Our very own popular line of small-shank trombone mouthpieces are made for us in Utah by master mouthpiece maker 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.
