A trivial question! Do you prefer the modern Bach 3C or the Yamaha Bobby Shew Jazz? And why?

I prefer Bobby Shew Jazz but my favorite in that range is ACB 3C.
Bobby Shew Jazz just worked better for me than Bach. Also it's a little bit cheaper so I recommend it to students.

I've played both. As I recall the Shew Jazz has a similar rim size and feel as a smaller vintage Bach 3C, pretty close that that of the Yamaha 14B4. This is the rim size/shape I've typically favored for all but the picc. The newer Bach 3Cs feel a good bit lager more like a Yamaha 15C4 or 16C4.

I like the tone of both the Bach 3C or the Shew Jazz but don't favor it over the tone I get with a Bach 1.5C underpart. But it's been a while since I've checked. I might have to run that experiment again.

Yamaha Shew Jazz over the current Bach 3C.

Blessing 3C over the current Bach 3C.

My old 90's version of the Bach 3C that I haven't played for several years about equal to the Shew Jazz or Blessing 3C.

Edit:

There's nothing inherently "wrong" with the current Bach 3C, but it's not the same as the 3C I played on for years. The Blessing and Shew Jazz are closer. Thus, I prefer them.

Shew Jazz - for me, better sound and easier in the upper register.

The most well-known and common mouthpieces in the world are probably all BACH: 7C 3C 1.5C and 1.25C at least in my life experience. When I was in high school and college I didn't see a lot of Yamaha mouthpieces, or other brands, compared to Bach. Monette was kind of common and easy to spot in college. I lived in Colorado and California, there are definitely regional differences.

Why is Ford more well known than Hyundai?

There's nothing wrong with the Bach 3C, it's been a favorite of players for decades longer than Yamaha has made brass instruments, let alone the Shew Jazz mouthpiece.

I'm a trumpet guy myself and I didn't even know about the Shew Jazz mouthpiece for a long, long time.

Doesn't it seem to you that the Bach 3C is more reactive, faster in reaction?
The Yamaha Bobby Shew Jazz most muffled ?
