Bach Trombone

Mouth piece Purchase?

Hi, I own a Bach 42BO trombone and I'm going to be purchasing a new 5G mouthpiece. I can't go anywhere to actually try either of these mouthpieces, so I'm asking for some opinions here. Out of these two mouthpieces, which would be better for Jazz/Marching band?

Bach 5G, Large Shank - http://www.wwbw.com/Bach-Trombone-Mouthpiece--Large-Shank-in-Gold-468395-i1417446.wwbw?src=5g+mouthpiece

Bach Megatone 5G, Large Shank - http://www.wwbw.com/Bach-Megatone-Large-Shank-Trombone-Mouthpiece-in-Gold-468394-i1419900.wwbw?src=5G+mouthpiece

Please make sure you select the 5G version from the drop-down menu so you know which ones I'm talking about. If any of you have a BETTER 4G or 5G mouthpiece suggestion, PLEASE leave it in your answer! 10 points to whoever gives an informative answer about which is better (or if you have a suggestion for a different one), and please tell me why it would be a better choice. Thanks!

Your horn is ideally suited for symphonic and orchestral tenor parts that need a big rich t-bone sound, to use it as a marching horn I'd say the 5G Magatone simply because it offers more power than the standard Bach but will leave you with all the range you're likely to need for marching band.

Jazz though is a different critter and you have a horn that's bored for 3rd and 4th parts. If you're planning a seat in that part of the section then the 5G megatone will work but the 4G will be much more versatile over the whole range of the horn. If you're playing 1st or 2nd on this horn then the 5GS or a 6 1/2 might be a better choice since it has a much smaller backbore and throat to make for a brighter tone and easier high register on that big bore. [most folks play 1st and 2nd jazz band seats on a small-bore horn ideally]

If you're going to be doing some symphonic band and orchestra stuff too then the 4G megatone is probably the best all-around choice if you can only buy one. Otherwise, if you can get something in the 3G range for symphonic band you'll like that big-dark-Germanic sound for that music especially if you're playing lower parts.

If that horn came with a 6 1/2 AL -- don't loose that mouthpiece. That's the single most versatile mouthpiece for a big-bore bone or euphonium that's made. Not ideal for everything but a good compromise all-around 'piece.

PS: don't fall for the "better players have deeper mouthpieces hype" - it's a lie. You pick your mouthpiece to match the bore of your horn according to the type of sound you want to get and your specific embouchure. Put a 3G on that horn and then try to play up really high and it won't matter how good you are, it'll stink. Put a 12C on it and try to play low - same deal but worse. Pick your mouthpiece according to what you want it to sound like - not according to what folks who don't know think those numbers mean.

Put a 1G on it and work up your pedal tone and low trigger skills and you can give most HS tuba players a run for the money on that horn and sound cleaner and crisper.
