Trumpet - Benoit Glazer - Cirque du Soleil
"I switched to Warburton mouthpieces when I first moved to Orlando in late 1998. after about two years, I drifted off and went on a real mouthpiece safari, spending thousands of dollars, never quite finding what I was looking for.
I found it recently. It was a Warburton mouthpiece.
There is something special about the response, the immediacy, the directness of a Warburton piece that I never could find on any other mouthpiece, from any other manufacturer. Terry and Kenny have found a recipe that works. Of course, another big plus is that you get friendly, fast service when you deal with Warburton, often getting your work done within the hour.
Several years ago, when fire destroyed the old Warburton shop, I was one of many people who helped any way we could to get them back making mouthpieces, and I am really glad they did. I might not have rediscovered the joy of playing a Warburton again..."
