Classic Parduba Design!

The Original Parduba Mouthpieces (Double-Cup)
Gives you two mouthpieces in one.
The scientific reaming of the top cup furnishes the shallow cup which is necessary to secure the extreme high tones and they come with the greatest of ease, G a bad tone for many performers, comes true. High Bb comes as effortless and with as great volume as G is ordinarily produced.
The extreme high tones, which occur occasionally in ordinary music and frequently in solo playing or in difficult passages, are produced more easily and with full volume because the shallow upper cup puts them within reach by increasing the performers range. This is accomplished with the Parduba Double-Cup Mouthpiece without sacrificing tone quality or volume in the middle and lower registers because the lower part of the cup is of the regular conventional bore.

    Comments about Parduba Trumpet Mouthpiece Series:

    Mouthpieces are like shoes... Clearly one size does not fit all. I've been playing with this mouthpiece for about 3 weeks. It will continue to be my primary mouthpiece. It's not a miracle mouthpiece, since getting this mouthpiece I find a can play longer and my upper range has increased just slightly from a E to an F on my C-trumpet. But do find it easier to hit those higher notes that I could already play before. On the other hand, I have a friend who tried the mouthpiece and didn't like it at all. So, it works for me, not for everyone.

    Comments about Parduba Trumpet Mouthpiece Series:

    This is the first mouthpiece I've tried that can have a huge difference on your sound. For me, the strongest difference is in the lower register where it really becomes easy to get a Harry James like "fat" sound. I don't find a huge difference in the upper register in terms of range extension that you might expect from the double cup design, but it sounds great in upper registers as well. This mouthpiece is difficult to beat for lead work where you want a fat sound that projects. Conversely, I don't think it works well at all for something like Chet Baker style jazz. I normally play a huge Schilke 24, so I ordered the largest Parduba 8. In comparison for delicate Jazz, the Schilke is far superior. I almost can't play the Parduba in any kind of delicate emotional way, but for lead work, the Parduba sound is amazing and the Schilke doesn't compare. This is a great mouthpiece for the right application. I've also ordered the 5.5 Parduba -- wanted to try it since this is more the size that Harry James actually played, so will post a review when I've tried that out.
