A living legend, Arturo Sandoval needs no introduction to those in the world of music. He is known as a trumpet and flugel virtuoso, and is widely considered one of the greatest players of all time. Legends Brass is honored to offer these pieces to our customers! This mouthpiece is based on Mr. Sandoval’s personal Bach Mt. Vernon 3C mouthpiece, which he allowed us to scan. The rim is identical to his, and the cup shape is identical, but the cup depth on the Legends model is slightly more shallow. The throat is a #23, which is very open. The backbore is the Legends Chicago which plays really broad and dark, but can sizzle when pushed.
Below are a couple of videos to inspire you. The first is Arturo Sandoval performing “A Night in Tunisia” with his mentor, Dizzy Gillespie. The second is Arturo Sandoval performing “Here’s That Rainy Day”. Enjoy!
Those who often switch between trumpet and flugel should consider a mouthpiece kit. The Arturo Sandoval trumpet mouthpiece and Sandoval Flugel have identical rims and other design elements that allow for quick and seamless transition between horns.
