Signature mouthpiece of an amazing trumpet soloist.
Allen Vizzutti's fantastic performances require a mouthpiece with exceptional qualities. His extended playing range and incredible technique requires a perfectly balanced mouthpiece, one which allows him to leap huge intervals with centered, accurate intonation and to change in a flash from a screaming lead sound to a warm broad 'classical' tone. The shallow cup with smooth inner rim edge gives a clear focused sound and plays evenly in all registers. It can increase the high range of many players without sacrificing tone in the low range. The Vizzutti mouthpiece offers great sound, incredible flexibility, plus impeccable intonation in all ranges, which in Allen's case covers a wide area! Gold-plated rim and cup.
Yamaha's Signature Series mouthpieces come after years 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 of these mouthpieces. Each Signature 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 Allen Vizzutti Signature Series Trumpet Mouthpiece:
I ordered this mouthpiece because I needed a "lead" style mouthpiece. It did NOT add any notes to my range. But this doesn't matter because if you need a bigger range, you should practice for that, not look for the magic equipment. It's a very comfortable mouthpiece, that has a rim similar in size to a 3C. It allowed me to produce a more commercial sound without having to work hard. I found that higher tessatura playing was easier. Overall, I liked this mouthpiece, and it required a small adjustment for the shallow cup, but now that I am used to it, lead gigs are no longer a pain.
