The E-2 is designed for the tenor trombone player that doubles on bass trombone or for those who prefer a larger rimmed mouthpiece. With a more classic outside dimension, weight and rim contours and funnel shaped cup, this mouthpiece is at home in very large ensembles. The large cup volume is balanced with a more traditional size throat that adds in stability, core, articulation, and projection.
Alan Baer and Giddings and Webster have taken the original signature model mouthpiece and put a flatter narrower rim on it. In addition to this we have added a bit of mass around the throat of the mouthpiece, and we have made the mouthpiece out of 15-5 stainless steel. All of this combined makes a mouthpiece that is for folks who like a traditional flat rim with a sharper inner bite for their orchestral tuba playing needs. The 15-5 stainless steel is a high quality aerospace material that is harder than our regular 304 stainless steel mouthpieces.
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 enduranceâthese characteristics explain why professional artists choose Bach.
