For the past year, Griego has been working with Gerry Pagano and Mark Hoelsher on a new bass trombone mouthpiece. On Gerry’s most recent trip, Griego came up with something they are proud to offer as their first Artist Series bass model.
This mouthpiece is very well balanced. Griego works with a lot of bass trombonists, so they are quite sensitive to the needs of you guys. While everyone loves big bass trombone sounds, a bombastic low register usually equates to a wide-open, “false ringing” upper register. This piece addresses that with a big bass sound in the low register that also works great in the upper register. And it does that without being overly bright.
The GP6 was created for those old-school fans of the 60 that like a thinner rim and wider cup diameter. If you like the GP but desire a larger bottom and more room for your face in the cup, this is probably the mouthpiece for you.
