The Warburton System has provided me with all the diversification I could want in a mouthpiece. With the wide variety of cup shapes, depths and backbore sizes made available in the kit, I have been able to find a compatible match for any horn that I play.

I use the 2-M top on both the Bb and C trumpets. I use the number 10 backbore on my C trumpet. This improves the intonation on many of the notes like the E, Eb and high C, which have traditionally posed intonation problems on the C trumpet. I use the Number 6 backbore on my Bb for the commercial work that I do with the pops. This combination gives me enough width of sound with focus and resistance at the same time.

I feel that players can vastly improve the playing characteristics of their instruments by finding a compatible mouthpiece instead of spending hundreds of dollars modifying their instruments.

It is with great pleasure that I endorse the Warburton System and ' Bravo to the people at Warburton for having developed such a comprehensive mouthpiece system.
