The Trudel mouthpiece is truly special.

The Alain Trudel Signature Series mouthpiece's wide inner rim size and open throat allow a warm, broad sound even at fortissimo. Well-suited to orchestral and solo use, the Trudel mouthpiece has a deep cup and special rim contour for the sound and feeling of a much bigger mouthpiece, yet still has the secure, well-centered high range usually only possible with a smaller mouthpiece. It feels wide for comfort, but it's not a chop buster. Fairly thick rim for endurance. U-shaped deep cup with a v-shape going into the throat for a smooth, dark freeblowing tone with great overtones. Gold-plated rim and cup.

Alain Trudel is a true virtuoso who has been called the best trombonist in the world. He combines his humor and flair for drama with immense talent to delight audiences worldwide. He began playing with the Montreal Symphony at 16, and today he performs as a solo artist at as many as 100 recitals per year. He is an accomplished jazz and contemporary musician.

Yamaha's Signature Series mouthpieces come after years of collaborating with hundreds of the world's best players at their R&D Ateliers. These players were unsatisfied with the commercial models out there and knew the Yamaha technicians would deliver exactly the tone and response they wanted. The demand for these mouthpieces has grown, so Yamaha decided to offer a select lineup of these mouthpieces. Each Signature Series mouthpiece is produced on a precise, computer-controlled lathe to guarantee each one is exactly the same as the one used by its namesake.

  • 25.23mm inner diameter
  • Semi-round contour
  • Semi-thick
  • Deep cup depth
  • 7.15mm throat

Get the Alain Trudel sound--use the exact same mouthpiece as he does!

      Comments about Yamaha Alain Trudel Signature Series Trombone Mouthpiece:

      Believe it or not, Yamaha in their infinite wisdom doesn't bother including the shank size (small or large outer bore) of their 'Signature' mouthpieces. I spoke to three different departments at Musicians.com and multiple people at Yamaha. No in knew. I finally spoke to the head brass tech at Yamaha and he was 95% sure it was a large shank. It is indeed a large shank mouthpiece. I'm still blown away with that info not in the general description. Go figure... I haven't had the opportunity to play it yet, but put my review here soon.
