    Hi guys,

    I bought a denis wick booster for my denis wick mouthpiece and it is now stuck on the mouthpiece. It also does not appear to fit correctly as there is a gap between the top of the booster and the rim of the mouthpiece

    Help!

    Thanks!:play:

    Have you contacted Denis Wick by email? You will probably receive a prompt response of friendly advice.

    Best wishes,

    Lloyd

    Take it to a tech. A mouthpiece puller will likely separate them.

    Seems you put a cornet mpc booster on a trumpet mpc -these boosters don't fit vice versa. Try soapy water mixed with valve oil, and then a rubber-padded screwdriver between the rim of the booster and the mpc.

    A butter knife can work pretty well.

    Techs have devices similar to mouthpiece pullers that make short work of such. All other methods I'd be looking at heavy rim scratches or shank crushes.

    The face of my framing hammer is knurled and its claw straighter than my finish hammer that also has a smooth face. Why worry? Use a 20 pound sledge and then throw both mouthpiece and booster in the trash as they'll now be worthless and you can quit worrying about them.
