Eb/F Alto Trumpet Mouthpiece?

  • So, I bought a Getzen Eb/F Alto trumpet, just because it was really cheap and unusual. I will probably never play this horn for anything, but it's not quite lamp material, either. The valves work well and it plays OK, except the consistency of intonation is terrible in the lower part of the range. I don't really know where one would play one of these horns, except maybe in a drum and bugle corp to cover the french horn part of the range, or something like that.

    My question concerns the mouthpiece. The receiver seems to take a standard trumpet mp shank. I have tried the horn with the largest mp I have which is a 1.5C, and it doesn't seem quite right. Any suggestions for what mouthpiece might work for this thing?
