Vincent Bach Trumpet Mouthpiece (silver plate)

When selecting a mouthpiece, a brass instrumentalist should choose one with a solid, compact tone of large volume. A carefully selected Bach mouthpiece can help improve a player
s embouchure, attack, tonguing and endurance.

Professional musicians and advanced students prefer the musical results of large mouthpieces, such as the Bach 1B, 1C, 114C, 112B, 112C, 212C, 3C, which provide a maximum volume of tone with the least amount of effort. By opening up the lips so that they do not touch, the larger mouthpiece produces a clearer, purer tone. The large cup diameter also allows a greater portion of the lip to vibrate, producing a larger volume of tone, and keeps a player from forcing high tones by encouraging the correct functioning of the lip muscles. However, a student may find a medium-sized mouthpiece suitable, and our 7C mouthpiece is our most popular beginner mouthpiece.

Models with no letter designation have deep cups, #10 backbores, and produce a rich, full, clear tone.

“B” Models have medium deep cups, #7 backbores, and have a full, teutonic tone with great volume.

“C” Models have medium cups, #10 backbores, and are preferred by many players that alternate between Bb, C and D trumpet.

DModels have medium-shallow cups, #76 backbores, and produce a sparkling, brilliant tone, especially in the high register. Artists who continually play in the extreme high register use them to advantage.
