"Finally, I have found someone that would create a euphonium mouthpiece like no other! The Warburton/Robertson mouthpiece projects and responds at any dynamic level and it is very powerful. No matter how loud or soft you have to play, it gives you confidence and clarity in all ranges of the instrument. I use it in all types of playing; as a soloist, in chamber ensembles, British Brass Bands, Orchestral work, and for all my jazz stuff. It is the only mouthpiece on the market that is made of Bronze and it is on FIRE!"
