The Warburton Two-Piece Trumpet/Cornet Mouthpiece System
Choose the best combination of top and backbore size and shape for your needs!

Warburton Two Piece SystemWarburton Two Piece System
The Warburton system lets you choose a combination of rim diameter, cup style and depth, with a backbore to best balance your sound and resistance. This flexibility means you can have the most efficientmouthpiece with which to perform in any given playing situation.

Our two-piece system consists of fully interchangeable "TOP" sections and "BACKBORE" sections. Due to the many demands placed upon the modern brass player, the variety of Warburton cup designs are able to produce the most desired sound in any playing idiom.

The backbore sizes compliment the cup designs and further assist in the refinement and "fine-tuning" of the sound. Consideration has been given even to the placement of the backbore into the receiver (amount of gap).

The Warburton system allows the player the opportunity to personally "balance" their equipment. This can now be accomplished without the necessity of traveling to a mouthpiece maker or waiting for a mail-order custom made piece that often does not work and cannot be exchanged.

Warburton backbores are available in thirteen standard sizes for Trumpet, Cornet, Schilke Piccolo Trumpet and Blackburn Piccolo Trumpet.

In addition to the Warburton component-based system, custom mouthpiece work is our specialty. We can modify any manufacturer's mouthpiece to work with Warburton components. Gold plating is available too.

Cup Designs:

ES - "Extra Shallow" - otherwise similar to the S design.
ESV - Similar to the SV design with "V" style cup, but not as deep as the SV.
S - A shallow "bowl" shape. Preferred for lead playing and commercial work. Ideal for D, Eb and Piccolo trumpet.

SV - Medium shallow "V" style cup. This is an exceptional "high-velocity" cup for Piccolo trumpet and all upper register work. M - Medium depth with a modified "V" style shape. Our M cup design is the most popular because it works well in all playing situations from jazz to symphonic. MC - Medium "bowl" shape. The MC cups could be the ultimate in bright symphonic sound!
Warburton SV Cup Design Warburton M Cup Design Warburton MC Cup Design
MD - Medium deep "bowl" shape cup that produces a rich, dark, symphonic sound. D - Deep "bowl" shape. This cup shape produces the fullest of symphonic sound. It is ideal for the cornet parts with its warm sound. XD - This extra deep "V" style cup was designed to give the traditional cornet sound. Herbert L. would be thrilled with this model.

In addition to the designs shown above, we also offer the following options:

W - Wide Rim Option - Any of the Trumpet, Cornet, or Flugelhorn tops can be ordered with the W rim option which provides an additional 0.020 inch (twenty-thousandths of an inch) of outside diameter for players accustomed to slightly wider/fatter rims. "W" gives you just enough extra width to be noticeable, but not too much to the point where it feels bulky. Note that the W option is not available with the Signature models.
