Pickett Brass
www.pickettbrass.com
661.772.7277

In 1998 Peter had just started his first mechanical engineering job out of school and joined up with the local community band in Lexington, Kentucky. Most of his engineering graduate studies have revolved around acoustic modeling of the trumpet shape, proving out several observations people had made in the past. However, there was very little work done on the structure and other aspects not associated with the air-column. After playing extensively for many years after completing a BA in music, he wanted to continue his engineering masters studies on trumpet acoustics.

In 1999, Peter bought his first lathe and made several simple heavy bottom caps for my trumpet. To be honest, the first goal was purely aesthetic - change the look of the horn from a traditional horn to a subtly different modern look. The results were as you might expect - too much mass in the wrong place is not desirable. But it was a great and fun start to what has developed into Pickett Brass as we have it today.

Today Pickett Brass uses several state of the art CNC machines and skilled finishing to produce the world class quality trim sets in a variety of weights and appearances. In addition, we are applying our years of playing and manufacturing experience with top professional names in trumpet playing today to produce truly one of a kind mouthpieces that are second to none in quality and design.
