Ryan Chapman is a Signature Artist for Warburton Musical Products and exclusively  plays Warburton mouthpieces. Ryan’s main commercial setup is the 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.
