Since its inception, the cornet section of the Oakland Brass Band has been striving to deliver a warm sound with good blend. Being a US-based band with the typical ?trumpet-tone? mentality instilled in many of the players, this has occasionally proved a bit of a challenge. Recently, some of our cornetists have begun using the Sparx mouthpiece in their playing. Both tone and intonation have improved as a result. Thanks, Ted, for making such a fine product available to the brass band community!
