easier to carry. It also results in far fewer hand/carpal injuries so common with mellophone players, especially young women. These are important musical and physical advantages not possible with any other mellophone mouthpiece.
Made in the USA using the latest high-tech equipment to assure quality control.

IYM mouthpieces are plated with 2 to 4 times more silver than used by others companies. This means that you get a higher quality product with a surface which will last longer. When thin plating wears off, it exposes the player to the base metal which is not recommended as a playing surface. Better plating will provide better grip, a smoother surface for a longer time, will greatly reduce re-plating costs and the inconvenience of being without your mouthpiece for any length of time.
"This mouthpiece now makes it possible to treat the mellophone as a legitimate voice in the brass choir". - David Bertman - University of Houston; Director - Pride of Houston Cougar Band
"After 40 years of mellophones, we now have a mouthpiece which gives the horn dignity. Congratulations!". - John Simpson - Member, World Drum Corps Hall of Fame; Brass Instructor, Consultant
"We are very impressed with the sound it gives us". The Cavaliers - Rosemont, IL, DCI National Champions
"A MELLOPHONE MOUTHPIECE THAT SOLVES ALL PROBLEMS! The IYM mouthpiece is revolutionary in terms of design. It is a fantastic mouthpiece with the french horn/mellophone player in mind. It creates a dark sound that is perfectly suited for a full ensemble brass section and can provide brilliant projection for my screaming mellophone parts. The mouthpiece is solid and provides an amazing counter balance to the often front-heavy mellophone. Thank you IYM!" Key Poulan, Owner - Key Poulan Music
