Ryan performs on a Warburton 134-M trumpet and plays a Warburton Ryan Chapman signature mouthpiece top with a 30 throat and a NY backbore with a 30 throat for most commercial lead trumpet work. This is a piece with a wide mostly flat rim with a bit of a bite on the inside edge where it drops almost straight down into the cup. This gives it better articulation and accuracy than most commercial lead pieces on the market. Ryan just had a new custom piece made by Terry Warburton on August 13, 2013 and can be seen playing the piece on multiple YouTube videos.
For piccolo trumpet Ryan is experimenting with a version of the RC with a deeper cup, 30 throat, and using a 4SP backbore with a 30 throat on a Schilke P5-4B/G.
On Flugelhorn, Ryan is using a custom RC flugel piece with a 20 throat on an Adams F1 with a red brass bell with nickel flare.
