I play mostly for recreation these days - too busy with my "day job." I like a dark, smoky, textured sound when I play trumpet and flugelhorn in my small jazz combo. The Kelly really helps me capture what I aim to capture in terms of sound, phrasing, and feel. I can bend notes more easily on Kelly mouthpieces than any other type that I've tried to date, as well as capture that nice, airy, dark, smoky, textured sound that I love playing so much. As the result, I play and have been told that I play with even more feeling and a personalized sound.This is also very apparent when using the 6V on my flugelhorn. My sound and style of play is even more personalize and more expressive than on any other flugelhorn mouthpiece that I've tried to date. And, it is so nice to pick up one of your horns after a break in play and not have your mouthpiece feel like an ice cube. I can settle right back into playing any of my horns that I've put down for a song or two, or even for a set without feeling like I have to warm up the mouthpiece before playing. Great advantage.But, I also like to practice and play some classical music, and I've found that the Kelly mouthpieces are very nice for this application as well. They take a little of the brashness out of my brass playing, giving me a rounder, smoother, warmer sound.I own a Kelly 5C and 3C for trumpet, the 6V for flugelhorn, and am buying a 5C and 3C for my cornet while at this website today.

This is only the mouthpeice for you if it is really cold. This mouthpiece, despite being very cool, and feeling good to the lips, sounds pretty crappy. If you want good tone on the marching field, this is not the mouthpiece for you.

Outstanding value for the money - a real lip saver

By Sergeant

from Missouri

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

I am a full time buglar for a military honors team. In the winter I perform taps on almost a dailey basis, sometimes in freezing weather. The Kelly mouthpiece has been a life/lip saver while playing in this extreme cold. Took a little getting used to at first,but allowed a nice warm sound...didn't have to warm up a metal mouthpiece to produce a warm sound. Great for marching band in cold weather.

Great plastic alternative!

By The Boomerang

from Somewhere in Michigan

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

This is the fourth mouthpiece that I own. Before this I had a 7C that came with my trumpet, and two Schilkes (A 13A4A that I got in high school but don?t use, and a 20 that I bought last year). I had been using the 20 almost exclusively for about two years before I joined my college's pep band, where it is cold at almost every game. Because we get Kelly's for half price, I decided to get a Jet Black colored 3C. I am not disappointed at all. It is much lighter (which does brighten the tone a small amount, but it's nothing to worry about) and allows me to play louder and higher than I could with the 20. It is temperature unresponsive, so it won't freeze to your lips during cold weather. I haven't noticed any difference in tone or timbre than with playing with a Bach 3C, and it sounds great! If you need a good mouthpiece for not very much, Kelly would be a good choice to consider.

Amazing

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

I have had many friends use this mouthpieces and I was amazed at the sound that was being produced. With this mouthpiece you can hit high notes and stay in tune. This is a great buy. And yes it is true, it does not shatter when dropped (I don't recommend that you drop it if at all possible).

Good for cold

By trumpetdude

from raymore, MO

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

this mouthpiece is not a bad buy for how inexpensive it can be, but its really only good for playing in a marching band during the colder months. outside of marching band, I prefer an old fashion metal mouthpiece.

nice mouthpiece

By Lezwoymn

from West Islip, NY

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

I was looking for something lighter, as I also use a silent mute system. When I first got it, I was a little dissappointed, it was so light. But, it sounded the same as a bach 7c. It is also easier on the chops. Nice mouthpiece at a good price.

Very comfortable

By Joey-e4xoo

from Shawnee, KS

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

This is a very comfortable mouthpiece to play on, and since it doesn't get cold, I don't have to spend as much time warming up, and I can play for longer ammounts of time before resting.

Must Get One

By Kris B.

from South Hampton, NH

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

I was looking for a new mouthpiece that would help me reach the upper register in my jazz band. I saw this and bought it. Going from a Bach 7c to a Kelly 5c made such a difference. I was easily hitting high C. It keeps in tune surprisingly well too.

very cool

By Milesdavisfan

from Illinois

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

I have a friend with this mouthpiece and it is great for buzzing when you dont want to carry a metal mouthpiece with you. I was at the IMEA all state convention, and some of us trumpet players were able to attend a clinic with the one and only bobby shew. And guess what kind of mouthpiece he was playing on... A KEllY!

comfy

By Josh Parsons

from Elizabeth City, NC

Comments about Kelly Mouthpieces Trumpet Mouthpiece:

I bought this mouth piece and fell in "love" with it. It stays warm and doesnt bother ur lips like a metal mouth piece. I would suggest it for those seated higher in there sections, this mouth piece seems to work better on high notes hitting them and tone quality.
