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.
Austin Custom Brass Hybrid Series Trumpet mouthpieces
(available in standard blank only)
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.

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.
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 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!
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.
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
I've been playing on a custom TF cup Trent made me for about two months now and I love it. I needed something with an identical rim to what I was playing (which was no problem for Trent). This piece also plays incredibly in tune and efficiently. The sound holds together even as you approach high D's and E's. If you're sick of flugel or just need something to mellow your sound out, check out these mouthpieces!
