"Review of the kelly 7c Trumpet mouthpiece."

In my opinion the whole kelly plastic mouthpieces are value for money. They are built to the exact shape as the metalic mouthpieces of the same type and if blindfolded, it is hard to tell the difference. Many frown upon people that use plastic mouthpieces, but they are ideal for testing different sizes before going ahead and buying the metal version (as i did). It is far cheaper to buy a few kelly plastic mouthpieces to try out than it is to chose a more expensive metal mouthpiece willy-nilly. They are ideal, if, as i am, you are an instrumental teacher because the whole range can be kept for giving out to students to borrow. They are lightweight so if dropped (and I have) the just seem to bounce.

Playing a cold metal mouthpiece early in the morning is a horrible experience as we all know, and this is the first thing I noticed with these type of mouthpiece. YOU WONT GET FROSTBITE ON YOUR LIPS, Its great.

Overall the kelly mouthpiece range is great value and sound quality is only noticable to those that are in very good practice. I can advise them to students and for short term use. Becuase they look perhaps a bit tacky shoved in the end of a £1000 trumpet, perhaps they should be for that, only short term use. For performances I should also advise against these as metal ones look far better and you cant see all the gross lip vibrations through them like you can with the clear plastic version

    If it eases the need to make all those duck-sounds through it to warm it, and your lips, up, then it's good; if it means you see the "gross lip vibrations" perhaps it's not so good... A little more context for your review would get you a higher rating or three.
