Eric Miyashiro

Eric Miyashiro and Gary Radtke
Eric Miyashiro is one of today's finest and most powerful trumpet players on the planet.  His mouthpiece of choice: 

GR Eric Miyashiro Signature Series.

"It was brutal day. I had a out door jazz festival gig that started early morning and a live TV show that was on the same night at at the Blue Note Tokyo. All and all, we had been playing all day long, but this shows you how (GR) saved my a$$ getting through this rough day ending with  live TV!  I could have held on to those double C's for days."

EM Studio Lead:

Cup diameter: 
.630"

Rim: 
This new GR rim designed specifically for Eric is supportive yet not restrictive and specifically designed for extreme comfort with crisp articulations. This contour which is designed to make the cup feel wider than .630"
This rim and alpha angle allows for lots of chop room for a massive sound.

Cup:
This is a new cup design for Eric. High compression featuring a huge sound full of overtones. Compression is built in the beta angle and throat entrance, allowing for a generous amount of chop room at the top of the cup. This high compression cup will take out sax players at 50 feet, but will feel comfortable and roomy. 

Backbore:
GR designed a brand new backbore for Eric! Our "T-76" Backbore is only available on the Miyashiro Signature Series and it features a big open sound and huge presence not found on competitor's smaller "lead" style mouthpieces.

.630"

Rim:
Miyashiro Signature Rim

Cup:

GR #2 backbore.

EM Classic #2 and Classic #3

.630"

Miyashiro Signature Rim

EM Signature Model  "FD" 

Same rim and cup diameter as the Studio Lead but with the GR "FD" cup.  This cup is a trumpet/flugelhorn hybrid cup designed to make your trumpet sound dark and almost flugel-like.  Ideal for gigs where you simply van not take your flugel, or if you want to get that "Chet" sound.
EM Piccolo Trumpet:

Cup Diameter:
.630"

Rim:
Miyashiro Signature Rim

Cup:
GR P-S cup with more chop room at the top of the cup.



EM Flugelhorn Model

The Eric Miyashiro flugelhorn models feature the same rim and feel as the EM Studio lead.
This makes switching from trumpet to flugel virtually seamless. 

FL* - Slightly deeper cup than the standard GR FL model.
This design feature provides a little more of that flugel "fluffiness" desired by many players, 
yet retains the accuracy and intonation for which GR Flugelhorn Mouthpieces are widely known.
