Product Information

Vincent Bach mouthpieces have been used and loved by players of all levels for decades. Vincent Bach's original designs, coupled with modern manufacturing techniques produce some of the best and most versatile mouthpieces available today.

Made in a large range of sizes and varieties. The first number (i.e the 7 in a 7C) relates indirectly to the cup diameter. The lower the number, the wider the cup diameter. Thus, any mouthpiece starting size 1 will be the widest cup diameter and is generally used by the most experienced players. Whereas a 7 is a mid-sized cup diameter. The smaller cups are used rarely but in certain circumstances where players physically prefer that, or perhaps spend a lot of time playing high notes or speciality Trumpets that require a small mouthpiece set-up.

The other main measurement is the Cup volume. The letter relates to this, with A being the deepest cup type and F being the most shallow. Cup depth relates to comfort, overall tone/volume and indeed pitch. A smaller cup depth will raise pitch slightly and vice-versa with a larger cup. Most players use Cup volume C in Bach mouthpieces but there are certain exceptions depending on the player, style and Trumpet being used.

Although there are many sizes listed, we tend to find that 95% of players choose one of the following: 1.25C or 1.5C for the more experienced player wanting a large sound with plenty of projection and depth, the 3C offers a little less width and thus keeps the higher range a little easier. The 5C and 7C are great for players who are earlier on in their journey with the 7C being the agreed 'go-to' mouthpiece for new players to help them build their embouchure.

If you select the various sizes in the option dropdown box you will see their particular measurements listed below:

  • Size: 1
  • Cup diameter: 17.50mm
  • Cup volume: Deep
  • Throat: 3.66mm
  • Silver plated

I have used Vincent Bach mouthpieces for 12 years and my personal favourite feature about them are the CW mouthpieces. I always use far too much pressure when playing and end up with a ring above my top lip and that problem has been counteracted since buying many cw mouthpieces. If this is an issue you encounter then order one now! Start with 3CW
