Designed by Julian Zimmermann and NikolaiMänttäri, BfB Baroque Beginner™ mouthpieces offer a more authentic option for trumpeters wanting to develop historical playing technique.
Available 3D printed (Nylon 12) or in brass with silver plating, with a historic flat rim and cup diameter options of 18mm (medium) or 19.5mm (large). Made with a modern trumpet shank, the BfB Baroque Beginner™ is ideal for use with both the BfB Baroque™ and BfB Natural Trumpet™.
Pickett Tromba 1 mouthpiece
The Pickett Tromba 1 is a classic take on the Baroque trumpet mouthpiece, with a large volume bowl cup similar to a 1C, a flat yet slightly modified rim, a #22 throat, and a stepped-backbore.
The Tromba 1 offers excellent response when playing with vents, and provides more flexibility than a modern trumpet mouthpiece when playing without vents (as a natural trumpet). The Tromba 1 was named by, and is played by, BfB Baroque Teaching Artist Josh Cohen.
