"I have played several different kinds of gigs from: Epcot's Future Corps at Walt Disney World, recording studio sessions, symphony orchestra work, Dixieland, be-bop, big band, and several other musical styles. Since 1985 I have been using a Warburton mouthpiece because its efficiency and versatility allows me to play any musical style without having to change my mouthpiece.
Over the years as I became able to use my air more efficiently, I was able to change the size of backbore without changing the rim and cup diameter. Because of the many mouthpiece combinations Warburton offers, I was able to continue playing without having to take time off to get used to a new mouthpiece. Kenny and Terry helped me, and made it possible for me change my equipment and not miss any work. Currently I play an Warburton 8SV with a 7 backbore and a 26 throat, and the trumpet I use is a large bore T357 Arturo Sandoval model Leblanc.
I have used several different brands of horns and my Warburton mouthpiece has always worked well with all of them."
