Student Trombone

Which trombone mouthpiece to buy?

I'm in marching band and I have been playing on the same Bach 6.5 AL small shank mouthpiece for 4 years now, and I feel its time to branch out and get a new one. I play a Yamaha (don't know which) school issued student trombone. Right now I am looking at a Schilke 50, Marcinkiewicz 8H(or 8H-S, don't know the difference), and a Hammond 13ML. I have personally tried the Hammond one because they have it at my friendly local music store, but none of the others, so I did my best to research and find different brands that are similar to the 6.5 AL, but I know you shouldn't buy one without trying it which is why I am trying to find 6.5 AL-like mouthpieces.

This might sound silly, but if you're looking for one *like* the 6.5AL, why not just play on the 6.5AL?

Like 99% of other trombone players, I learned on a 6.5AL, but since I was doing mostly concert playing, after a few years I switched over to a Bach 5G instead (on my big concert horn). Since I liked that, I switched my marching horn over to a 5GS, which is the same but with a small bore shank, which I used all through high school and college marching band as well as 3 summers of marching drum corps. I haven't really played any of my old marching horns in nearly a decade, but I still use the same 5G on my concert horn almost all the time.
In the end, you have to go with what works for you, in terms of comfort and best sound. Find the biggest music store you can and try whatever they can dig up until you find something you like. For me, it happened to be another Bach. Your mileage may vary.

(And for what it's worth, my first college trombone professor played a 6.5AL professionally and tried to get me to switch back to one several times- it's definitely not a bad choice for a lead player)
