Tone is centered and locks each note securely. I'm still adapting to the compression and ability to control when bending while playing with a more jazzy style technique. The notes are locked in and suborn to bend, again this may come with a little more work on my part. It is surprisingly comfortable and I really enjoy the tonal center. I play on a 3M Lotus (nickel plated), which is slightly wider with a lot comfort, but I have to say the apredato even though slightly thinner offers a great feel and falls perfectly on the embouchure, like it has its own memory where it should be.
Get beautiful resonance and crisp dynamic response from Schagerl's revolutionary APREDATO Series trumpet mouthpieces!
The Apredato mouthpieces from Schagerl are a revolutionary step forward in mouthpiece design. This new Schagerl mouthpiece design was crafted with input from Prof. Hans Gansch (former Principal Trumpet Player of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra) and Thorsten Benkenstein (Lead Trumpet, North German Broadcast Big Band Hamburg, Germany).
The Schagerl Apredato Mouthpiece started with the intention of providing players with a fuller, darker sound and a deep, resonant quality without drastically changing the usual rim and cup shape. Most heavy mouthpieces can be difficult to play, having more resistance than normal. At first glance, the Schagerl Apredato mouthpieces appear to be like most heavy mouthpieces, but Schagerl took a different approach with the Apredato.
The mass of the Apredato is reduced to a minimum, then an attachment is fitted and filled with water. The attachment is coated in waterproof materials to prevent corrosion and sealed with rubber to prevent leaks.
Here's James Morrison talking about the Apredato mouthpieces:
Compared to normal mouthpieces the Apredato produces a darker, richer tone with higher volumes. Big Band trumpet players will love the "fat" sound.
Replacing the water can be done by hand and should be changed at regular intervals.
