Justin Croushore - TZ-103 Trombone Mouthpiece

July 07, 2017

As an artist that performs in a wide variety of styles and settings, having the right equipment for the job at hand has always been extremely important to me. With Ivan Giddings' incredible designs I have finally found a line of mouthpieces that match my needs- whether I am playing tenor or bass trombone, as a soloist, in an orchestra, chamber group, commercial group or in the studio, these mouthpieces are up for providing the flexibility that my career demands, with no compromise at all. Also, stainless steel is the real deal! It feels better on my face and responds faster than any other mouthpiece I have tried. Bravo Ivan on your amazing work!
In these few weeks I really have been able to put the TZ-103 through a lot of trials and different styles. I am happy with it, and look forward to using it for a long time. Thanks for everything Ivan, and looking forward to working with you!

Lode Smeets - Boreas Trombone Mouthpiece

May 23, 2017

When the Boreas first touched my chops, the first thing I noticed was the nice smooth feeling it gave. After playing a few notes it continued feeling more and more contortable. In my neverending search for the perfect ambouchure I myself have some points that are very important. The Boreas gives me the big and broad sound in the middle and lower register and the brilliant sound in the high register, wich I find the most important as Principal trombone. It gives me the opportunity to differentiate in articulation and dynamics.

The mouthpiece matches perfectly with my Hans Kromat trombone.

Very happy with my purchase!
