I have a Mt Vernon Bach 7S mouthpiece and as I looked through the net, could not find even a record of fabrication. Bach catalogues (recent and old)..nothing, no info whatsoever. It really is an interesting mouthpiece, nice sound, but chokes up a bit in the high register.. would anyone have any info on this piece?, I’d appreciate it…thanks

I missed my Cleveland horns. Is it time to sell the Conns?

Richard,
Don’t think this recent 7S has anything to do with the piece I have. I’m just trying to find out the specs of a much older (Mt Vernon) 7S piece

Are you sure that the letter is an S - maybe an E?
Are there any other non-typical markings on the mouthpiece - numbers, etc.

Does the plating show any wear with exposed brass appearing?
If you see the numbers 925, or 'sterling' it might mean the mpc is sterling silver.

Read this thread (especially the last post, which I just updated to reflect changes in the Imgur upload process):

https://www.trumpetherald.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=146974

You basically have to upload your pictures to another hosting site, and then paste the BBCode for your images in your TH post. (Imgur is a relatively good free hosting site, and it automatically generates the BBCode for you to copy.)
