Condition Overview: The mouthpiece is in exquisite condition, a rare find for collectors and musicians alike who seek a piece with historical significance and impeccable performance. The rim, cup, and backbore are in superb condition, ensuring that the player can achieve a clear, resonant tone characteristic of Vincent Bach's design philosophy.

A singular, small ding on the outer rim serves as the only mark upon its otherwise impeccable surface, a minor imperfection that does not impede the instrument's playability or sonic clarity.

  • Rim Width: Medium wide, providing a balanced feel that reduces fatigue and allows for extended periods of playing without discomfort.
  • Bore (Throat) Size: 27, a specification that contributes to the mouthpiece's versatile sound projection and responsiveness across the cornet's range.
