Our very own popular line of large-shank trombone mouthpieces are made for us in Los Angeles by Zig Kanstul's machinist, James New. His CNC lathe work is beautiful and very accurate. Each mouthpiece in the Ferguson line has a different outer shape and outer rim diameter for comfort and efficiency. These rims are rounder on the inner edge than most other brands, so they may feel wider than the dimensions indicate. It may be best to just try them out. If you seek vintage designs with space age machining and quality control, this is the place to look.
Symphonic tenor trombone mouthpiece sized between a 5G and 5GS, rounder rim for comfort, larger blank, for players wanting a compact symphonic sound in a medium cup diameter, based on a Minick 1 Tenor Mouthpiece, cup diameter 25.5 mm.

This is a completely new design, which is a mix of our favorite boutique 5G, a rounder more comfortable Minick style rim, and a smartly weighted outer shape. Deeper than the Model 1, with a similar rim width and heavier outer shape. Compare to a decently large feeling B5G. Our final design was chosen and is now played by Alex Iles, principal trombonist of the Long Beach Symphony all around LA studio cat. One of our best-selling mouthpieces.
