Working with Warburton Music Products, Bill has designed two outstanding mouthpieces.
WCC Signature (William C. Carmichael)
- The Drop V-Cup
professional players, Warburton Music Products is one of the most
respected names in the industry. What distinguish Warburton
mouthpieces apart from others are their precision machining and
their consistency. For the professional player, it's imperative that each
mouthpiece play and feel exactly the same.
The Drop V-Cup Mouthpiece
This is the mouthpiece that Bill now uses. The Drop V-Cup is for players that like the advantages of a straight V-cup, like the MF Giardinelli 1, but would like more stability and accuracy while playing in the mid and upper registers and allowing bigger lower tones.
There are two two versions. The Drop V1 has a little less step down just under the rim. The Drop V2 has a little more step down under the rim.
The Drop V-Cup is also available with a composite rim. Bill's personal mouthpiece has the composite rim.
- Inner diameter: .600
- Throat Size: 27
- Cup type: Drop Straight V-Cup

The WCC Signature Mouthpiece
This is the original- the very popular WCC Signature- since 2004, and still selling strong. The WCC top is designed for the lead trumpet player desiring a big
sound in the low register and a full-bodied sound in the upper
register that does not thin out. One of the main attributes of this
mouthpiece is the cushion rim. This rim is a little larger in width
making it easy on your chops. Even though the inner diameter is
rather small, the mouthpiece does not feel that way at all.
The WCC Signature plays great and is recommended to
anyone who is looking for an edge in their sound.
Inside Diameter: .590" (feels larger)
Outside Diameter: 1.100"
Cup type: Shallow modified "V"
The mouthpieces are available in Bill's Store.
