Hybrid - Juan C. de Urquiza Signature "JP"
The Juan Cruz de Urquiza trumpet mouthpiece, named after the splendid argentinian trumpeter comes in two different sizes:
JP: The diametre is slightly smaller than Bach's 3. A flat rim but very comfortable. A tapered C cup that makes this a very versatile with a rich sound specially for the higher ranges.
LP: the diametre and rim are the same as JP but it has a sharper and more brilliant sound. Great for lead trumpets.
This hybrid is unique by its one-of-a-kind sleek design while also providing cushion-like comfort, especially for playing in cold climates.
The cup of mouthpiece is made out of wood (curupay - quebracho colorado) and from the throat to the backbore it is made out of brass and silver. This duality results onto many benefits such as a balance between the warm-tones of a wooden mouthpiece and the brilliance of a 100% brass mouthpiece.
To add, the humidity that enters the mouthpiece stays on the backbore without ruining the wooden cup, resulting onto a longer-lasting piece.
These are high-quality hand-made products that are individually checked to precisely fit the measures.
