Ian Bousfield

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

In 2013 I developed the 4147-IB Tenor trombone with Ian Bousfield for Getzen Instrument Co. At the time Ian had been working on developing a mouthpiece line that had started before the instrument designwork.

Fast forward to 2015 and discussions were had about the possiblity of moving manufacturing to the USA with GSI LLC (Griego Sound Inventions LLC) and pushing the designs forward. This led me to work on his mouthpiece line.

There are many new creations that are going to be offered within his line of mouthpieces. The redesign brought new aspects that allow us to bring his complete approach to the forefront. From small changes to the outside of the mouthpiece to more drastic internal changes, the pieces play great.

We are working with our dealer/distributor network to make sure these are near you to test. If your local dealers do not have them, ask them to get them for you.

Where to Buy CS Models

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

The 5 CS, 1 CS, and 7 CS are designed around the Getzen Custom Series trombones. They do however work quite well on most trombones and I’ve been getting a lot of requests of “how do I purchase this model, because I can’t find them on your website?”.

These models are sold exclusively through Getzen dealers and you can order through your local Getzen Dealer. Please go here to find a dealer.

Griego-Ashton Shipping now!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

We’ve been shipping the piccolo mouthpieces for a while, and the trumpet mouthpieces are shipping as well. Remember to ask your local dealers to stock them, bricks and mortar places offer return policies that we can not being such a small manufacturer. The resonance is everything Mr. Ashton wants and approves. These mouthpieces are a big step forward in Mr. Ashton’s design concept and we hope you enjoy them for many years to come.

We had a great week in the Edwards booth having people test the Griego Line. Glad so many of you enjoyed them. We soft launched the Griego-Ashton trumpet mouthpieces models 1, 2, 3, 4 and received some great feedback. We will have these up on the site as soon as I finish the trumpet and cornet shank piccolo mouthpieces.
