Phil Parker Ltd are delighted to announce the arrival of their new range of Trumpet Mouthpieces. The experienced staff have collaborated to develop a straight forward range of mouthpieces designed to make selection easy. Picking the best bits from lots of other mouthpieces, the shape, rims, cups, throats and backbores have all been put together to make each piece ideal for its style.

The Range comprises four Trumpet Mouthpieces Symphony, Soloist, Studio & Lead which are complemented by a cornet and flugel mouthpiece. They are all made in Europe to the highest standards and finished in silver plate.

The Lead takes things a bit further than the Studio and is slightly smaller and shallower. It has been designed for the player looking to play lead trumpet in big band and show playing. The flat rim and sharp bite aid endurance and range and it produces the ideal hot lead sound this type of player is seeking.
