    Testimonials

    Actually I had been hoping some day, some one, would make a stainless steel mouthpiece, as I already knew of the stainless steel pleasures.  My father had a machinist friend make one for me in 1961 after my acidic body chemistry ate through every plating known to man. I loved the feel of the steel against my lips, but eventually I went to a different size - and back to brass.  The G&W is a dream come true. The super smooth feel is wonderful. The response is quicker than brass and the inner design of the piece helps focus the sound with razor sharp clarity while still producing a warm dark tone. Compared to my original Model-T the G&W is a Ferrari.

    I purchased a G&W mouthpiece at the International Trombone Festival in New Orleans.  I purchased the titanium mouthpiece after playing on a Stork 5S for years and I know that this is the best mouthpiece that I've ever played on. All aspects of my trombone playing (range, flexibility, articulations, endurance, etc.) are all much better than ever.   If any of my students want to change their mouthpiece, the G&W mouthpiece will be the first that I recommend.  There is no honeymoon period with this mouthpiece, it just keeps getting better.  You guys do great work and I would like to personally thank you for making such a great mouthpiece.

    I received the Euros large shank tenor trombone mouthpiece yesterday. It is very different in response from any mouthpiece I have ever tried. All the comments on your website are completely true. The mouthpiece produces a richer sound immediately with easier articulations. The rim design is very comfortable and extremely smooth. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the mouthpiece is the response in the extreme high and low register. The clarity, resonance, and richness of sound in the upper register were truly impressive, with easy response at all dynamic levels. The mouthpiece responds extremely well with very little pressure on the embouchure. The rich overtones are extremely good. The low register and pedal tones were equally impressive, very open, resonant, rich and powerful. I have not encountered any other mouthpiece which displayed such response throughout all registers. The mouthpiece also looks sharp with the highly polished finish. Thank you for a terrific mouthpiece design.
