We spent a day play testing lots of existing modes, measuring my lips and discussing what I felt that I needed. With all the information he gathered from this experience, GR put his magic numbers into his computer program. This program contains all the secret mathematics which GR has developed over the past 25 years and is one of many reasons why these are the world's best trumpet mouthpieces. After configuring the parameters of the mouthpiece in the software, they were transferred to the lathe for cutting.
GR cut me the first-ever T1.0 and the first time I played it I was like ... "WOW... what is this voodoo magic??!". Perfect, one take! I really didn't go to GR feeling I had any issues with my previous gear, but how wrong I was. I left GR's workshop with more dynamic range, better articulation, I could play higher, lower and the middle register had never felt so secure. Thank you so much, Gary, for making trumpet playing that little bit easier for me, I enjoy playing more now than I ever have.****Please note: For sales in the U.K. and the E.U., please contact Louis through his website:
