The history of Bach starts with mouthpieces. A century ago, trumpet player Vincent Bach began experimenting with designs and manufacturing processes to replace a broken mouthpiece. Soon after, Vincent Bach’s mouthpieces, and later his trumpets, set the standard for excellence. Bach continues that standard today through constant innovation and dedication to the craft. In the Bach workshop, crafting a mouthpiece begins with innovative, yet classic designs and is then carved by a computer-numeric-controlled machine that shapes and cuts solid brass bars. Each step is precise within one ten-thousandth of an inch.
