    Vincent Bach 10-1/2C Mouthpiece

    I have a trumpet moutpiece that I acquired from a friend that passed away that he used when he played trumpet. It is a Vincent Bach Corp. New York 10-1/2C. I used to play on it for jazz band until my new teacher informed me that it was a rare mouthpiece that could be worth something someday. I believe the reason is due to the fact that it was manufactured in New York. Does anybody know about how much this mouthpiece would be worth now or a while down the road? I am not interested in selling it yet.

    If you like it, play it--it's not like you're going to wear it out. It's true that it might be worth less if you have to have it replated; but that's no reason to not play it. I have a couple of NY Bach mouthpieces from back in the day--I don't play them any more; but I would if I wanted to. Every one of my 4 principle horns (2 60s Bachs, a Recording Olds Trumpet and Cornet) is a classic horn that continue to escalate in value--doesn't keep me from playing them. I enjoy them, you can enjoy this mouthpiece too. It makes no sense to lock it away just because it might be worth something some day. By the way, some people will pay a premium for the right NY Bach mouthpiece today.

    The last one that sold on ebay went for about $30.

    I recently bought a Bach 10 1/2 C mouthpiece. Is it different?

    Big Daddy--
    There have been some design changes over the years--throat size and rim profile I believe, but don't quote me on that. Anyway, some people prefer the old design.

    Amzi,
    Thanks for the response. I do not play it anymore just because it is old or valuable, but because I recently purchased a bach 7e for my lead rig and I simply like how it feels better. My question was if the mouthpiece is actually of value as a vintage mouthpiece? Or if there are a million of them and they aren't really that significant :p

    You're not going to retire on the proceeds from it's sale...

    I haven't seen any of them jump out of me as going for much money, and I am an ebay fiend in need of an intervention. If you get $50 for it, you'd be doing a lot better than most. If it were a NY 1C or 1-1/2C you'd get more for it. It's value as something your friend owned is worth more than it's market value.
