Just curious. Obviously there must be someone who likes the model since they sold them. For myself it feels wrong in about every way a mp can feel wrong. I got one by complete random happenstance. I showed up to play with an oompah band riding with my girlfriend and realized I had left my regular mp in my car - I was buzzing on it and forgot it. A Jet-Tone T1A as it happens.

The other trumpet player happened to have a Studio B in his case so I played on it for the duration of this gig, possibly the most uncomfortable trumpet experience of my life. Completely unlike the T1A.

Maynard Ferguson’s lead player for years played a Jet Tone Studio B and sounded Great!!! I heard him out front and beside him in the section when I played with Maynard.

There may be some major variance in that model on later versions.

The original Studio B, of which I own one, was played very well by a number of players I knew.

I did get a more recent version and it was basically unplayable and in no way comparable to the old one.

One of my mentors, the late Andy Hagan, played on one (the original) with some modification and sounded fantastic ALWAYS.

The cup bite is VERY rounded and not my preference anymore.

Perhaps a Jet-tone expert can give good info.

The new Studio B mpc I saw was much different.

The T1A is a very large OD. I played a T2B for a while, same ID but rounder rim and deeper cup. T1A is shallow with a very flat rim. My man, Leon Merian used a T2B for big band gigs towards the end of his career and a Bach 1C for everything else. I think the T series is slightly larger ID that the Bach !. The Studio B is more in the 7 to 10 range ID wise.

You were comparing apples and oranges.

I played on a Studio B for years, and liked it a lot. Preferred the D rim, and went to a Custom 1D until I got an actual custom jet-tone, but the Studio B worked very well for me.
The T-1 and T2 were always too wide for me, though. But what works for you and what works for me are almost always very different things.

If my memory is correct, Tower of Power's Mic Gillette and Greg Adams played the Jet-Tone Studio with the D rim, not the B, during the early part of their careers.

I will repeat what I've said here many times concerning Jet-Tone mouthpieces.

The original concept was totally a Ray Amado design. Ray's partner was Bill Ratzenberger. Ray found out Ratzenberger was being less than candid with the money and left the operation in Ratzenberger's hands. From that point on the Jet-Tone designs were never consistent even though Amado left all the tooling behind. When Jet-Tone changed hands many times over the years, things got even worse and no two mouthpieces were like the Amado originals.

And when did that change (Amado leaving) take place?

Mic started out on a Studio B and went to the D rim a couple of years later (I still have t e B he gave me when I was 11). Greg played on one of the Custom models, which had a touch wider ID.

My recollection is Ray Amado gave up on Ratzenberger in 1968.

Do you mean the blank shape, rim, and/or backbore? I've been hearing
quite a bit about another company trying their version of that copy.
