GB NY Trombone Mouthpiece
[GregBlack]

Once regarded as the premiere mouthpieces for brass players, i.e., trombone, and bass trombone, availability of GB mouthpieces are very scarce and often impossible to obtain. The large selection of GB mouthpieces and its designs orginiated from the Giardinelli, NYC days. It was there that Bob Giardinelli designed the world reknowned Giardinelli Mouthpiece. GB Mouthpieces incorporate the designs and specs of that of Giardinelli and Bach Mouthpieces.  All mouthpieces are outsourced and manufactured by Warburton Musical Products, Fla.  Blanks are CNC made and then shipped to Greg Black where  “the finishing touches” are completed, i.e., stamping, backbore,cup alterations, and buffing. Once this is completed, pieces are sent to either The BrassLab, Brooklyn, NY, or Stork Mouthpieces, Vermont for plating.  Accuracy is extremely marginal.

These mouthpieces where introducted after NY Philharmonic Principal Trombonist, Joe Alessi departed ways from Greg Black.

Griego-Alessi"

"Our primary objective in creating the Griego-Alessi line was to provide you with not only a great mouthpiece, but also a great mouthpiece series. We have taken great care to keep the specifications of the Griego-Alessi mouthpieces exact and to Joseph Alessi's high standards."

Greg Black was not legally premitted to make or distribute the "Alessi" Series, which Joe Alessi designed and endorsed. Hence the NY Series Mouthpieces where made. They are unlike the vintage "Aless" Series.
