Peter does exceptional work. He does EXACTLY what you'd like. His backbore designs are simply phenomenal. I've never encountered any issues with this company...a lot to be said there! I hope like me, others discover his care and work. It means a lot when you are very close to the exact product you need to be at your best and his prices are exact and fair.
I recently ordered the Jens "Special" after re-reading his rant on mouthpieces and the benefits of playing more efficient gear. As the mouthpiece I currently play on is about a 5 rim, I figured, "why not?"
All I can say is, WOW!!! I received the mouthpiece on Friday and decided to give it a trial by fire. I played it for a musical on Friday night (literally, right out of the box), Saturday with a 30 piece orchestra, and this morning with a brass trio.
This mouthpiece made ALL of it easier. I realize that it may not be for everyone, but I believe it is for me. The sound is even across the entire range of the horn, and it is REALLY comfortable. Of course, Peter's design and finishing work is second to none.
If you pay a 5ish rim, and just looking for something better, give this a try. If only I could play like Jens.
Fantastic and comfortable!
The overall design of the mouthpiece is true to it's word: a sharp profile, but very comfortable. Comfort is important to the best chance in a confident set-up. From my visit to the old shop, to the many conversations with Peter, to the fun in just trying out the mouthpieces, this is an amazing brand, with amazing prices!
Just a quick note to thank Pickett Brass employees for the amazing service. I have never had a company do what they have done for me. They went above and beyond in service!!
Vintage Maynard Mouthpiece
I ordered the Vintage Maynard mouthpiece a few weeks ago from Roger Ingram (made by Pickett Brass). This is by far the best mouthpiece I have ever owned. I definitely see why Maynard played this basic design for his entire career. I have soared to an F above triple C on this mouthpiece. It amazes me at the huge sound one can get out of this small V cup. It is so comfortable too as it has no bite. I will never play another mouthpiece again. If only I had this back in my youth. Pickett Brass has done an outstanding job in recreating Maynard's mouthpiece for the 50's/early 60's.
Copper Top, so great!!
With my new 5D copper top and 24 backbore i'm so happy ! The Sound have so much overtones an flexibility ! It's so good for lead playing and also intime jazz settings
Thanks so much !

Great mouthpiece! a considerable improvement over my Yamaha vizzutti model!
Pickett Custom Mouthpieces
I began working with Pickett Brass mouthpieces in 2014, and I must say the quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail is by far the most superior product I've dealt with. Peter is absolutely committed to his customers and goes out of his way to make sure you are provided the very best result. I would highly recommend Pickett Brass mouthpieces for all your trumpet and brass needs! Thanks so much, Peter!!
Best rim in the world.
My Pickett 6D is the best lead mouthpiece I've ever tried, bar none. Easier upper register than my Reeves 42S692 plus the Pickett rim. My 5BC is versatile and has a beautiful sound, perfect for small group jazz and solo work. Overall the best mouthpieces I've ever played. Definitely a happy customer!
