The first thing I notice about a new trumpet mouthpiece is the quality of the packing and the condition of the trumpet mouthpiece. The Yamaha Eric Miyshiro mouthpiece is very well made which is obvious in the excellent silverplate finish of the mouthpiece,no dings,dents scratches visible here. Now I check the overall weight for the mouthpiece and find this light looking mp is heavier at the top,where it should be,and overall has the weight needed for trips to the stratosphere which is where even an average trumpet player will be going when playing this mouthpiece. I like the outside of the rim,rounded nicely and wider than you might expect from a high note mouthpiece. The Yamaha design aspects of this mp show they carefully accounted for the needs of the trumpet player seeking a comfortable mp for trips up high and mellow in the lower atmosphere as well. Lest I forget,I must mention the cup or bowl as I like to call it, is shallow but not too shallow so it is comfortable for me...
This mouthpiece is absolutely amazing! I'm originally a Tuba player but I have adapted to playing literally all instruments I can find and this is my absolute FAVOURITE mouthpiece! I can play my Concerto for Trumpet by Haydn flawlessly! That high Eb is a breeze now! This is a must for any Trumpet player who is looking to increase their range and all-out playing abilities!
Bought this for my son who is a HS sophomore. He requested this MP after testing out a friends one and thus been using it for the entire marching and football season. Sounds pretty impressive when I hear him scream double G's pretty much at will.
