A carefully selected Bach mouthpiece can help improve a trombone player's embouchure, attack, tonguing and endurance.

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.

"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

glorious

By Chris-D_BAi

from Jersey Shore

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

As most people know, you can't tell someone what mouthpiece to use. Everybody is different. The Bach 1G was great choice for me. I was fighting the Greg Black 1 1/2G I was given when playing low, I needed a wider cup and rim diameter and this mouthpiece was just the right fit. For me this mouthpiece plays evenly in all registers with little tuning issues, it is nice to be able to play low B with very little effort, and it opened up my Bach 50B3O giving me a glorious sound/tone in all registers. For me it takes very little effort to play on the 1G but I worked my way down over many years starting with a 2G/Yamaha 58. You need to have a very strong embouchure to play on this mouthpiece, I love it and would recommend it to anybody who needs a bigger mouthpiece than a 1 1/2G. Choosing a mouthpiece is easy, but the right one is hard to find, and this one happens to be the right one for me.

Eh...

By Dagmar

from Canton, NC USA

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

I have played on a Bach 5G for 3 years. Its tone was brash, and spit tended to collect in the cup and fuzz up my sound. After switching to a Schilke, the problems went away. However, a Bach is excellent for beginning euphonium/baritone horn players as it doesn't take mature air or embouchure to power.

awesome mouthpiece

By Tyler Roberts

from Swansboro NC

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

It has a very open sound. Great for all ranges on trombone. I'm popping a high D out easily now and pedal tones are easy and full. It does take a lot more air than a 6 1/2 AL but it is worth it. Great for solos, marching band, jazz, and ensemble use. I don't recommend it for beginners because it does take air support.

nice

By Elmo

from Silver City NM

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

This is great, lasts long, looks cool, plays pure, feels great, and sounds awesome! I recommend a 4g for any one with a tenor and a 1g for anyone on the bass! The best thing is that it's such a great mouthpiece for a very low price. These mouthpieces can last forever if properly taken care of.

will shake the stand

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

I unwittingly bought a 1G. Oh My God! I now play low F's with freakish power! Perfect for bass or low parts. the only issue I have with it is the rim.

One excellent mouthpiece

By The Big Gun

from Lansing, MI

Comments about Bach Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece:

This is one excellent mouthpiece. A must for every TRUE bass trombone player. Low and pedal tones resonate beautifully and with great sound. It is more difficult to reach high notes, though. A beginning bass trombone player should get a 1-1/2G to get the feel, and progress to the 1G when you are ready! I prefer this to any other bass trombone mouthpiece out there -- including the custom professional mouthpieces which can cost over $1000!
