(Published: January 20, 2012)
Anaheim, CA - January 20, 2012 -
The Louis Armstrong Legends Series Trumpet Mouthpiece is the first mouthpiece model added to the Legends Series Brass line. An exact reproduction of Armstrong's silver plated mouthpiece, expert brass mouthpiece maker, Greg Black, has improved the dynamics of the mouthpiece mold, while maintaining the authentic look, feel and sound of Armstrong's original.
Louis Armstrong was born in a poor section of New Orleans known as "the Battlefield" on August 4, 1901. By the time of his death in 1971, the man known around the world as Satchmo was widely recognized as a founding father of jazz-a uniquely American art form. His influence, as an artist and cultural icon, is universal, unmatched, and very much alive today.
Louis Armstrong's achievements are remarkable. During his career, he developed a way of playing jazz, as an instrumentalist and a vocalist, which has had an impact on all musicians to follow; recorded hit songs for five decades, and his music is still heard today on television and radio and in films; composed dozens of songs that have become jazz standards; performed an average of 300 concerts each year, with his frequent tours to all parts of the world earning him the nickname "Ambassador Satch," and became one of the first great celebrities of the twentieth century.
Through the years, Louis entertained millions, from heads of state and royalty to the kids on his stoop in Corona. Despite his fame, he remained a humble man and lived a simple life in a working-class neighborhood. To this day, everyone loves Louis Armstrong-just the mention of his name makes people smile.
The Louis Armstrong Legends Series Trumpet Mouthpiece features silver plating throughout, 17.40MM, .685" inner rim, a flat rim contour, medium wide rim thickness, double cup, cup depth, and a .140", 3.55MM bore.
