    A very good friend of mine went to the NAMM show today. Yes there is a new line of Calicchio Signature Line of Mpc's out now. I haven't checked the Calicchio website yet, but they're gonna be availible soon.

    You can add Scooter, Dennis Noday, Doug Michels (trpt with Gloria Estefan) and Lynn Nicholson to the list.

    I was told the Cat Anderson one was just “ novely piece “ for the show to show what kind of piece Cat played. Won’t be available to the public.



    My buddy said that when he was at the booth, Chuck Findley, Bobby Findley, Charley Davis, Mic Gillette ( sounded like he was old friends with Larry G ) Jay Daversa, Pete Candoli and Roger Ingram were hanging at the booth. My buddy also just took 2 steps back and just took it in.

    Don't worry Jim.... If you go to Rick's site...link posted above he has most of them with all of their specs... Shouldn't be too bad!

    One of the mouthpieces listed is almost the exact same specs as to what I play so I am definitely going to have a few of them in my pouch! This is a Calicchio players' answered wish! If they play as well as the trumpets do (which I have no doubt from looking at all of the listed endorsee's) then looks like these mouthpieces might make a run on the big boys right off the bat!
    Anyone know who is actually doing the manufacturing?

    Calicchio Mpc's

    I know some of the endorsees ... They really do love their new mpc's, and are using them now. It will be very interesting to try them. Wish I'd been able to go to the NAMM to see the "unvailing". It appears to have been a who's who of trumpet players.

    Calicchio mouthpieces

    I had the opportunity to try a few Calicchio mouthpieces.
    I ended up using the Lee Thornburg model for an entire gig and I didn't miss my regular piece at all. Subsequent practice sessions and a 2 hour lesson with Joe Mosello proved to me that the piece is a winner. Thank you for a great design LeeThornburg! I'm normally a .620 diameter player, but the Thornburg at .630 had a zero learning curve. I had more sound/core over the entire range, and altissimo was there -no problem. (B's C's and a few Ds). The exciting thing about the Calicchio mouthpiece line is.. every one of these pieces is being used by working pros whose livelihood depends on their equipment. There's bound to be a great Calicchio piece for everyone. I couldn't be more impressed at the quality of the pieces too... the weight, plating, fit, etc. all were perfect.
    Thanks again to Lee Thornburg for his design.. to Calicchio , and Larry Gianni for making this all happen.

    Well,

    I did put them up on my chart in case anyone would like to see how the inside diameter matches up to other mouthpieces. Remember the chart, however, tells only one part of the story -- but it is good place to start.

    See my signature.
