"The Warburton RS4 is the result of literally years of design and testing. It is a great all-around mouthpiece for the modern tenor trombone player. The generous yet not oversized rim allows a fullness of tone, while a standard sized cup depth and throat provide great clarity. I know of no other mouthpiece that gets the response in articulation of this with such a full and even tone from pedal F to high F. It is a terrific piece for solo playing and lead orchestral playing, yet has enough body of tone that I use it on second trombone parts on a daily basis."
