Trumpet - Jorge Alberto Giraldo Franco Print

"I've been using Warburton just for a few months, and so far has been an excellent experience.  The rim feels more comfortable than others.   Warburton mouthpieces allow me to dial in the resistance needed, achieve a big full and focused sound, and the tone color, technical efficiency, brightness I am looking for. I love it !!!"
