Here is a little sneak peak of some of the analysis that goes on behind-the-scenes here at the shop. Studying and understanding the acoustics behind the instrument and the mouthpiece only paints part of the picture. Each model represents hundreds of hours of analysis and interacting with players to find out what makes a particular mouthpiece “magical.”
We are excited to bring a new product to the trombone world in the next few weeks. With the Reeves Trombone Sleeves you can control the penetration of your mouthpiece in your trombone. For large bore trombones you can go back and forth between the standard large bore shank and the Remington shank just by switching sleeves. There is no need to get a separate mouthpiece.
