Must-have Mark Gould tone.
This mouthpiece has been designed for a big orchestral sound with enough projection to fill a concert hall. The wide inner rim size and open throat allow a warm broad sound even at fortissimo. But unlike other large mouthpieces it isn't limited to just symphonic playing. The high range is remarkably secure, with centered and accurate intonation, and its rim shape and the balanced amount of air resistance make it comfortable to play for improved endurance. Though an orchestral mouthpiece, it is versatile enough for all-around playing. Silver-plated.
Mark Gould has been principal trumpet of the Metropolitan Opera since 1973 and has led a busy life playing with chamber groups, jazz groups, and teaching at Juilliard.
Yamaha's Replica Series mouthpieces come after year of collaborating with hundreds of the world's best players at their R&D Ateliers. These players were unsatisfied with the commercial models out there and knew the Yamaha technicians would deliver exactly the tone and response they wanted. The demand for these mouthpieces has grown, so Yamaha decided to offer a select lineup. Each Replica Series mouthpiece is produced on a precise, computer-controlled lathe to guarantee each one is exactly the same as the one used by its namesake.

Comments about Yamaha Mark Gould Replica Series Trumpet Mouthpiece:
Mouthpieces are a personal choice, so what I experienced may not be true for everyone. With that said, however, the Yamaha Mark Gould Signature mouthpiece really opened up my playing and sound as soon as I put it in the receiver. I use it on all of my horns, and it really shines on my C trumpet. I found that the 24 throat felt great to play on and reduced the feeling of back pressure significantly, and the medium depth cup gave me a a boost in the high register and more control in the low register. The Mark Gould Signature Mouthpiece has a tone that is bright but full, and I could see it blending in in a variety of musical situations. One con: I'm not sure I love the rim shape. It causes my endurance to suffer, and isn't as comfortable as some that I've tried. In addition, the Mark Gould Signature Mouthpiece is a large diamater, open feeling mouthpiece, so if you don't have the chops or experience, this may not be the one for you. It certainly is worth a try, however. The price is more than reasonable for a mouthpiece like this one with more "custom" features. Hopefully you will love it as much as I do!
