Bach Mega Tone Trumpet Mouthpiece B-Stock Special
Mega Tone starts with genuine Vincent Bach mouthpiece designs and more than doubles the outside mass. This darkens the sound and allows playing at higher dynamic levels without distortion.
Mega Tone slots extremely well so pitches center dependably, and a slightly larger throat affords less resistance and greater flexibility. The result is a warmer, more powerful sound that adds a new dimension to concert, pop and jazz playing.
NOTE: The inner contours are precisely the same as the original Bach Mouthpiece, allowing same basic playability. However, additional mass on the outside produces a darker, more powerful sound. The Mega Tone throat is also slightly larger than standard to increase response and flexibility. Bach Mega Tone Standard Models are readily available for trumpet, cornet, fluegelhorn, small shank tenor trombone, large shank tenor trombone, bass trombone and tuba (sousaphone). All other Bach models (including screw-rim) can be special ordered.
Seller Note: The Reason why these are listed as "B-Stock" is because they have been in our showcase for years. Some of them may have been play tested by potential buyers and may have slight tarnishing. We Will do our best to polish before shipping. Great price for those who don't mind the old school packaging.
