OVERVIEW

Popular large shank mouthpiece by Bach.

High quality large shank trombone mouthpiece by Bach. Large shank mouthpieces fit in what are sometimes called symphony tenors - horns with a .547" bore like the Bach 42. These are common in the band world, and the most common size among orchestral players. Some jazzers use a big horn too but not many. Bass bones, .560" bore like a Bach 50, accept large shank mouthpieces as well. If your trombone takes a large shank piece, this one's for you.

  • 1-1/2GM / Deep / 27.00 mm / Medium wide, well rounded. / .319" / 800S / Larger throat and backbore than the No.112G results in less resistance, larger dynamic range, deeper, warmer sound.

  • 3G / Deep / 26.26 mm / Medium wide, well rounded. / .276" / 429 / Same rim shape and diameter as No.3 small shank tenor trombone, but with a deep bass trombone cup, throat, and backbore to facilitate pedal tones.

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

I've been playing trombone for over 50 years and have spent hundreds of dollars on mouthpieces including Schilkes, Elliotts, Laskeys, Hammonds, Yamahas, Marcinkiewicz and Greg Blacks. Recently, I began to play a little more tenor and I went through my large shank tenor mouthpiece collection. Much to my surprise I found a Bach 5G that had been included with a 42B I had recently bought off a friend played as well and sounded better than anything else in my shelf. I've been using it for a couple of months and couldn't be happier.

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

I am currently using several Bach Large Shank Mouthpieces on my bones. I use a 1-1/2G on my Yamaha YBL 830 Xeno Bass trombone for a good all rounder. My Bach 42BO Symphonic Tenor has seen use with a 5G with success, but I recently changed to a 6-1/2AL for ease of play in the upper range, with some loss of ease in the lower register. The change is working well!!

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

i have an older brother who was a euphonium player. when he graduated from high school, i, a trombonist, inherited a few mouthpieces from him. a 5G, 6 1/2al, and a couple 12c's i never use. i specifically tried the 5G against the 6 1/2 and prefer the tone the deeper cup of the 5G produces. i feel that it is a bit more flexible than the 6 1/2 in the sense that it aids the bass register. i pair it with a conn 88HO and it sings in the upper register and can really growl as a jazz bass.

I switched from a 6 1/2AL to the 5G and had a big change in tone quality. It's a very good mouthpiece.

Can't go wrong with a Bach 5G or a Schilke 51D

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

The 5G is a solid mouthpiece for Middle and High school trombone/Euphonium/Baritone players. This is one of two mouthpieces I recommend for all my students who play those instruments, and I'm a Euphonium player myself. The other mouthpiece I recommend to my kids is the Schilke 51D. Those two are the mainstay mouthpieces most recommended by people who know what they're talking about.

Good mouthpieces but not the best

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

Well, during my time trying out trombone mouthpieces, specifically bass trombone mouthpieces, I found them to be very moderate. The mouthpiece I tried was the 2G. It's a versatile mouthpiece. Both high and low registers can be played fairly easily, although the exterior design could be more eye-catching. My "visiting artist" from my high school was there and he was listening to which mouthpiece sounded best for me. He said through his experience the tone from the Bach mouthpieces is bland. He said there isn't a unique sound or an "edge" to it. The band department rep at the music store (who studied bass trombone) said they're a solid mouthpiece and that they are easy to play and work with. He said that the 2G is ok for me but since I'm a tuba major he said I don't really need a really good mouthpiece since it would be more work to get the unique sound and that I don't play bass trombone all the time. *Extra info (Top 3 mouthpieces (in order) I tried that was best for me were the "Denis Wick 0AL", "Marcinkiewicz 3" and "Bach 2G")
