Dave Hickman Signature Trumpet Mouthpieces

Size Guide

I have known forever that brass mouthpieces have a lot of energy loss. Because of that I wanted to try out steel mouthpieces. I got a full set of the David Hickman line of mouthpieces. I played them for a little while and I loved the rim. It is so comfortable to play. I love the increase in dynamic range on both ends. They have some nice softs. 

BTW I love the way my Hickman pieces play. Give steel a chance. They play really well.

Dave Hickman Signature "Big Boy" Orchestral Trumpet Mouthpiece

Designed for Dave Hickman. Available with two different rim styles–a wide rim that Dave has used forever, and a more traditional Bach style rim. Dave's rim is extremely comfortable, and can be played for hours without the typical exhaustion and fatigue that occurs on a more traditional rim. Available in both a satin finish (for more grip) and a shiny finish (for those who like a slippery rim). This mouthpiece is at home in any playing situation, from orchestral to chamber music. This mouthpiece really does it all! It is easy to play loud, and soft, and the extreme highs and lows are effortless. The tone is also easily manipulated to fit the ensembles you are playing in.

Dave Hickman Signature Medium Deep Cup Trumpet Mouthpiece
