Josh Omaits - Trombone
Omaits GPT (General Purpose Tenor) - Top Only
Inner Diameter: 1.030"
Outer Diameter: 1.555"
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."
