Product Information

Backbore: #0
Very free blowing backbore that allows the orchestral player to use massive quantities of air without losing focus.  Commonly paired with either a #24, or #25 throat. 
Applications - Orchestral/Symphonic playing
Backbore: #1
For players who prefer a free blow with less resistance than the #2 backbore. 
Applications - Orchestral/Symphonic playing
Backbore: #2
This backbore offers the 'classic' feel that classical players have grown accustomed to.  With just the right amount of resistance this backbore has a bold beautiful tone.
Applications - Orchestral/Symphonic/Soloistic/Chamber playing
Backbore: #3
Offers great stability while retaining that 'classic' sound.  Offers more resistance than the #2 without losing the beautiful tone. Applications - Chamber Orchestra/Jazz Combo/Soloistic playing
Backbore: #4
A compact, and focused sound without adding great resistance. This backbore blends well for big band section playing without producing that strident sound known for lead trumpet playing. The compact, and focused sound pair nicely for piccolo trumpet playing. Applications- Jazz Band/Jazz Combo/Piccolo Trumpet/Soloistic playing

The Pickett Brass #10 series backbores offer an overall different feel than the standard line. Available in many throat options.

Model 10-1
Very free blowing orchestral backbore, commonly used with a #24-#25 throat to create that orchestral sound/feel that is desired in symphony orchestras. Applications - Orchestral/ Symphonic playing
Model 10-2
Our most popular classical backbore.  The 10-2 creates a large sound without losing you with too much inefficient volume. This backbore offers that ‘classic’ backbore feel/blow that many have grown accustomed to.
Applications - Orchestral/Symphonic/Soloistic/Chamber playing
Model 10-3
This backbore offers slightly more resistance than the 10-2 without compromising the overall beautiful large sound.  The attacks are more pronounced and speak quicker which creates a perfect mouthpiece for small group playing. Applications - Chamber Orchestra/Jazz Combo/ Soloistic playing
Model 10-4
An extremely efficient backbore, offers a bright, focused sound.  This backbore blends well for big band section playing without producing that strident sound known for lead trumpet playing. Applications- Jazz Band/Jazz Combo/Soloistic playing
Model 10-5
A very compact backbore that produces a sound that is desired by lead trumpet players.  The added resistance will aid in sound projection, faster articulations, and efficiency. Applications - Lead Trumpet/ Jazz Band/ Commercial/Piccolo Trumpet/Soloistic playing

One of a kind mouthpiece backbores.  

Backbore: R
Offers a slightly more open feel than the V, and C4 backbore.  The R backbore is a great option for players who love the articulation and response of the V, and C4 backbore, but wish for the extreme upper register to offer less resistance when pushed.  Applications - Lead Trumpet/Commercial/Piccolo Trumpet/Soloistic playing
Backbore: V
Extremely responsive with impeccable articulation throughout the full register of the horn.  The backbore offers great resistance creating an efficient and fast air-stream.  Applications - Lead Trumpet/Commercial/Piccolo Trumpet/Soloistic playing
Backbore: C4
Produces a more aggressive sound than the 10-5, which aids in sound projection when playing with electronic instruments.  Very responsive with quick articulations, and creates that 'zing' in the sound if that is desired.  Applications - Lead Trumpet/Commercial/Piccolo Trumpet/Soloistic playing
