Helix Brass makes its custom mouthpieces out of food safe Delrin® POM.
FREE OF HARMFUL CHEMICALS
Helix Brass uses food safe POM that has passed international standards certifying it is safe for contact with food and drinking water. Because of its hardness and durability, it is frequently used to replace metal in food processing equipment. POM mouthpieces are especially ideal for musicians with allergies or metal sensitivities.
HARDER AND MORE SIMILAR TO BRASS
POM is harder and more rigid than Lexan®, giving it a similar feel and sound to a regular brass mouthpiece. It is extremely durable, and will not dent or break when dropped. The surface finish on Helix mouthpieces is designed to mimic the feel of gold, giving just the right amount of friction.
COMFORT WITHOUT SACRIFICING SOUND
POM does not get hot or cold like metal, making it the best choice for playing outdoors. A POM mouthpiece can increase your endurance as it is easier on your chops than brass, and will not irritate your lips like some metals.
