Vincent Bach Mt. Vernon 3c Trumpet Mouthpiece
For me, this was the Holy Grail of Mouthpiece hunting. I played this Mt. Vernon 3C on too many gigs to count, from Broadway to Orchestral to Small Group Jazz to Brass Quintet. It is the most versatile mouthpiece I've ever played. It has a awesome wider rim(compared to the modern 3C). The inside diameter is a little wider than a current 3C (probably more like a 1 1/4) I had it re-plated as soon as I got it because it was pretty dinged up when I bought it. There is some plating wear at the bottom of the rim where it goes into the trumpet. The only reason I am getting rid of this is that I have another (that is more dinged up) that I like slightly better. This mouthpiece can sound bright, smooth and pretty, and dark with lots of core. It has been for me the Holy Grail and I'll be sad to see it go. My loss and your gain. These don't come up here on Ebay very often.
