Up at the shop, Bob’s long-running classical mouthpiece project is nearing its conclusion. Over the last few months we have provided a few prototypes of our new Classical Series Trumpet Mouthpieces to players and the pieces created quite a buzz at our ITG booth last month.

Now, we are proud to announce the official release of these mouthpieces.  Starting today we will begin taking pre-orders for the 1-1/2C and 3C models of the Classical Series Trumpet mouthpieces that will ship on July 1st.

Be one of the first to try prototypes of Bob’s new line of Classical Mouthpieces. The list of players already in line to get these pieces when they will be released later this year is quite astounding. You can play these pieces to find out yourself why we already have a waiting list for the first production run.

Consultations

Our staff will be available at the booth for equipment consultations. Bob Reeves will be at the booth Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and is more than happy to share his knowledge of equipment and throw in some great stories! Brett and John will be available the entire show for equipment consultations (although their stories are not nearly as entertaining as Bob’s!).

Valve alignment

Have you always wanted a Bob Reeves Patented Valve Alignment but didn’t want to ship your trumpet to our shop? You are in luck because we will be doing alignments at the conference. Just drop your horn off at our booth and you can pick it up the next day! Bob configured a small travel lathe that we can take on the road allowing us to do most of the things that we can do in our shop.

We are only doing a limited number of alignments and reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you want to do an alignment, call (800-837-0980) or email us (info@bobreeves.com) right away to secure your slot. A few of the days are already close to being full.

  • Tuesday, May 22nd – Spots Available
  • Wednesday, May 23rd – Spots Available
  • Thursday, May 24th – Just a few slots left!
  • Friday, May 25th – 1 slot left!

Not sure if you need an alignment? Bring your trumpet by our booth and we will be happy to measure it to show you how far out of alignment it is at no charge.

Yoshino Kazutaka Adviser's Day

Try Bob Reeves Mouthpieces and prototypes of our new classical line this weekend!

For all our Japanese customers , this coming Saturday and Sunday (31-March and 1-April)  Mr. Yoshino Kazutaka, the trumpet specialist at our Japanese dealer Joy Brass, will be holding clinics at Miki Gakki in Osaka.

This will be a great opportunity to try Bob Reeves mouthpieces. Mr. Kazutaka will have a large selection with him and you can take advantage of his extensive knowledge of our pieces.

Among the selection of pieces will be two prototype mouthpieces from our upcoming classical line — a 3C and a 1 1/2C. These pieces are engineered to have a classic sound and feel but with the benefit of modern improvements in mouthpiece design. Joy Brass will be taking pre-orders at this event for our new mouthpieces.

Mr. Kazutaka is the trumpet specialist at Joy Brass and as such is very knowledgeable of trumpet playing and the Bob Reeves line of mouthpieces.  He has personally worked with us for many years and has acted as liaison for many Japanese customers looking for custom work. We hope you can take advantage of this great opportunity.
