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. Pickett uses several state of the art CNC machines and skilled finishing to produce the world class quality trim sets in a variety of weights and appearances.


One of a kind mouthpiece backbores.  There are seven different styles to compliment any playing situation.  All brushed finished.


The Pickett Brass #10 series backbores offer an overall different feel than the standard line. Available in many throat options.


Model 10-1

Very free blowing orchestral backbore, commonly used with a #24-#25 throat to create that orchestral sound/feel that is desired in symphony orchestras. Applications - Orchestral/ Symphonic playing

Model 10-2

Our most popular classical backbore.  The 10-2 creates a large sound without losing you with too much inefficient volume. This backbore offers that ‘classic’ backbore feel/blow that many have grown accustomed to.

Applications - Orchestral/Symphonic/Soloistic/Chamber playing

Model 10-3

This backbore offers slightly more resistance than the 10-2 without compromising the overall beautiful large sound.  The attacks are more pronounced and speak quicker which creates a perfect mouthpiece for small group playing. Applications - Chamber Orchestra/Jazz Combo/ Soloistic playing

Model 10-4

An extremely efficient backbore, offers a bright, focused sound.  This backbore blends well for big band section playing without producing that strident sound known for lead trumpet playing. Applications- Jazz Band/Jazz Combo/Soloistic playing

Model 10-5

A very compact backbore that produces a sound that is desired by lead trumpet players.  The added resistance will aid in sound projection, faster articulations, and efficiency. Applications - Lead Trumpet/ Jazz Band/ Commercial/Piccolo Trumpet/Soloistic playing



Do Pickett Brass backbores and mouthpieces affect my gap?


The diameter of our backbores and one piece shanks is 0.385".  Every mouthpiece receiver is different - so we recommend checking the leadpipe/mouthpiece gap and adjusting to find the optimal gap for you.  If you'd like to adjust your gap, you can request your backbore or one piece mouthpiece manufactured with a shank to access Reeves sleeves.  Or we can custom make a shank with the diameter of your choice.
