“ I started playing Warburton mouthpieces clear back in 1991. Terry’s commitment to excellence and level of customer service is just amazing. We worked through several designs back in the 90’s to develop my mouthpiece. Terry always came through with new ideas and ways to make things better. Kim is just wonderful to work with. Warburton is the choice of lots of Pros for a good reason.”

"Warburton Mouthpieces have made a huge difference in my career. I started playing Warburton in 1991 and have never looked back. The care and craftsmanship that go into these products have made Warburton a truly internationally renowned name in the brass world. Terry and Kenny have been there to help me a hundred times when I needed it. There is a reason that so very many professionals turn to Warburton for their needs. Not just because of the great products but also because of the people. Thanks again guys!"
