Classical design for the Vince DiMartino.
Vince’s trumpet mouthpiece is characterized by a medium cup width (Pickett 5), a medium deep cup (BC), 27 throat, and an open backbore. Just like Vince’s jazz mouthpiece, this mouthpiece has an extremely even tonal quality from the bottom to the top of the range. With the comfortable rim and medium bite , it promotes good endurance and response.
The Jazz model is comprised of a medium cup width, medium shallow cup (D), with some additional relief under the bite, a loose 28 throat, and a compact backbore. With extremely even tonal quality from the bottom to the top of the range and a comfortable rim and medium bite, it promotes good endurance and response.
The Zinger offers a rim diameter similar to a 5-6, a medium-shallow V cup, and added lip relief for better comfort after lip swelling.
Vince’s piccolo mouthpiece is an adapted version of his Jazz mouthpiece, with a 29 throat and new compact, cornet backbore.
The special flugelhorn design is based on a handmade version by Vince many years ago. Reverse engineered and reproduce accurately, it offers a unique, compact flugel feel and sound.
All Pickett mouthpieces are designed and manufactured in-house ensuring superior and unsurpassed quality. Every mouthpiece, whether trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, or french horn is hand inspected for defects and polished with the utmost care to maintain the precision dimensions and tolerances.
