Austin Custom Brass Hybrid Series Trumpet mouthpieces

(available in standard blank only)


See rims and comparisons here! 


After a lot of tweaking and prototyping, the Hybrid TF Series is here! This mouthpiece is a great option for the following needs and should be a welcome addition to any player's arsenal:

  • Solo playing in any situation
  • Flugel doubling on trumpet when the player cannot either afford a flugelhorn or have access to one (with the flight restrictions these days this could come in quite handy!)
  • Softer playing when you are "getting the hand" from the conductor
  • A great warm-down mouthpiece or to be used when your chops are especially fatigued after hard performances.


The mouthpiece is only available in the STANDARD blank, and most sizes are available. 

The rims are exactly identical to the ACB trumpet and flugel line.   

Call the Mouthpiece Hotline with questions or to place an order! +1-781-816-9664

    TF 1.5 deep cup trumpet mpc

    Posted by Rick Roenne on 23rd May 2021

    When this came in, I could not wait to try it. I was very impressed. Range, tone, flexibility, centered notes, slotting, everything was in place. Also checked the venturi, all the notes were in tune with the tuner. Made some adjustments on the tuning slide, but once the main tuning note was set, all the other notes feel into place. I have also included the KGU tone intensifier to the mpc and the volume went thru the roof. Never thought that this big a mouthpiece could extend my range that this mpc has done. Unbelievable. I'm not talking about pinching those notes above the staff, I mean full tonally of "C", "D", "E", "F", and now even the "G", four ledger lines above the staff. If I keep practicing, maybe one day, even the super "C". Just love it. Thanks guys. I'm going to tell everybody about this one.

    ACB TF mouthpiece

    Posted by bill bodine on 21st Feb 2021

    Got good advice from Josh at ACB. I wanted a dark sounding mp for playing jazz work. The TF (TATF) has the right sound AND the right resistance, allowing me to get around easily and accurately. Bb

    TATF1 mpc

    Posted by Fred Bradley on 7th Feb 2021

    I picked up the TATF1 in the traditional blank with an acrylic rim. The TF cup gives you that nice smooth mellow sound. It doesn’t require as noticeable increase of air to support the sound. The acrylic rim is a nice feature as it is softer on the chops. This rim will increase the need to properly support the side / corner embouchure muscles with less bite into the lips.

    Hybrid Series TF Mouthpiece, Model 3CS

    Posted by Dr Brian S Skrainka on 15th Jun 2019

    Absolutely love the Austin Custom Brass Hybrid Series TF Mouthpiece, Model 3CS (silver), for my new Kanstul Model 150 Bb Soprano Trombone. I am a trumpet player and this mouthpiece gives me a really rich, full sound.

    Perfect Fit

    Posted by Ryan McCaffrey on 22nd Sep 2018

    I was looking for a MPC to provide a darker warmer sound. I have played a 3c for 30 years. First I tried the 3CV. It is a perfect MPC for those looking for a little more warmth but retaining the ability for brightening up if needed. This mouthpiece, though, a 3CTF if just perfect for me. paired with my vintage horns it has a warmth and core like nothing I have ever played.

    Hybrid Trumpet Mouthpiece

    Posted by Hal Glidden on 13th Jan 2018

    I have three Bb trumpets that I rotate through and added a flugelhorn about a year ago. At first, the deep cup of the flugelhorn mouthpiece was a challenge but the sound was addicting. I recently purchased your MV3C TF hybrid trumpet mouthpiece on your recommendation and could not be happier. It is a true hybrid, providing the best of both instruments -- trumpet and flugelhorn. For me it is a transformative product that deserves the highest praise.

    Great piece for small group jazz!

    Posted by E. Bone on 22nd Nov 2016

    Great hybrid piece that gives you a full, warm sound without sounding too much like a flugel. Extremely easy to play soft passages while maintaining good intonation. Highly recommend trying this mouthpiece!

    5C-TF mouthpiece

    Posted by Jason - Australia on 9th May 2015

    I wanted something to take the edge off my sound for jazz trio/solo work in small venues. This mouthpiece works nicely. It takes the volume down and removes the sharpness. It is a very heavy in weight compared to Bach 5c too. Very good match to the 5c rim, the TA version is possibly more comfortable but I need to play a full set to confirm that (this is just my first impression). Nice job.

    TA Hybrid MP is Excellent

    Posted by bill bodine on 16th Apr 2015

    Listening to Trent play various mouthpieces on the same horn (YouTube) is a great way to ascertain the differences in pieces, since the horn and the player remain constant. Trent's demo helped me select the sound arena I was shooting for, knowing of course that my playing style and chops would personalize the final result. The piece itself is beautifully made. Trent has engineered in just the right amount of back pressure, so it doesn't wipe me out as fast as these deep piece tend to do! 4 stars instead of 5 only because I am waiting for the piece that will make me play like Freddie
