Hello fellow trombonists,
I recently began working with Antonio Rapacciuolo of AR Mouthpieces and I am excited to announce that we have come out with something special for small-bore trombones. Antonio does have a full range of classical, and bass trombone mouthpieces also that are fantastic. If you would like more information on the pieces check out www.arresonance.com, and  https://www.facebook.com/arresonancesrl/. There are already 40-50 of them floating around the midwest for trumpet and now the same is happening for trombones. Antonio has a very unique two-piece mouthpiece system which allows you to tailor the piece to play the way you are used to rather than having to adjust to the blow of the piece. From my few weeks of playing on my piece I have noticed improvements in intonation, articulation and sound that I was not getting before. If you would like more information please send me an email, I do not get to check this forum too often. Please email me at

They definitely look the shiznit, and appear to be priced accordingly.  I guess the competition with Monette extends beyond the name.

The website doesn't yet have too many details regarding the trombone mouthpieces; what sort of sizes are being offered in the small bore range?

All of the small shank pieces have the same cup which is a C cup but not too shallow, and slightly V-Shaped. The throat is 6mm. We will be trying out different throat sizes eventually but for now there is no need for it. I've currently had 4 guys in Chicago come out to my place and they all left with a mouthpiece so the design is working great. There are 5 different backbores that we narrowed down from 9. You would need to try 3 of them to get a sense of which one fits your playing the best but we can probably do a good estimate by talking to you.
