12c Mouthpiece

What is the best mouthpiece?

I play trumpet, and I've gotten stuck with a piece for Jazz band called Salt Peanuts, now whether or not the solo is actually Dizzy's I can play it an octave lower, but I use a 12C mouthpiece is there something that could help (other than practicing) to get me a higher register? I wanna nail this solo as its written but understand if I can't.

Let's get the normal BS out of the way first. You should be able to play any note you want on any mouthpiece as long as you use proper technique and practice regularly.

Now, here's a HELPFUL answer. C cup mouthpieces are fairly medium depth. In Bach's mouthpiece lettering system, E is the shallowest and A is the deepest. They do make one model of an F cup, which I own, but never had much luck with it. The 12 size rim isn't a bad choice... again with back the smallest diameter rim is a 20 (I think) and the biggest is a 1. Which number is best for you is based on your lip size and what kind of sound you want to achieve. Generally speaking, a shallow cup always makes high notes easier to produce. You will produce a more bright and cutting tone, which is horrible for classical playing but VERY important for swing and lead playing. The link below is to a mouthpiece dealer I use. I've selected Bach for you. If you click on the chart you can view each mouthpiece with a description of what its uses are. I would recommend a 7E or a 10 1/2 EW.
