      Bach Standard Series Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece in Gold (H78456)
Availability:  


Find the best mouthpiece for your individual embouchure.

The Bach Standard Series Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece in Gold is available in the following model/sizes: 1G, 1-1/4G, 1-1/4GM, 1-1/2G, 1-1/2GM, 2G, 3G, 4G, 4GB, 5G, 5GL, 5 GB, 5GS, 6-1/2A, 6-1/2AL, and 6-1/2AM

When selecting a mouthpiece, a brass instrumentalist should choose one with a solid, compact tone of large volume. A carefully selected Bach mouthpiece can help improve a player’s embouchure, attack, tonguing and endurance.

Because no two players have the same lip or tooth formation, what is perfect for one may be entirely unsuitable for the other. Bach produces many different models so that each player can find the best mouthpiece for their individual embouchure.

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 effects of each.

RIM
Wide: Increases endurance
Narrow: Improves flexibility, 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; flattens 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 effect depends in part on the throat and cup used in combination with the backbore.

Key To Trumpet, Cornet and Fluegelhorn Model Numbers:
Bach trumpet, cornet and fluegelhorn mouthpieces have been numbered in an orderly progression from the largest to the smallest diameters and from the deepest to the most shallow cup, each with a choice of rim designs.

Rim shape is described for each indi- vidual model throughout the catalog. Model numbers progress numerically from model #1 with the largest cup diameter, to model #20C with the smallest cup diameter.

Bach Standard Series Large Shank Trombone Mouthpiece in Gold Features:

  • Model No. / Depth of Cup / Approx. Cup Dia. / Rim Shape / Throat / Backbore / Description

    1G / Deep / 28.00 mm / Medium thin, well rounded. / .319" / 800S / Extra large and deep for extraordinary power and depth of tone. Among the largest and most powerful bass trombone mouthpieces produced today.
    1-1/4G / Deep / 27.50 mm / Medium thin, well rounded. / .276" / 429 / Cup diameter is smaller than No.1G, but still very large and deep, with the sonority preferred by the modern American school.
    1-1/4GM / Deep / 27.50 mm / Medium thin, well rounded. / .319" / 800S / Same rim and cup as No.1-1/4G, but with a larger throat and backbore for large, powerful sound, well in tune.

    1-1/2GM / Deep / 27.00 mm / Medium wide, well rounded. / .319" / 800S / Larger throat and backbore than the No.112G results in less resistance, larger dynamic range, deeper, warmer sound.
    2G / Deep / 26.75 mm / Medium narrow. / .276" / 429 / Deep, full, resonant tone. Big low register even through the pedal tones.
    3G / Deep / 26.26 mm / Medium wide, well rounded. / .276" / 429 / Same rim shape and diameter as No.3 small shank tenor trombone, but with a deep bass trombone cup, throat, and backbore to facilitate pedal tones.

    5GS / Medium deep / 25.50 mm / Medium wide, semi flat. / .261" "G" / 420 (modified) / Shallower "G"-style cup with smaller throat and backbore than No. 5G produces easy high register, slightly brighter sound.
