This is a presentation from trumpet craftsman Dave Monette, explaining his innovation in mouthpieces. Dave Monette’s mouthpieces can be seen on players all over the planet, even if they’re not playing a Monette horn. They’re that good. Find one here, but before buying one, read this.

He also goes into detail about the inner design of his trumpets and how his other interests informed his trumpet innovations.

Don’t want to leave you hanging. Here’s Andy Gravish playing Art Farmer’s flumpet mentioned at the end of the video.
