Used Schagerl James Morrison Apredato gold plate
The Schagerl Apredato series uses a novel approach to mouthpiece design and implements an insulating layer of water between the mouthpiece body and the outer shell of the mouthpiece blank. The weight and insulating properties of water dampen vibration of the mouthpiece body, resulting in a more acoustically efficient mouthpiece. This mouthpiece is pre-owned, but in near-mint condition. Size is similar to a conventional 3C mouthpiece. This mouthpiece will be shipped dry and will need to be filled with water upon delivery for optimal use.
Schagerl Apredato Mouthpieces
The Apredato mouthpieces from Schagerl are a revolutionary step forward in mouthpiece design. This Apredato design was crafted with input from Prof. Hans Gansch (former Principal Trumpet Player of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra) and Thorsten Benkenstein (Lead Trumpet, North German Broadcast Big Band Hamburg, Germany).
The Schagerl Apredato Mouthpiece started with the intention of providing players with a fuller, darker sound and a deep, resonant quality without drastically changing the usual rim and cup shape. Most heavy mouthpieces can be difficult to play, having more resistance than normal. At first glance, the Schagerl Apredato mouthpieces appear to be like most heavy mouthpieces, but Schagerl took a different approach with the Apredato.
The mass of the Apredato is reduced to a minimum, then an attachment is fitted and filled with water. The attachment is coated in waterproof materials to prevent corrosion and sealed with rubber to prevent leaks.
