Trumpet - John Pederson - Lead Trumpet - Fargo/Moorhead Jazz Arts Group Print

"When I first tried a Warburton kit ten years ago, I was immediately impressed with the unlimited possibility of controlling the sound and resistance using the same cup diameter and the many choices of cups and back bores. I play lead trumpet in a weekly performing big band. I have tried many of the Warburton tops, but the one I recently came to love is the 4SV!! I use a KT and KT* back bore and this combination gives the biggest most secure total range I have ever experienced! It makes playing double A's as easy as playing high C!!! It speaks with authority but also can be shaded when necessary. I use the same 4SV top with a #7 and #9 back bores for more intimate club work that I am currently doing. Fellow musicians and music patrons have asked me recently if I bought a new horn and notice a more driving lead and a wonderful club horn sound. I say no......Warburton mouthpieces!! I used to play a lot more flugelhorn in the club setting, but the #7 and especially the #9 back bores offer me to play trumpet more and get a beautiful warm, almost cornet tone. I also use a Warburton 5FLX on my flugelhorn. It has a very deep cup, but alarming responsive and warm like velvet..... Terry Warburton has the best to offer any player, in any style of music, the greatest brass mouthpieces made today."
