Trumpet - Charlie Bertini - One of our favorites
| || |
| "I have been playing my Warburton custom mouthpiece since 1985. When Terry and Ken developed the KT backbore, I fell in love with it's versatility. I use the same equipment for all my musical chores, including studio work, big band, dixieland, small group jazz, solo work, and pops concerts. This is the most flexible and reliable mouthpiece equipment I have ever used. I can't imagine any other mouthpiece that could make my work easier or more productive, and it creates a perfect balance for my Lawler trumpet."|
