Eddie Severn Trumpeter 



Eddie talks about the horns and mouthpieces he uses and why.


"I am playing on a custom prototype Bb Trumpet by Fred Powell at Powell Custom Trumpets. The hor is set up to play very efficiently and has  avery similar feel to my old Bach Model 38 Medium Bore horn.


I have a 1960’s Couesnon Flugelhorns which I use a Charlie Melk leadpipe with. Not only does it mean that the horn takes a standard mouthpiece shank but the response and intonation are better too. There is  simply no modern Flugelhorn that feels and sounds like an old Couesnon. If I ever find one I’ll be endorsing it!


I use mouthpieces of my own design from my company Pro Brass Mouthpieces
