Bach Standard Series Trumpet Mouthpiece in SilverBach Standard Series mouthpieces are some of the most popular mouthpieces in the world among both students and professionals. They are categorized from large to small diameters numerically, and from the deepest to the shallowest cup alphabetically. Model 1 Bach Standard Series mouthpieces are the largest cup diameter, and letter A cups are the deepest. Progressively smaller diameter cups are deliniated through number 20 and shallower cup depths are deliniated through letter F.Vincent Bach was a rare combination of artist and engineer. A mechanical genius and acclaimed trumpet soloist, his instruments and mouthpieces are used today in every major studio and orchestra in the world. Bach personally designed the tools and composed the plans that continue to set the high standards for making all Bach products today.

The same perfect Bach 5C mouthpiece I bought (and misplaced) over thirty years ago! I needed to know what had changed after not playing for a long time. The Bach 7C that I also used back then seems less responsive than back in the day. Now I know it was me so I can get to the business of rebuilding and playing again!
Though the Bach lineup makes little sense, with differing rim contours and cup shapes throughout the different sizes, they are all intelligently designed - you just have to try them and see what works for you! The 1 1/2 C did not agree with me, as its rim did not match me and I didn't like how attacks sounded on it. However, the 1 1/4 C seems to be just the ticket! I get a much richer sound out of it, along with good projection and surprising comfort. As an added bonus, blending with those around me is now much easier, as they also play larger Bach mouthpieces.
The Vincent Bach trumpet mouthpiece is the de facto standard, and for good reason. It's a versatile line that includes a size to fit just about any player, and most professionals have used a Bach at some point in their career. That being said, the line is not known for its consistency. For example, the rim circumference sizes go from 1 to 10.5, largest to smallest. This is fairly consistent, although the difference is not precisely linear or exponential. But the cup depth, indicated by the letters A through E (deepest through shallowest) is not consistent among the rim circumferences. Inexplicably, the 3C cup is far shallower than the 5C through 7C cups. Also, some rim sizes come with no letter (even deeper than the A) or an X, which is exclusive to the 1X size and falls between the "no letter" and A cup in depth. So you can probably find your mouthpiece from Bach, but it'll take some time to test and discuss with other players.
Bach mouthpieces are always the best quality and fairly priced. I started out on a 7C, of course, and then my instructor recommended a 3C for a fuller sound. When I wanted a mouthpiece to more accommodate the higher register, my instructor insisted that a deeper, larger mouthpiece is better for higher notes, if you just "squeeze" them out quietly. Anything along the lines of a 3C mouthpiece is indeed one of the best all around mouthpieces for a richer, more full tone.
Bach mouthpieces are known amount professionals for not the quality but the slope in the cup to the rim. The steeper the cut from the rim to the cup determines the sharpness of an articulation and that?s why I would recommend Bach. It is very clear. I have played on several mouthpieces of which the 3c I favor for a medium range.
