In the past, I performed primarily on Schilke B1 and B5 ML-bore trumpets. I experimented with many different brands and decided that Schilke and Bel Canto gave me the best performance for my playing style and tonal desires. In 2006 I started playing on M-bore trumpets; primarily the Schilke B6, B7 and S42. In early 2013 I started playing the Flip Oakes' Wild Thing Bb L-bore trumpet. I have traditionally played on Monette STC-1 series mouthpieces; the B1-5 and B1-5L (both Prana and Classic versions) being my "go to" pieces 90% of the time.
