Back when I doubled on marching baritone in college I used a Bach 9 short shank trombone mouthpiece. Even though it felt "small" it made no difference in helping go back and forth. Just learn how to adjust to each one separately. It doesn't take long.

Mostly I use trombone while teaching beginners or sectional rehearsals with younger players. I use a Greg Black 11C with a small bore Bach model 6 trombone. This set up allows me to get a good characteristic trombone sound to model for the kids. Basically I blow into it the same way a blow into a trumpet. Much easier to switch between trumpet and bone than a larger set up.

Just as we're all different with trumpet mouthpieces, we're all different with trombone mouthpieces -- whether we're doublers or not.

I played trombone as my primary instrument for 20 years, was never comfortable on a Bach 6.5AL (pretty much the smallest "expected" mouthpiece for any serious trombone player where I grew up), was ridiculed for playing a Bach 7C, and ended up playing a Bach 6.75C for most of my serious trombone playing time.

I've played trumpet as my primary instrument for the past 30 years, and started doubling on valve and slide trombone in the last 10 years.

At this point I'm most comfortable on trombone playing a new-vintage Jet-Tone BM-L -- what was once known as the "Buddy Morrow - Lead" mouthpiece. It's small and shallow, yet with it I played a recording session earlier today and will play a concert with a big band on the second trombone chair next week. Nobody's complaining and I'm getting all the trombone gigs I want (read into that what you will).
