Equipment

 

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

 

"My Bb Trumpet is made by Fred Powell and is based on an old Bach Strad model 38 medium bore which in played for may years. I picked up this horn about five years ago and find I can play just about any style on it from lead to jazz solos as well as more legit things. I find that the slightly smaller bore gives me more control through the partials and because of the way my chops are set the horn does not feel particularly small to me at all.

 

I have a 1960’s Couesnon Flugelhorn with a Charlie Melk leadpipe which i use for solo small group playing. I also play on a Bach Stradivarius model 180 Flugelhorn which I like to use  when playing in a section.

 

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