“The Perfect Wood” is not quite the correct name for these mouthpieces — for me they are “The Perfect Mouthpiece!” I have been playing exclusively on wooden mouthpieces for over 20 years. I find the natural feel of wood allows me to feel more at one with the instrument but I have found them hard work. As soon as I blew The Perfect Wood I was astonished — everything was easier: production, slotting, range, but in particular ease of projection.

Wayne understands the anatomy of a trumpet mouthpiece intimately. Through a process of consultation he was able to create a mouthpiece that not only suited my style but revitalised my enjoyment in playing — I now feel more comfortable than at any time in my career, and I have been a professional musician for over 30 years. The stainless steel heavy shank of The Perfect Wood completely eliminates the compromises I have had to make with other systems, and I still have the depth and richness to my sound that only wood can bring.

These mouthpieces are not just a ‘curio’ or only for players with a metal allergy, they are a serious piece of kit for any discerning player!
