Omaits GPT (General Purpose Tenor) - Top Only
Inner Diameter: 1.030"
Outer Diameter:
Preferred Backbore: T1 and T1* (Not Included)

"The GPT [...] is just what I was hoping it would be: A bit more feedback on the blow to help offset the larger rim and cup, and provide a lot more core and focus to the sound. Works perfectly with my T1 backbore! I can play jazz comfortably or lead if I give it some gas. Plus if I put it in a medium bore trombone, I can do pit orchestra tenor or orchestral principal parts just as easily! With a T1* backbore, it works superbly on small bore euphonium.

If you’re used to a larger rim and want a piece that’s very flexible with tons of core to the sound, I think it really hits the target for something that you can use for pretty much anything; a General Purpose Tenor mouthpiece, if you will."

"How can I sum up my bass mouthpiece in one word? EASE

I was recommended to contact Warburton by my business partner, George Schlub who worked with Terry on many projects in the past. I took a specific rim shape and cup design that worked well for me, and combined it with Terry's ingenuity for ultra-efficient blank and backbore design to create what I consider the Holy Grail of bass trombone mouthpieces. Its medium weight blank combined with the versatility of interchangeable backbores keeps my sound solid with lots of core throughout the entire range and dynamic spectrum, articulation response lightning quick, and comfort that allows me to play all day without excess effort. I wanted a bass trombone mouthpiece that does everything well; High range, low range, soft, loud, and Terry certainly delivered! I can play anything I want with EASE on this mouthpiece! It plays well with any bass trombone, but it particularly works well with my Schlub Brass Works bass!"
