At PATRICK Mouthpieces, you will find trumpet mouthpieces that have the same inner design as the former LOUD trumpet line and you will also see a great increase in the model line-up and services offered by PATRICK Mouthpieces. Steve plays custom trumpet mouthpieces of his on design. Steve relates, "The commercial side of our trumpet line is very different than anything currently on the market. It harkens back to the golden age of trumpet where everybody had a big fat huge bright sound. It takes design cues from the early Jet-Tones, but with some fairly substantial differences. The rims are fairly wide and "cushy". This makes a comfortable setup for the player, but also helps disperse the pressure over a larger area of the lips thereby increasing endurance. The mouthpieces have a V shaped cup, and have the perfect amount of resistance in the throat area to be able to play in the high range for hours. The back-bores are set up to accentuate the natural acoustics of a shallow mouthpiece with a trumpet - BIG, BRIGHT and FAT!!
The shape of these cups make it possible to play high easier for longer periods of time and not bottom out. The pitch center is more controlled than most shallow C cups as well. These mouthpieces are easier to produce a fuller sound throughout the entire range of the trumpet (including the higher range) as the shallow C cup and with more pitch control for longer periods of time."
Says Steve, "I love listening to pretty much anyone that plays in tune and has a wonderful sound. I listen to a good bit of Nicholas Payton, Claudio Roditi, older Doc Severinsen, older Maynard, Sergei Nakariakov, and older Chicago Symphony recordings."
