Derek Ganong

The Sparx 2* is a fantastic cornet mouthpiece that offers that traditional “British” sound but provides the playability of other American-oriented (but oftentimes American-sounding) mouthpieces. The standard length contributes to excellent intonation and just a touch of support behind a wonderfully open but also focused cup that retains core in the upper register. This design allows me to have a true British cornet sound but also the ability to keep up with those who employ more trumpet-centric designs. Thanks Ted!
