Carl Fischer is one of the most "seen trumpeters on the scene" today. Carl is currently touring with Billy Joel and is seen and heard by millions each year. Carl's past playing credits include ten years with Maynard Ferguson, Touring or performing with Blood, Sweat, and Tears, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, numerous big names (just do a search or the internet), and he also fronts his own group, Organic Groove.
Carl's musical demands are many; from screaming the lead book to laying down a thick flugel line. GR has designed an exciting set of mouthpieces that accomplish these tasks.
Carl Fischer Series Mouthpieces
Perhaps the most unique feature of the Fischer Mouthpieces is the rim contour. With a very soft bite, this smaller diameter cup actually feels wider than measured. Carl equates the feel to the GR 66 series diameter, or a conventional 3 diameter.
The rim is flat with a soft bite and a very high alpha angle. The highpoint is towards the outside and the bite is very soft. This combination makes the inside diameter feel larger than it actually is. The cup has a smaller volume and the throat entrance is large with very open playing characteristics.
Available in three configurations:
- CF "Z" - Carl's Lead Piece
- CF "Jazz" - All around work
- CF "DWB" Flugelhorn - Thick and dark with brilliance.
Carl Fischer Z Model Mouthpiece:
