With an open backbore, coupled to a #23 throat, the Foster baroque trumpet mouthpiece offers both a full sound with the proper resistance and slotting to facilitate a great baroque trumpet feel. The traditional round cup with a tight turn to the throat provides exceptional slotting and accuracy. The round rim promotes comfort and offers familiarity for ease in playing. Shank size is 0.388" for modern receivers. Email us for custom shank sizes for other instruments.
The ‘Foster’ Signature Series baroque trumpet mouthpiece is the result of a close collaboration between John and Pickett Brass. After many years of performing and making numerous subtle adjustments to his mouthpieces, Pickett has created what John believes is his ideal mouthpiece. Pickett Brass understands trumpet players and the Foster Signature Series mouthpiece gives him the very heart of the authentic baroque trumpet sound he's looking for, with ease of agility, range and flexibility, all with a minimum of effort.
‘I only want to play the best, and I found it with Pickett Brass mouthpieces.’
