I took delivery of the mouthpiece on Saturday 28/09/19. Super fast shipping considering I live in the UK, On inspection the mouthpiece is flawless, made to a very high standard indeed. This mouthpiece has made my horn sound considerably warmer, which I was looking for. A big thank you to Josh who helped with the order. Thanks Josh.
We are beyond excited to proudly present the ACB Gen II trumpet mouthpieces.
Available in standard blank and modern blank!
For 6 years I have been waiting for this moment and it's finally here!
Why add a new series of mouthpieces?
It's simple: we can control every aspect of manufacturing. No more delays via plating (we are doing plating in house). Our tolerances are superb, our quality control is meticulous since we now can control every single piece. Engraving is simple and easy to read.
In general, the Gen II pieces are slightly shallower than their Standard Series counterparts (and have a slightly flatter rim).
Here's a quick comparison chart of our new Gen II one-piece mouthpieces. We are currently working on SolidWorks visual renderings and those will be up shortly as well.
1C: This is my take on an older Bach 1C, but with an improved throat blend into the bowl (which is large). It feels significantly more efficient and sounds more energized while maintaining a rich core throughout the registers.
1.25CS: This is one of my most popular pieces in the ACB line, featuring a traditional 1.25 rim and modified CS style bowl. It also has a much more efficient entrance into the throat. This combination helps the articulation and adds a lively "zip" to the sound. It is especially good on vintage trumpets or overly dark horns to make them "speak".
1.5R: Similar to the 1.25C in cup design except with a bit more crispness overall, this is a great 1.5 diameter offering we recently launched and is very popular.
3C: A take on a uniquely fantastic Bach 3C from the late 60's. I have never played a 3C like it. I think the added mass and proper matching backbore for this piece make this a formidable all-around mouthpiece!
3S: A shallow bowl mouthpiece with my Gen II 3C rim. This mouthpiece has wonderful efficiency and is fantastic for players who would like more zip and pop but prefer staying on larger diameter pieces.
3CV: The 3C rim with my V cup, based on the famous Heim models. This cup is similar to my TA-1 cup except deeper. It produces an extremely warm sound with efficiency you would never think possible.
TA-3: Many people have asked for a larger diameter version of my popular Gen I TA-1 mouthpiece (the first mouthpiece I ever designed on CAD software). This is a streamlined version of that piece with a bit more efficiency. To me it's a "game-changer" for my playing as it is capable of a huge amount of tonal colors and depth. This is bound to be a hugely popular piece in the line and we hope you check out the video above of the TA-3. Check out a clip of the TA-3 in action.
TA-4: A high-compression piece similar to my popular TA-Z (Zing!) but with a slightly deeper cup and more relaxed entrance into the shallow bowl, which will help people who tend to "bottom out" on shallower mouthpieces.
TA-Z: The TA-Z (or "Zing") might be one of the most comfortable commercial mouthpieces I've designed that can still maintain a beautiful sound from Pedal C to Double C and above. It features a .625 diameter with a medium flat rim and shallow hybrid V/S cup.

I have started back playing after some time off..longer than I would like to admit. I had found some vintage trumpets 1924 Conn - 1917 Blessing and read where this mouth piece works well with vintage horns and it does!! Terrific product and I have enjoyed playing on it since I got it. Still need time to practice and get to the level I want to be and with this mouth piece I know I will get there. I hope to go shopping again from the great guys at ACB.
After practice I tried the mouthpiece, it was mind blowing. The slotting feels closer and easier to hit compared to my old mouthpiece. 10/10 would recommend.
Having played a number of older Martin Committees, which can be inconsistent in quality and playability, I decided to go for the Adams A9 "clone". Knowing the consistent quality of Adams, I took the leap of faith—and I am so glad I did. This is not only a beautiful instrument, it is a joy to play. The large bore (.468) gives it an easy blow but not over exerting. What I really love is the tone quality. It is rich from the bottom to the top. I feel that this instrument can be used for a wide variety of styles, not just jazz. Adams, you pulled it off!!
First of all, it's always a pleasure to do business with Trent Austin. He is not only totally professional but super helpful and understanding. I just received a 3DS model mouthpiece. It is a fairly shallow piece but because of the mass, it still gets a full and non-strident sound. The rim is very comfortable and aids in flexibility.
