Bach Standard Series mouthpieces are some of the most popular mouthpieces in the world among both students and professionals.

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

I've played a new Bach 7C for trumpet, old small letter 7C-FL Flugelhorn piece, and small letter Mt Vernon trumpet mouthpiece. I personally, think the older pieces have a nicer feel and prefer those to the new ones (rim has less "bite"). I also recommend Schilke and Stork, in general, their new pieces work better for me (range, tone)and are more comfortable then the new Bach ones (I play with smaller pieces, so can't fairly rate larger pieces like the Bach 1C).

It is THE most used mouthpiece around, so Bach makes 7C mouthpieces DAILY like birthday cakes from Costco. Simply, it is the most made mouthpiece, so at some times it can be considered free.

Why do people love 7Cs so much? Mainly from the ideology that the 7C is the most available near-well-rounded mouthpiece out there. It is (so it seems) not too shallow and not too deep. The rim diameter is not too wide or small. The bore is not too wide or small. And their still trying to create a pipe to create an even gap between the mouthpiece and the leadpipe. All in all, not too "this" but not too "that".

Why did I give such a low rating to a mouthpiece that is everybody's touchstone?:

1. IT IS NOT THE MOST WELL-ROUNDED MOUTHPIECE!! If you took the time to do precise measurements on this mouthpiece, the bore is larger than it needs to be.

2. It's more shallow than it needs to be.

3. And the rim diameter is smaller than it needs to be.

4. But most importantly, the gap between the end of the mouthpiece and the leadpipe is too wide.

Of course not many players are able to get even a high C on such a thing! Even if you would, you would be hurting yourself. Your tone wouldn't be that good either, because of the fourth problem (weak vibrations in the trumpet, thus weak sound, and everything falls apart).

This is my opinion, and you can contradict it however you want and as many times. However, the reality is irrefutable.

Do yourself a favor, and get a 3C instead. It is what ALL principal orchestral trumpet players play.

BaCH 3cw MOUTHPIECE

By JOHN PHIPPS

from Clearwater Fla.

Comments about Bach Standard Series Trumpet Mouthpiece in Silver:

AFTER A WEEK OF PRACTICING HIGH RANGE IS STILL VERY DIFFICULT. COMING FROM A 7D IS TAKING A LOT OF AIR. THE TONE IS MUCH BROADER AND THE RIM IS MORE COMFORTABLE. BUT, NOT SURE I CAN GROW INTO IT.

I love it!

By curtis a. bier

from Belleville, IL

Comments about Bach Standard Series Trumpet Mouthpiece in Silver:

Having been a trumpet player for over 40 years, mouthpieces are vitally important. I have tried quite a few. I have to say I truly love the features of t Bach 1 series in general, but the extra wide rim on the 1X helps for those long gigs or legit concerts. It blows freely, has great tone, and great resonance for everything from Jazz to John Rutter. I highly recommend it.

The 3E has helped me out with my high notes.

By Lee-7qWIV

from virginia, USA

Comments about Bach Standard Series Trumpet Mouthpiece in Silver:

So i switched over to a 3C/E and I sound so much better. I have to play the second G above the staff in our show and that 3E has helped tremendously. I reccomend a Bach E for anyone who needs to play in the high register.

great mouthpieces

By Avi

from boston , MA

Comments about Bach Standard Series Trumpet Mouthpiece in Silver:

The sound of bach mouthpieces are great. I've played on a bach mouthpice since 4th grade. I started out with a 7C, which was perfect for me when i was a beginner. The "C" cup mouthpieces have a wonderful tone, and is very versatile. You can make jazz out of it, but its probably best for regular concert band. I play on a 3C now, and i can easily play high C and higher. Bach mouthpieces are great!

Uncomparable.....

Comments about Bach Standard Series Trumpet Mouthpiece in Silver:

In playing the King 7C mouthpiece that came with my trumpet and playing it for about 5 years, I decided to purchase a new mouthpiece. With all the talk about how good Bach mouthpieces are, that's what I decided to buy. I bought a Bach 6B mouthpiece, it has a slightly deeper cup on it that gives me better response in marching and concert band. Bach mouthpieces are simply uncomparable in playing tone and comfort/feel. I recommend Bach mouthpieces to anyone wanting to buy a new mouthpiece.

Good insights on mouthpieces

By Ara Kourouyan

from Pasadena

Comments about Bach Standard Series Trumpet Mouthpiece in Silver:

Maurice Andre used Bach 1 1/2 C mounthpiece while playing the Hayden Concerto, and used Bach 7C when playing baroque, and this is according to his student, Nassim Maalouf, who now resides in Paris. You can tell how rich the tone is from his recordings. (search Nassim Maalouf on the internet).My experience with 1 1/2 C when I was in my 20s, was that, it had great and rich tone. (I played with Nassim Maalouf in Beirut) It is good to play 2nd, 3rd trumpet in orchestras or brass ensembles. I used 7C when playing baroques, and it was quite good sound. Now I play the 3C, which is good for the middle and upper range, under the high C. Enjoy. Bach Stradivarious is the best.

Pretty good

By ryan-oh_oQ

Comments about Bach Standard Series Trumpet Mouthpiece in Silver:

I use the 10 1/2D for high register stuff. Works well, although it doesn't have as shallow of a cup as I'd like, but I deal with it. Great mouth piece for lead players.
