Bach mouthpieces are designed to meet every conceivable playing need and have been 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 the best professional artists choose Bach.

"Choosing the perfect mouthpiece is often more difficult than choosing the perfect instrument. Your success as a musician depends on the choice of equipment that will do justice to your capabilities." --Vincent Bach

Bach #10 Horn mouthpiece

By Eric A. Johnson

from Atlantic, Iowa

Comments about Bach French Horn Mouthpiece:

I recently went back to the Bach #10 from the Giardinelli C12 to help with the type of playing I am now doing. A move from large ensemble section playing (usually on 2 or 4th) to Horn quartet, show pit, brass quintet and some solo work. The Bach #10 is close to the Giardinelli C12. The throat is the same size and the cup depth is very close also. The difference is in the inside cup diameter and rim contour. The Giardinelli C12 is 17.50 mm, while the Bach # is 16.87mm for inside rim diameter. The Giardinelli rim is narrow with a high point on the outside of the rim (reverse peak). The Bach has a wider somewhat, flat rim with much less peak. The intonation and tone quality is the same on both. The Bach #10 gives me the same qualities I have always liked in the Giardinelli C12, but provides more support in the upper range and more endurance. I can do the something on both mouthpieces, I can just do it longer on the Bach.

Perfect

By JC-N5zC5

from Secaucus, NJ

Comments about Bach French Horn Mouthpiece:

I recommend Bach mouthpieces to everyone. Bach french horns may not be the best, but they make some of the best mouthpieces out there. Holton mouthpieces and other "top brands" are thin and can not produce a robust sound needed by a horn player. I had purchased a model 12 during my freshmen year. It is a smaller mouthpiece that improves anyone's high register and produces a brighter tone. During my junior year I purchased a model 10 and it was by far the best all around mouthpiece I have ever used. It produces a solid dark tone with a good blend. I personally love these mouthpieces and plan to purchase a 7s this week. This mouthpiece is interesting because it is a medium-large sized mouthpiece with a shallow cup. I plan to use it in the upcoming marching band season.

Great improvement for up and coming musicians.

By Jonathan Durst

from Garland, TX, USA

Comments about Bach French Horn Mouthpiece:

I received a Bach mouthpiece as a gift a few years ago. I had been playing on a small Holton mouthpiece. This mouthpiece provided a much darker tone, improved range, and improved air volume. It allowed me to hold a tone longer as well. I was able to increase my volume thanks to the greater size of the bore in the mouthpiece. You can't go wrong here.
