Pros: Great sound and projection.
Cons: Costly

 
A very versatile line of mouthpieces that allows you to change the cup, backbore, and receiver gap. Outstanding sound and projection.

Pros: good sound - good projection/intonation
Cons: low register unfocussed

 
Picked a 42S from a set of 42/43 sized rims - its impossible to hurt your lip on these mouthpieces and easy to play very loud with a good tone and easier high register. Apparently this is their most popular mouthpiece model. I did notice it transformed a cheap student trumpet and made it play better/more intune. Reeves do seem to have a larger receiver gap than most.

Pros: Excellent line across- Great Flugal, Cornet, Trumpet, and Lead Trumpet
Cons: Doesn't fit some horns w/ tone intensifiers

 
Amazing feeling on the lips; at any register leaving the player with a more relaxed playing style thus creating better music. The mps are also heavier than most which noticably effects the tone.

Pros: great sound, playability
Cons: none

 
The price variable is because I've had a lot of custom work done by Bob. Bob Reeves, in my opinion, is probably the greatest living brass mouthpiece maker. His products are superior, and he is not only knowledgeable but honest and forthright.

Pros: Rim feels good
Cons: none

 
Make sure that you really understand what you are looking for!
I say this because I have at least 3 different Bob Reeves mouthpieces.The 42S/692s now has too much back pressure for me so does the 42B/692s.The 42B is great in the lower and middle register but gets tight in the upper register. Why - because I requested something that gave me extra range up high. Upper register work requires work and patience.Mr.Reeves and Staff are Great and will give you a good fit if you keep in mind of what you really want.The problems I have are because I requested a tighter backbore which can be fixed if I send them back.
My 42C2J is absolutely great but it has a more open throat which plays like a Monette. These are great mouthpieces if you find your fit.
