Warburton trumpet tops
The Warburton system facilitates the brass player's choosing of a rim diameter, cup style and depth, with a backbore to best balance his/her sound and resistance. This choice ultimately affords one the most efficient mouthpiece with which to perform in any given playing situation. This two-piece system consists of fully interchangeable "TOP" sections and "BACKBORE" sections. Due to the multiplicity of demands placed upon the modern brass player, the various cup designs have been chosen for ability to produce the most desired sound in any playing idiom.
S - A shallow "bowl" shape. Preferred for lead playing and commercial work. Ideal for D, Eb and Piccolo trumpet. SV - Medium shallow "V" style cup. This is an exceptional "high-velocity" cup for Piccolo trumpet and all upper register work. M - Medium depth with a modified "V" style shape. Our M cups outsell all other models as they lend themselves well to all playing situations from jazz to symphonic. MC - Medium "bowl" shape. The MC cups could be the ultimate in bright symphonic sound! MD - Medium deep "bowl" shape cup that produces a rich, dark, symphonic sound. D - Deep "bowl" shape. This cup shape produces the fullest of symphonic sound. It is ideal for the cornet parts with its warm sound. XD - This extra deep "V" style cup was designed to give the traditional cornet sound. Herbert L. would be thrilled with this model.
