Is anyone else having the success that I am having with the Bobby Shew mouthpiece? I am making a comeback from 1978 and was playing Leon Merian's personal mouthpiece.I couldn't find one so I went mpc shopping online. I tried a Parduba *6.5* , Jetone Leon Merian medium shallow, Asymmetric, Legend Lighting, 5C, 5E, 3C, 3E, 1 1/2C, 1E, and an old vintage mpc stampled "Germany" with no size. I ended up with the Bobby Shew .. I believe it is a 342 Lead mpc. I don't know whether it is the new Chinese trumpet I got or the Bobby Shew mpc but this is the first time i ever played a loud double G. BTW Don't ever trash a low cost Chinese trumpet. Mine was made by a small music company and I am having the best success I have ever had with any trumpet. The small music company is "OPUS" All I know is the company is small and unknown. You can Google "Opus Music Company"and find their website. I paid $99 (actually I got it for free) for it and the company refunded my money after they advertised their horn on eBay as professional and I couldn't find any documentation that backed up that claim.
