"Whether it’s playing in the Pittsburgh Symphony or making my insane overdubs, I simply couldn’t do what I do without Greg’s unparalleled artistry and craftsmanship."
"The care and craftsmanship that Greg puts into his work produces the most consistently comfortable and best sounding mouthpieces I’ve ever played. Greg Black mouthpieces have been a part of my musical life since my early New York days and will continue with me throughout the rest of my career."
"I’ve been playing Greg Black Mouthpieces for well over 20 years. I have tried other mouthpieces throughout my career, but none come close to the craftsmanship, response and sound of Greg’s. His mouthpieces make it so much easier for me to be able to achieve the sound, flexibility, nuance and musicality that I hear in my head and be able to produce it through my horn."
"As a professional musician, my livelihood depends upon my ability to switch between many different musical genres. For the past 25 years, whether I'm on the road with the Count Basie orchestra, playing a Broadway show, or supporting an Artist from the pit, Greg's masterful craftsmanship has allowed me to find my sound in any musical situation."
"I never thought mouthpieces made any difference to my playing, but since switching to my Greg Black 5G I can honestly say that my playing has improved each day. The beautifully designed mouthpiece gives a unique sense of flexibility and ease, whilst also giving strength and power. The support from such a friendly business has been incredible; I am so thankful!"
"Greg Black Mouthpieces provide the depth of sound I love and facilitates the versatility I require for the various musical situations in which I find myself. Greg’s attention to detail, willingness to listen to what the player desires and finding a solution has made making music easier and playing the trumpet a lot more fun."
