All Bob Reeves Trumpet Mouthpieces are available with the following
trumpet backbore options:
An extremely efficient backbore. It
is the 692s backbore but at the length of a conventional
mouthpiece. This increases the straight bore leading to a full,
but focused sound.
A very efficient backbore. It causes
the mouthpiece to be physically shorter than our conventional
mouthpiece. When combined with shallow cups, it makes the upper
register very efficient. When combined with very deep cups (like
a "B" cup) it allows the darkness in sound of the cup while
continuing to assist in the upper register.
Our standard backbore. More centered
than a Bach #10 with excellent tone color and intonation. This
backbore works well on all of our cups. It was the 2nd backbore
Bob ever made.
Good for big band playing. Records
well; bright, focused sound. This is very popular on our
shallower cups (S and shallower). Good if you like to "power" the
upper register. It was named because Bob developed it in 1969.
Darker and broader tone than our 69
backbore. Works great for those players who "power" the upper
register. It is a combination of both our #69 and #2 backbore and
thus the name, 692.
Flexible, big sound for the strong
Our Symphonic backbore which is
similar to some Bach and Schmidt backbores. Used in combination
with deeper cups for a large, teutonic sound.
Our physically largest backbore.
Mostly used with rotary trumpets or by orchestral players that
move large quantities of air.
