I just got hold of a mouthpiece labelled "Vincent Bach Corp., New York" with the size stamped "22SC". It is very heavy, very shallow and although I am not very experienced, it lets me play much higher than any other mouthpiece I have tried, albeit with a thinner tone as I'd expect.
It has a very short small shank, about 4mm shorter than my Bach 61/2 AL. I wonder if a short section has been cut off to remove some damage. But it still fits firmly in my trombone.
It has lost a lot of its plating.
Can anyone tell me anything about it? Is it worthwhile replating?

if you have an alto, it might be worth it but if the sound sounds wonky, don't bother.

Then again, if it's a Mount Vernon, go on ebay and make a couple hubdred bucks.

Thanks Dennis. I was told it is a Mount Vernon from the 1920s, presumably because of the stamped info. It has a really huge cushion rim, like a big fat pillow under the lips. Are such mouthpieces valuable because of their rarity?

Probably too small even for an alto. Might be suitable for a trumpet player doubling on a small bore, or for bass trumpet.

I don't think this can be correct.  If I recall correctly the Bach factory didn't move from the Bronx to Mt. Vernon until 1953.

The 22 size range was designed by bach for bass trumpet originally. The 22SC is the "cushion rim" version.

Yep, "cushion rim" is right. My lips almost go to sleep on it. Thanks for the information that it is for a bass trumpet. That explains why I can scream higher with it than ever before - even if it does sound like I am screaming down a bathroom tap.
