models are on the larger side of the mouthpiece spectrum creating a deep, vibrant sound with a well-focused center. Conceptually developed to meet the demands of the modern orchestral player, these new models have comfortable rim shapes that provide a nice clarity in attack. The cups on the D1, D2, and D3 are deeper bowl shape cups for players needing more depth in their sound, but provide enough feedback for control.
The Dave Hickman Signature Series for Trumpet is at home in any playing situation, from orchestral to chamber music. This mouthpiece really does it all! It is easy to play loud and soft, while the extreme highs and lows are easily obtained. The tone is also easily manipulated to fit the any ensemble. Designed for Dave Hickman, and available with two different rim styles a wide rim, that Dave has used forever, and a more traditional Bach style rim. Dave's rim is extremely comfortable, and can be played for hours without the typical exhaustion and fatigue that occurs on a more traditional rim. Available in both a satin finish (for more grip) and a shiny finish (for those who like a slippery rim).
