The LA TROMBA "B"(Baroque) trumpet mouthpieces:For the MODERN Baroque-Trumpet artist.
These mouthpieces were designed for performers who have to not only play the baroque trumpet but modern trumpet aswell and cannot allow him self to use outdated sharp rimmed Cups that tire and often even damage his lips!
Stop cracking notes!!!
La Tromba "Baroque" Trumpet Mouthpieces come (like all La Tromba Mouthpieces) in cup sizes wth a cross sectional diameter from 15 mm to 19 mm. with Authentic and Modern comforable rims!
These mouthpieces do however always have TRADITIONAL (Historical) Baroque and Renaissance cup forms, throats and back bores and of course authentic (large) historical shanks.
They fit well with all versions of "Authentic" and Modern "Baroque" and Renaissance Trumpets (Egger, Mundkwitz, Raquet etc.)
There design promises extreme tone stability in both the high and low register with a clear focused tone center, which greatly reduces the ususal problems of "cracked"- notes!
The models "B1", "B2" and "B3" have progessievly flatter-cup depths allowing a choice for the Principal, Clarino and extreme high "Supra-Clarino" ranges.
