Comments about Schilke Faddis Series XL Heavyweight Trumpet Mouthpiece in Gold:
Picked this up about a month ago and held off on the review to be sure I was past the "honeymoon period" However, first day out of the box I was happy with the piece. For me it provides a crystal clear and cutting upper register for big band and commercial work but isn't strictly for screaming. In adjusting from my old mouthpiece I played on this for everything, big band, solo work, orchestral work, etc. First time I played with the piece high C's and D's rang nice and clear, a large improvement in sound over my previous mouthpiece. I also noticed almost an immediate increase in range stretching from an unreliable high G to a solid Double C in the first few days. Attacks are clean and precise with great flexibility, and the gold adds a soft warm feel for the long gigs. Best money I have ever spent on in my playing career.
