Shop Visitor – Rick Baptist

Rick Baptist, Bob Reeves, & John

Rick, Bob, & John at the shop.

We had L.A. trumpet player Rick Baptist come up to the shop the other day to work on a couple of piccolo trumpet mouthpieces.  Rick used the piccolo mouthpieces on a recent movie session and he let us know they did the trick!

One of the best things about being in this business so long (over 40 years now) is that you can see the progress of trumpet players throughout their careers. I remember making Rick’s first piece when he was just starting out in Vegas…I won’t say how many years ago that was…and now he’s one of the most in-demand trumpet players in L.A.  I love working with young trumpet students because they too will be top-call players.
