Marcinkiewicz Signature Series Trumpet MouthpiecesThe Marcinkiewicz company developed mouthpieces for many big name players over the years. Now they offer exact copies of these mouthpieces to the public. Each of these mouthpieces was designed for a specific player at a specific point in time.Marcinkiewicz Signature MouthpiecesTrumpet Signature modelsThese mouthpieces are made to each specific player's specifications. Measurements such as inner diameter, venturi, etc., are not arranged systematically, however this line is also numbered progressively by cup depth from deep to shallow.What the players say"The best thing I've put to my chops" -Scott Englebright, Lead Trumpet Maynard Ferguson & Big Bop Nouveau- Plays Marcinkiewicz E14

I have the Bobby Shew 1.5", and it's a great lead piece. Good tone in the upper register, but tone goes a little flat and fuzzy on the low notes. Increased my range from D above the staff to Super G. It's only good for lead high notes, though. It's tone on low and midrange notes isn't even good enough for solos. It's only worth the money if you play loud, extremely high notes for long periods of time.
I really like the Shew #1 top, but I'm not too crazy about Marcinkiewicz backbores. As a result, I had a 1971 Bill Chase Jet-Tone backbore threaded to a Shew #1 with a #27 throat and it plays great!
The Shew #1 top can compare to a 6A4a or Giardinelli 10S but perhaps a bit more "narrow" and more "bite" on the rim. It aids in preventing the ole "bottoming out" problem.
This piece is not recommended for "all around" playing or "legit" playing by any means. It's a lead and or high-note MPC period. I highly recommend a Shew #1 top if you're going to be playing lead and high-notes. I might suggest a backbore made by somebody else as the backbore that comes stock on a Shew #1 is a bit tubby sounding for me, that's why I added the older Jet-Tone backbore on it. Apart from that, it works great!
This is definitely the best lead piece I?ve ever played. I received this mouth piece when I ordered a Marcinkiewicz rebrant, shepherds crook" style trumpet. I actually have the E2, and if you play correctly on this mouthpiece, that is to say if you don't cram it into your face or over blow, your range is unlimited. It also plays superbly in-tune above the staff, again, if you play correctly. The only reason I gave this mouthpiece a rating of 4 stars is because I can only use it during lead jazz playing. I don't even use it when I?m soloing in jazz. It looses its volume and clarity below the staff.
I know with trumpet players, the ever on-going 'mouthpiece safari' becomes a bit of a joke and everyone has a different mouth and playing style. That said, this particular lead pc gives me everything I need in a tool to do my job well. The cup and rim are super comfortable and help with endurance, the throat is narrow enough to facilitate upper register without sacrificing fullness of sound. Far and away the best lead pc I have found,I can't see another beating this!
I never have been really happy with my 14A4A and after hearing our new trumpet player's Marcinkiewicz, I made the call. Spoke with the factory rep for at least 30 minutes. He asked a lot of questions and made his recommendation.
After two weeks, all I can say is "outstanding". Bright, big, fat, sexy sound with a great, easy high end and a pretty good bottom end also. I use it with a C.G. Benge (.468). I tried it in another players new Viper and found the top end slightly better but not as warm. Does away with the thin sound of the 14A4A. Must be the backbore. Going to try a couple of other models in the Marcinkiewicz line. It even gave new life to my 76 year old (ser. #3000) Olds Super. Gets 6 stars out of 5. Price is also outstanding. Just don't match it with a lightweight trumpet and expect to blend with the Bachs in an Orchestra. It would also be great for R&B, Salsa, Mariachi and marching bands
I am a senior in my marching band and I'm also the top trumpet player. I have had some trouble hitting the high C, and this year's show is requiring that I play a LOT of them. This mouthpiece came in about 30 minutes ago, and I'm hitting C's and above with NO problem now! My range has been from a the low F# to perhaps a high B natural (high C on a GOOD day). I used to play on a Faxx 7C for concert, and I purchased a Schilke 6A4a last year. It was too shallow for me. This is SLIGHTLY deeper than the Schilke but it DEFINITELY works for me. :) My range is amazing now. :D
This Lead piece by Marcinkiewicz is the best Lead piece I have ever played. It is great for players who can play a shallow piece. Adolfo Acosta, Scott Engelbright and Brian MacDonald all use this mouthpiece. Players who are accustomed to the Schilke line of mouthpieces will like this mouthpiece.
I play for the Spirit of Houston Marching Ban; I used to play on a 1 1/2c before I discovered the Marcinkiewicz Signature mouthpieces. By switching to the Bobby Shew 1, my range has increased four notes after only six months. I am up to a double B above the staff. The bite and feel of the mouthpice is great, I love this mouthpiece and you will too.
Just don't stick too much lip in the piece. If you use a wide aperture set, you will get a darker sound on it. Great lead piece. I use it everyday. Solos over a big band great but kind of nasty sounding by yourself unless you eat the mike, then you can get a dark enough sound to survive on a gig. I had kanstul make me a custom jazz piece for times I need to switch. The #2 is not a jazz piece.
This mouthpiece is the best!!! As long as you don't apply pressure you could hit any note possible. My range has increased from a double A to a double F above the staff. I recommend this mouthpiece for anyone who has an urge for high notes.
