- The GR FD Model mouthpieces are a hybrid design for use on most trumpets and more resistant flugelhorns.
- They offer a rich "Chet Baker-ish" sound and can also be used in place of a flugelhorn in most situations!
- The hybrid GR shank will match perfectly to most trumpet receivers.
- The sound is quite unique, almost like an "angry flugelhorn".
- This is an ideal set up for post horn solos, jazz gigs, or when travelling and you simply can not take the extra horn with you.
- The unique "flugel" cup makes this mouthpiece ideal for use on trumpet when you simply do not have a flugelhorn with you.
- The FD Series is available with all standard GR rims and are made to order.
"The GR FD is one of my favourite "go to" mouthpieces for very soft exposed passages. It blends well with strings and is very forgiving to play. It works well for small intimate group settings. In many cases I will use it in place of my flugelhorn. It would also be a nice choice for certain Brass Quintet pieces. (I also call it my career saver.)"
