    There is no way of knowing other than first hand experience. Everything else is luck.

    Just buy the most expensive one you can find...the bigger the better, too. If a $50 mouthpiece is pretty good, just imagine how well you will be able to play on one costing 5 times that....at least 5 times better, right? :shock:

    Disclaimer...I'm only kidding. Don't try this at home, kids...

    I agree to do your research.

    Most trumpets come with an equivalent to a Bach 7C, which is pretty much a standard size to start with. It also gives you a reference point that most players know.

    Welcome and good luck
