Be Equipted

I have been playing trumpet for about 14 years and one thing that I noticed is most important is equipment. Just like a basketball player has to have proper gear (shoes, uniform, etc.) or a carpernter has to have tools (wrench, hammer, nails, drill, etc.), a trumpeter must have proper equipment (horn, mouthpieces, etc.)

This summer I met a trumpeter from Baltimore that has given me lots of advice about equipment and it’s importance. Check out the following links about mouthpieces and values and let me know what you think…
