A little of the back story 1st....  Ruptured the muscles in my embouchure in the early '70's. At the time was playing on a Zatola. Took the last 40 years off the trombone. Just starting now to build an entirely new/different embouchure and start playing again for fun.

The Zatola is long gone. Started with a Rudy Muck 23 which I find stuffy. Really like the Jet Tone Tommy Dorsey #1 I just picked up, but it is fatiguing on my muscles.

What are the choices for a small, shallow, v-cup mouthpiece these days? I'd like to try a real pea-shooter.

Check out Marcinkewicz,  they seem to have a more V shaped cup than others.

Some of the small Wicks are V-shaped too.

Don't automatically assume that a small mouthpiece will work for you.
