Heavyweight Profile Lends Some Serious Punching Power You’re serious about your tone, and so is Yamaha. The company developed the TR-16C4-GP for professionals who require an extra-focused sound. This mouthpiece has the same internal dimensions as the standard TR-16C4. It carries a larger rim design and a medium cup depth, which deliver comfortable playability throughout the horn’s entire register. Sweetwater trumpeters are particularly pleased with the amount of sound this mouthpiece can produce! You’ll have enough power at your disposal to announce your arrival on any stage. Meanwhile, the Heavyweight outer profile adds extra mass on the outside for a concentrated sound. Musicians worldwide trust their tone to Yamaha mouthpieces — join the legion of Yamaha faithful with a TR-16C4-GP trumpet mouthpiece.
Designed with professionals in mind Professional symphonic and orchestra players require a tone that’s entirely separate from jazz and big band players. Yamaha GP Series trumpet mouthpieces feature specialized design elements that give players the feel, response, and tone needed to fit in with the world’s most famous orchestras. Most noticeable is the redesigned outer profile. The extra external mass works to darken and focus the tone into a formidable sonic weapon. Next, each GP Series mouthpiece has an extra-heavy gold-plated cup and rim. Gold plating does not meaningfully impact the sound. Instead, a gold-plated mouthpiece provides a smoother feel that some players prefer over silver. Players who prefer a more concentrated sound will love Yamaha GP Series trumpet mouthpieces.
