Parduba James Model Trumpet MouthpieceThe Harry James models feature the same double cup design as the standard Parduba trumpet mouthpieces, but slightly shallower with smaller 2nd cup for an easy high register.

I have been playing trumpet for 22 years, and this is the first mouthpiece I have tried that has done anything better than my old Bach 2C (and I have tried quite a few). In fact, it does most everything better than my old Bach 2C.
Most of my playing is commercial, and lately I have been playing with a Reggae band that asks me to play in the high register frequently. The Parduba 5 James model gives me a much prettier, smoother tone in the high register, and it still has a good tone in the low register.
It played great from the first day I tried it, and it gets better every time I practice. After being in a slump and gaining no additional range for the last 8 years, this mouthpiece keeps giving me more with every week of practice.
I ended up going with a much smaller size than anything else I have ever tried because the smaller mouthpiece had a better sound than the larger ones I tried and showed no loss in the low register (even in pedal tones). Try one out; you'll be surprised what this weird looking thing can do.
No doubt this a lead mouthpiece. The first thing that I noticed was how amazingly playable it is...and comfortable. The second thing I noticed was how bright it was--almost too bright. It draws from some of the full-timbre of the horn, but the playability and the extended range in the upper register is, in my mind, a balanced trade-off. Otherwise I would have given 5 stars. Plays a bit sharp as well. Overall...I am quite happy with it. More and more so as I experience more playing time on it. Give one a try!
If you research the history of Parduba mouthpieces and also Harry James you will find this mouthpiece was a big part of his sound. I have played a lot of mouthpieces thru the years just for trial purposes to find out that what works best for a person has a lot to do with their lip and teeth structure and what sound you are looking for. I like Big Band swing and Jazz so this mouthpiece works great for me. I have dealt with the WWBW for years and they are honest and straight forward people to deal with. Please research Parduba and Harry James before you purchase this because not all people can play these. I had a Jerome Callet copy of this mouthpiece and it was not as good and 4 times the price.
If you'll looking for another mouthpiece that will magically allow you to play like Harry James, keep moving. Trying to use this mouthpiece without good fundamentals and patience will only lead to frustration. To have success with a parduba you have to become accustomed to it by practicing for at least couple of months. The mouthpiece has a nice warm sound and does aid in the upper resistor. If used correctly, you'll get a nice warm tone and flexibility. You might feel that the mouthpiece is too tight when trying it out, but that is how it was designed to be. Use less air and pressure when playing. Also surprisingly, the mouthpiece becomes VERY open high G and beyond.
It's a great mouthpiece that doesn't sacrifice tone and still helps you with your tone. I can play bright jazz songs and also play classic music with these mouthpieces. The rims are very comfortable, but this is not a magic mouthpiece, like all mouthpiece you still need practice and dedication to improve your playing.
