Yes, we have a stack of listings for Vegas-based artists, including this one - a custom trumpet mouthpiece designed for Las Vegas legend Dave Perrico. This is a Kanstul-made replica copied from Dave's own custom mouthpiece, originally made for him by the great Jerry Callet. Trumpet, Conductor, award-Winning composer is a native of Youngstown, Ohio but since relocating to Las Vegas in 2004, Perrico has become one of this town's most in-demand musicians, with the Las Vegas Review-Journal naming David Perrico - Pop Evolution Best of Las Vegas 2013 award winner. Dave performed internationally with the legendary Tommy Dorsey Orchestra as soloist and road manager, before his work in Las Vegas with such headliners as Donny & Marie, Natalie Cole, Cirque du Soleil's Viva Elvis, Gladys Knight, The Rat Pack Is Back, Phantom of The Opera, Toni Braxton, and numerous others. As a composer, Perrico has received national awards for original Jazz & Symphonic compositions, and a spotlight in the PBS series ArtScene with his 20-piece band Pop Evolution that headlined the Stratosphere & Palms.
Perrico also served as Music Director and lead trumpet for Paul Shaffer at Caesars Palace, as well as MD for the shows Pin Up and ALICE. He has 15 CD and 5 DVD recording credits, including The Family Guy Live DVD, and the Grammy winning album One Voice by Gladys Knight. Dave also leads the new Raiders Band, so be listening for him during the game! The mouthpiece in this listing is based on the original Callet Superchops 1.
It has a medium-shallow cup, 27 throat, and Jerry's time tested #4 backbore. Cup diameter is in the practical and familiar 7C range. This mouthpiece has slightly different contour leading to the throat, as shown in YELLOW in the graphic comparing it to the original. BIG sound and fabulous low register attacks. This is on a standard "Bach"-style blank, and it is marked KANSTUL ANAHEIM PERRICO 1.
This is a solid lead piece. Advanced students - play it in your high school jazz band and your band director won't know you're not playing that other mouthpiece he told you to play...But they'll love what they hear! Adult players, get that sizzle & easy upper register, and be the envy of your section mates!
