Legends Brass is preserving the history and the sound of legendary trumpet icons by recreating the mouthpieces they played. Back in the glory days mouthpieces were handcrafted by artisans such as Dominick Calicchio, Al Cass, and Rudy Muck. They were lovingly created works of art. Each piece had unique characteristics, which often could not be precisely reproduced with the technology of the day.
When we find a vintage mouthpiece used by a trumpet legend, we start by scanning the original. We may make minor adjustments to improve the general playability of the piece, but we are extremely careful not to diminish its uniqueness. And then we make it available to you, precisely reproduced using modern CNC technology.
We can’t promise that you will sound exactly like the legendary trumpet player you idolize, but we do promise that you will be happy with your Legends Brass mouthpiece!
