The WARBURTON system facilitates the brass player's choosing of a mouthpiece with the optimum combination of rim diameter, cup style and depth, and backbore. This unique ability allows a player to fit together a mouthpiece that will best balance sound and resistance with his own instrument. The choices available with the WARBURTON system will afford one the most efficient mouthpiece with which to perform in any given playing situation.

  • They are numbered from 1 to 6, with 1 being the smallest and 6 the largest.

T*

  • Bore .250".
  • The T* (STAR) series is the same as the T series except that there is no cylindrical section.
