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 traditional stepped-backbore.
It comes with interchangeable backbores so you can use it on either a historic replica or on an instrument with a modern receiver.
The "Tromba" 1 provides more flexibility when playing without vents (as a natural trumpet), and works equally well when playing with vents, making for an overall more authentic "Baroque" experience.
The "Tromba 1" was named by, and is played by, BfB Baroque teaching artist Josh Cohen!
