Due to a metal allergie, I replaced my standard TA1 with its acrylic version mounted on an heavy backbore. I have got the same feeling on the trumpet. Exactly what I needed. Many thanks to Josh for his perfect advices and kind support!

Softer feel on my face, without sacrificing a great sound and intimation!
What a great mouthpiece top. It's perfect for those of us with metal allergies, and it is extremely comfortable. It also helps me get that warm, dark sound I'm looking for with my large bore Adams A9. Awesome!
Great mouthpiece. Comfortable rim, especially on tired chops. Somehow softer in feel than metal...but more brilliant sound than any other non-metal mouthpiece I've tried.
I really like Trent's new Acrylic Top. I chose the 7B for my needs. It gives me the sound I'm looking for and the rim is really comfortable. I also really liked the feel of the acrylic surface and it fit perfectly on my Warburton stem. Cool colors too! Highly recommend this top if you're looking for something a little different!
I have a silver allergy which makes trying out new mouthpieces expensive. I found ACB and gave them a try because the prices were so competitive. It's ended up being the best decision I could've made. I've got two acrylic tops and the heavy backbore to help with sound loss from the acrylic. I haven't noticed any loss in sound yet and don't think I ever will. I have no problem playing the acrylic pieces and will definitely be ordering a piccolo piece and possibly a C piece in the future.
The item came as described except for faded white letting, but no big deal on that. Definitely got a great deal from Black Friday/Cyber MOnday sales. I've found ACB designed rims to be far more comfortable for me; if you like Bach designs, Trent's classic sizes can be quite an improvement.
Recently purchased a Delrin top cut to a MV3CB , similar to the regular mouthpiece top I already have. True to form, it is a great addition to my mouthpieces, especially for playing outside in cooler/cold weather.
