I'm a trumpet player and I have a jupiter soprano trombone. I wanted to know if i could fit a trombone moutpiece on this instrument. If so, what kind should i get for a relatively cheap price? Also, if there is no way to fit a tbone mouthpiece on the soprano tbone then is there anything you would suggest that would get me a big dark tbone sound? I dont want my soprano trombone to sound like a slide trumpet.

I would recommend something big like a Schilke 24, perhaps a cornet-like mouthpiece with a trumpet shank.A Bach 5V may also work well, as it is a deep, mellow sounding V-cup mouthpiece - which would likely work well on the cornet, only for trumpet or soprano trombone.

No, it uses a trumpet mouthpiece. It will sound like a slide trumpet, because that is what it is. I guess you can find the biggest, deepest, widest trumpet mouthpiece you can find...

"It will sound like a slide trumpet, because that is what it is..."

I beg to differ. A slide trumpet is a Renaissance instrument with a single slide, in which the entire instrument was pushed or pulled to alter pitches. The slide (kind of like a fulgelhorn leadpipe) is not long enough to play chromatically.

Here is a picture link.

A soprano trombone should not be confused as a slide trumpet. Sure it uses a mouthpiece with a trumpet shank and is normally played by a trumpet player, but a good soprano trombone sound has a sweeter, yet more robust sound - more like you would expect a "normal" trombone to sound like. The difference is in the taper and shape of the instrument, due to the inclusion of a slide rather than valves.

I agree. Now a days when I show people my soprano trombone its always referred to as a slide trumpet. I try to use soprano trombone as often as possible because your right. the slide trumpet is totally different. Its just like saying a bass trumpet was actually a valve trombone. Although the terms seem interchangeable.

yeah i agree. i'm not that good at the soprano. mostly because of my lack of
slide training. but i think it definatly deserves a place in brass. its such an awesome instrument. I was actually thinking about investing in a miraphone. could anyone fill me in on how this compares to the jupiter?

- does it sound more like a tbone than the jupiter?
- does it have a tuning slide?
- does the slide feel as sticky as the jupiters?
- is that silver slide as cool as i think it is?

a few points...

and what is this jean baptist soprano??? I've never heard of this company.
