Bill Carmichael (WCC)
Inner Diameter: 0.610
Outer Diameter: 1.090
Cup: Shallow V

Designed in 2004, the WCC top is designed with a shallow V cup with a semi-flat rim, for the lead trumpet player desiring a big sound in the low register and a full-bodied sound in the upper register that does not thin out. One of the main attributes of this mouthpiece is the cushion rim. This rim is a little larger in width making it easy on your chops. Even though the inner diameter is rather small, because of the rim contour, the mouthpiece does not feel that way. The WCC Signature is recommended to anyone who is looking for a little more edge in their sound without losing a full sound in the mid and low range.


Screamin' Bill 1
Inner Diameter: 0.620
Outer Diameter: 1.059
Bore: 27
Cup: Shallow Drop V

Screamin' Bill 2
Inner Diameter: 0.620
Outer Diameter: 1.059
Bore: 27
Cup: Medium-Shallow Drop V

This Drop V-Cup is for players that like the advantages of a straight V-cup, like the MF Giardinelli 1, but would like more stability and accuracy while playing in the mid and upper registers and allowing bigger lower tones. Both piece have a step down just under the rim, thus the "drop."  Screamin' Bill 1  is brighter in sound, ideal for recording and cutting through. Screamin' Bill 2 has a little more of a drop from the rim and is great for microphone work with a rock band.
