ďI work with a 7-piece Dixieland band playing Tailgate Trombone on a King 3-B. On occasion I have to fill in on my Benge trumpet. If Iím doing ONLY trumpet I can lead songs for about an hour or 2 with that smaller mouthpiece (and smaller embouchure). However if I have to switch back and forth between trumpet and trombone Iím in bad shape after just a few songs.

I was referred to Dave Chamberlain in San Diego. Dave said his company (Chasonís Music) is manufacturing a Hybrid Crossover trombone to trumpet mouthpiece similar (so I understand) to the early Al Cass models except you can interchange shanks for Trumpet, Cornet, or Flugelhorn. It has a very shallow cup and Bach size 11 rim. The workmanship is excellent (see www.chasonsmusic.com for more details).

I demoed it on a Dixie gig at the Lawrence Welk resort. I was able to switch back and forth effortlessly between trombone and trumpet for the whole evening and it sounded great!

I had tried just using a smaller trombone mouthpiece in a trumpet but it was hard to blow and had a very dark sound. Daveís mouthpiece, on the other hand, produces the bright conventional trumpet sound and is extremely easy to blow! Needless to say I kept it and I highly recommend it to trombonists who want to double on trumpet, cornet, or Flugelhorn.
