From The H. N. White's Company's earliest days, they made the finest mouthpieces on the market and led the way in innovation and quality. The company made considerable leaps in raw material and important innovations such as the "Non-pressure" mouthpiece, concave and slanting rim mouthpieces.

This page is designed to show the first known year of production (based on my catalogs) and any changes that are made over the production cycle of the instruments including model numbers and any unique changes.

Introduction of the "Del Staigers' Model" and expansion of the concave and slanting rim mouthpieces.

Special note: The picture of these mouthpieces has been assembled from different points in the 1932 catalog.

 
1938 Complete "King" Catalog.

Notes:

New Cornet and Trumpet mouthpieces were introduced with new model numbers. These changes were the basis for the post war mouthpieces and some models were changed in the 50's and 60's.

Special note: The picture of these mouthpieces has been assembled from different points in the 1938 catalog.

 
The 1938 pictures are the mouthpieces and model numbers that The H. N. White Company used until the company was sold in 1965. Mouthpieces were not featured in catalogs from 1945-1965. It is safe to say that the more exotic mouthpieces were dropped from the King line after WWII.
