Bob Reeves Vintage Purviance Trumpet Mouthpiece

In honor of Carroll Purviance and due to popular demand, Bob Reeves decided to reissue this legendary mouthpiece using Carroll's original one-piece design, tooling, exterior shape, and numbering system.

Bob Reeves inherited all of the tooling from Carrol Purviance upon his death in 1969 and has continued to make Purviance mouthpieces with the original specifications to this day. Bob Reeves worked with Carroll Purviance for over 10 years, which is why Bob's shop is the only place where authentic Purviance mouthpieces can be obtained.

Bob Reeves Brass Mouthpieces obtained and has maintained the United States and International trademark for Purviance since 1973. Bob has always respected Purviance for the forward thinking mouthpiece designs of his day and is happy to honor Carroll with this re-issue.

Carroll Purviance came to Los Angeles in the 1930's after traveling for many years as a cornetist on the Chautaqua circuit. He was trained as a carpenter and studied machining with Dominick Calicchio (creator of the Calicchio trumpet), Roe Plimpton (Olds factory), Earl Strickler (great Besson repairman), and Earl Williams (creator of the Williams trombone).

A few years after he arrived in Los Angeles, he opened his shop and started working with players in developing new mouthpiece designs.
