Wayne: This mouthpiece was designed to accommodate the majority of my daily work demands. This "lead" mouthpiece is powerful, and very resonant in all registers. The core of sound is unmatched by anything I‘ve ever played my entire career. The rim has a soft comfortable bite for improved endurance. I was playing a Shew 1.5 and 2 before I made the switch to the GR Custom. The (GR) rim will feel larger and softer. I lost nothing with the larger rim feel. I gained a better sound, endurance, and range! Many of my colleagues in Los Angeles have noticed my enhanced sound!!
Wayne: This GR Mouthpiece shares the same rim as the WB Studio Model. The cup is deeper to enhance the lower overtones and to create a clear, full-bodied sound. Players will not lose any range due to of lack of compression, which sometimes happens with a change to a larger mouthpiece. This is my mouthpiece of choice for smaller ensemble playing, lower section parts, and for the occasional times that I use C trumpet.
