Griego - Ian Bousfield V5 Virtuoso Small Bore Alto/Tenor Trombone Mouthpiece (Silver Plated)
Ian Bousfield spent decades playing alto mouthpieces. His conclusions are, that for him, something around a conventional size 9 (my Model Alto) is perfect for most classical repertoire both orchestral and solo. These mouthpiece have the same rim and cup profiles as the rest of my range and is again a great balance between freedom and compression.
For larger orchestral repertoire like Brahms and Schubert symphonies Ian Bousfield chooses to play the V5 in the small shank.
