TRUMPET
I play a model YTR8335 LA 'Wayne Bergeron' YAMAHA trumpet, purchased new in 2015 at Atelier Pfeiffer. It came with a certificate of authenticity personally signed by Wayne Bergeron. I love this all round horn, especially for section playing and recording sessions. 

FLUGELHORN
In 2015 I was invited by YAMAHA MUSIC EUROPE to come to their artist atelier in Hamburg Germany. After some serious testing I picked the model Yamaha YFH-8310 Z flugelhorn developed by Bobby Shew. 

NEW TO THE FAMILY: 
The trumpet I made together with Miel Adams is very precious to me.  It was a once in a lifetime experience to make this horn while being mentored by Miel Adams. I will never forget it, it took me blood, sweat and tears and some really bad hangovers 🤣... This trumpet will stay in my collection forever. I'm so proud I helped building it! Click here to read more. 

MOUTHPIECES
I've only played on a few different mouthpieces. I started out on a Bach 1 1/2C because it came with the cornet (the one from the blue suitcase in my dad's office)  that was already in my family for a long time. When I got my first trumpet from my dad he also bought a Bach 1 1/2C with it that I used until I was 16 and started my study at the Conservatory of Amsterdam. My teacher there, the legendary lead trumpet player Jan Oosthof gave me a Bob Reeves 43M3/26 mouthpiece which I still love and play regularly especially on jazz gigs. I also own a Monette B4s mouthpiece that I bought with my Thomas Inderbinen trumpet. Those 2 mouthpieces where my main axe for almost a decade. Since then, I've gradually been moving to smaller mouthpieces. I still switch between the Bob Reeves 43ES and the Bob Reeves CF (Chuck Findley). I own different (read: a lot of 😜) versions of those 2 models. By the way I prefer a W rim, but also use the normal 43 rim.` For flugelhorn: I got a very good vintage version of the Bob Reeves 43F from Serge Plume which I use always on the flugelhorn.
