Interesting. But it would help to know the specifications / dimensions / near equivalents of the various mouthpieces which are only listed by numbers/letters. For instance, what is a "10C" ? :idk:

I know a few pro’s here in the Uk who have been used as guinea pigs during the development and have said they are very good quality materials and well made

Kelly Mouthpieces (the plastic MP company) used to market a mouthpiece line called the "TurboBlow." The magic was supposed to be that the shanks were rifled.

Is this the same product?

I did a Google search and found the manufacturers website. The text wasn’t particularly informative, but some of the images showed a plastic mouthpiece with twisting ridges down the backbone.

You don't need to search - the link was in the original post! Photos included. But not much information.

Thats just a shop, your side of the pond. I think this is probably what andym was talking about.

On their website they say "Brand Mouthpieces is the owner of the patent for the Turbobore which is also known as TurboBlow. Constructed by Romeo Adaci Germany R.I.P. Let’s go and try it!"

Thus I conclude the answer to afugates question is almost certainly YES.

Posanus, I think the link at the top is to a seller. The better pics I found were on the manufacturer’s web site. I’m having trouble finding the same pics again but they clearly showed twisting ridges in the bore that I can’t see on the original site.

Here’s the site I was looking at http://www.mundstuecke.ch/en/

Indeed you are right, Andy. But both Websites are short on information about the pieces (e.g., dimensions / specifications), other than descriptors like:
"Wide"
"Rich"
"Mellow"
"Medium"
"Smooth"
"Narrow"
...

I guess the model numbers refer to the Bach mouthpiece numbering system, a sort of (unfortunate) world standard.

It's also interesting that Brand Mundestücke is in Switzerland, but the plastic "rifled" Turbobore / TurboBlow mouthpieces are "Constructed by Romeo Adaci Germany R.I.P. "

Would love to learn how real-world trombonists like these pieces. :idk:

Aubrey Logan uses them. For a bit, she used it with the big “tone intensifier”, but now uses them as is.

I have a Brand trumpet mouthpiece and tried a bunch of their trumpet and trombone mouthpieces at NAMM one year. The trumpet mouthpieces are very good and super comfortable - very different to something a Kelly. I personally didn't get along very well with the trombone mouthpieces, but I don't get along with Greg Blacks or G&Ws either. The Brand mouthpieces are certainly good, and the tone booster thing makes a huge difference.

I am guessing "R.I.P" means rest in peace and that therefore means they went bust and Brand Mundstucke bought the patent from them. I'd put a small wager that although ownership and marketing is in Switzerland manufacture will be in China. There appears to be a shortage of Trombone pieces and the boosters so that probably means shipping issues from China?

I'll stick with Doug Elliot... I know where he lives!!!

Sorry for the late reply, everyone. No, the mouthpieces are not made and will not be made in China. It is my understanding that they will continue to be made as they have been. New product developments will be announced in the coming year, which should also yield a new manufacturer website. I can send comparison charts directly to anyone who is interested, just let me know. I too was skeptical until I tried them, and then became an enthusiastic vendor. I currently ship these all across the nation routinely!

The Brand 10C equates to a Denis Wick 10C with a diameter of 25.30mm and cup depth of 21.80mm.
