Trumpet - Jose Chafer Mompo
|"I first met Terry before the eleventh CIMVO conference in Spain. From the first time I tried his mouthpieces, I could feel the many advantages his products could offer. I immediately noticed a greater resonance in my sound, faster response, improved range, and better projection. All of these things came with less effort than any of my other mouthpieces."|
