    Try a Schilke. Just about the same but with a more comfortable rim.

    You should try a Curry 3C. Sort of like a Bach 3C, but with a better sound and more comfortable rim. Pretty inexpensive, too.

    OK. Then there is the Kanstul G2 (Miles Copy of his Gustat-Heim) Here is a cut with me using it. Check out the flexibility of sound I am able to achieve with this. I start each solo as dark as I can (while still trying to project volume over my high energy rhythm section), then listen to how it lights up my Martin Committee in the upper range:

    I'm just an occasional flugelhorn player using a Curry mouthpiece which I like very much. Would love to try out some of Flips mouthpieces. The Curry I use is kinda middle of the road. When I need a lighter sound, I use the B&S Thierry Caens mouthpiece. But I'm still looking a nice mouthpiece (NO Denis Wicks) that can give me an even darker, sweet sound (although not too airy). Unfortunately, brands like GR, Flip Oakes, Curry or Kanstul are not available to test play in Europe and funds are not unlimited :)

    The Donat trumpet mouthpiece I bought is currently being used by a fellow trumpet player.
    Don't think I will be getting it back any time soon ... he's loving it even more than I do :D

    I always thought a "magic mouthpiece" was the current one that someone was trying to sell me. ;)

    More seriously, very nice video posted by loil.

    Hey Mike, he comes to NYC for a tour in January. I am trying to get him to post his dates... if I can swing it, perhaps we can make this venue together... Maybe Christophe will be able to get us back stage passes and we can have our own international trumpet hang!
