    I picked up a trumpet at the Salvation Army for about $100 the other day (I played for a couple of years when I was a kid, and wanted to start up again), and it came with two mouthpieces: a Yamaha 11C4 and the other is a Bach 11C. The Bach seems to be shallower with a broader rim. Is one better than the other for a beginner?

    Thanks.

    I would not use the 11C. The 11C4 is a bit bigger and deeper. You'll get a fuller sound and have a bit more flexibility.
