Vincent Bach mouthpieces are the best available in the world; designed to meet every conceivable playing need.
The best professional artists choose Bach mouthpieces for their 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.

What every brass instrumentalist should know about mouthpieces.

A mouthpiece consists of the rim, cup, throat, and backbore. Bringing these various components into proper relationship constitutes the art of superior mouthpiece production. In choosing a special combination of rim, cup, throat and backbore designs, consider the eects of each.

RIM
Wide: Increases endurance.
Narrow: Improves exibility, range.
Round: Improves comfort.
Sharp: Increases brilliance, precision of attack.

CUP
Large: Increases volume, control.
Small: Relieves fatigue, weakness.
Deep: Darkens tone, especially in low register.
Shallow: Brightens tone, improves response, especially in high register.

THROAT
Large: Increases blowing freedom, volume, tone; sharpens high register (largest sizes also sharpen low register).
Small: Increases resistance, endurance, brilliance; attens high register.

BACKBORE
Except in general terms, it isn’t possible to identify backbores by size because they also vary in shape. Various combinations of size and shape make the tone darker or more brilliant, raise or lower the pitch in one or more registers, increase or decrease volume. In each instance, the eect depends in part on the throat and cup used in combination with the backbore.

 Keep in mind that playing qualities of mouthpieces vary from person to person; therefore, descriptions of playing qualities are necessarily subjective. It is important to view all information in this manual as a general guide.
For best results, use it as a starting point for testing a number of models, not as a substitution for testing.
