Bach Trumpet Mouthpieces in GoldGold plated versions of the famous Bach standard trumpet mouthpieces. Gold plating provides a very comfortable and flexible feel. Insist on a Genuine Bach Mouthpiece Bach mouthpieces are designed to meet every conceivable playing need and have for nearly three quarters of a century. A Bach mouthpiece will make a poor instrument play well, a good instrument play better. Volume and excellent intonation, ease of response in the high and low register, rich, uniform timbre throughout the range, and resistance calculated to increase the player's endurance—these characteristics explain why professional artists choose Bach. Because Bach mouthpieces are an accepted standard of quality, their numbers are familiar everywhere as designations for certain models and types. And, only genuine Bach mouthpieces bear the full inscription "VINCENT BACH" with one of the model numbers.

The bach 1.5C is a real winner..I have always played on it and always will.
I love my Bach 3C! It has wonderful projection, and tone quality unlike your hunk of junks or Schilke mouthpieces. The Bach 3C also has a great tone in the upper register (high C and up) and likewise for the lower register. I tend to frown upon the trumpet players with Schilkes and other bent dimes with holes in the middle, because most of the people who buy teeny tiny mouthpieces are looking for that "Grand C" or that bright sound for 1st part in jazz band.
Like athletes, artists and sales reps, we musicians often fall into the category of ";people who excel in their chosen skill but maybe didn't pay enough attention in high school science classes." So here are the facts about gold-plate, readily confirmed by any physics textbook...
Gold-plated mouthpieces DO NOT warm up quicker, sound different, dent easier, add more weight or give better response. They are still made from the same heavy piece of brass as a silver-plated mouthpiece, coated with an incredibly thin layer of gold instead of the usual incredibly thin layer of silver. The coating does not affect weight, warmth or tone - it represents only .001% of the mouthpiece mass. Don't listen to advertisers' hype or rumour-fed opinion. There are only three things about gold-plated mouthpieces that are TRUE...
1. They FEEL different - gold provides a slightly smoother, slicker, less "sticky," surface than silver. This is not good or bad, but bear in mind it will slide around on your lips a bit more if you're sweating under lights at a gig!
2. Gold SCRATCHES easily. It is a soft metal. If plated over brass, you'll hardly notice the colour change. If plated over silver or nickel, you will.
3. Gold LOOKS nicer. And this is the big one.
So if you're thinking of shelling out extra bucks for gold, at least be honest with yourself. Gold says "money," and it looks sexy and that's the single biggest reason to own it, end of story.
I played on Bach mouthpieces ever since I started playing, and I started on a 1-1/2C of all things, but quickly switched to a 3C, better for my skill level at the time. The 3C was great, perfect rim contour, diameter and depth. When I really started to get better, and started to play lead in jazz bands, I had to switch to a 3D, just a tad shallower to have a more brilliant, solid high range. The gold plating really adds nothing to your sound or feel, it just looks cool, which is what I was aiming for.
Any type of mouthpiece is going to sound different because everybody has a different body chemistry which includes the lips. So, to pull out all the whack legitimacy of science lets think about everybody's lips and how they are different. (maybe it is you who didn't pay attention in science). Me personally it creates a warmer sound than the silver mouthpiece I have and it also doesn't get as cold as fast. So, before you come on here thinking you are the stuff with your "so called" logistics of science think about different lips and how it would affect them... that's the end of story my friend.
