Trumpet - Luis Araya Print

"When I started using Warburton mouthpieces in 2004. I noticed that I didn’t have to "adapt" to the mouthpieces that much. They were a perfect fit for the situations I was looking for. The consistency of their numbering system makes it easier for the knowledgeable player to find what they need. Another reason why I trust in their products is that they are always finding ways to help players and students to improve. The P.E.T.E., Buzzard, etc. even products for woodwinds!!! It is comforting to know that they always want to improve themselves."
