Bach Artisan Mouthpieces - are these completely new mouthpieces, or the same pieces with a new outer profile and higher price?

If they are completely reworked, inside and out, cool.

If not, it's like the record companies selling me the same album twice - once on vinyl, again on CD.

I have two. A 12c and 6.5a. They play well. Better (for me) than stock Bach.

I really want to try an 11c but don't trust Bach enough to shell out for one.  Evil

If I were looking for something in that size, I'd give the BrassArk replica a shot first, although they're more expensive than the Artisan ones. Heard very good things about them.

I don't blame you. I bought an Artisan 7C and hated it. One of the very few mpcs I ever sold to get rid of. Two happiest days of my life recently were when I bought it and when I sold it.

Aren't the differences mostly with the blank used? ie the blank is reminiscent of the old original bach mouthpiece blanks (very rounded).

For what it's worth the blank style can have a big impact on how the piece plays.

Don't know  But in the case of the Artisan "7C" I bought - it was way more like a 12C.

I have an Artisan 11C I bought from a member here. I haven't spent a ton of time with it to give a review (been playing large bore lately), but from the little I have played it it seems fine.

I'd love to try the 6.5A though.

I have an Artisan 7C. Loved it in the showroom and got home and really put it to work. Too bright and not the core and flexibility of my Mt Vernon 7C`s. Tried it on all of my horns and really tried to like it until....
I put it into my Bass Trumpet and the brightness was what I wanted on this horn. So I found a use for it.

There you go!

I like the IDEA of an Artisan 7C, if Bach would do it right. I guess I got Bach'd and I couldn't Handle it, but I still have one on my Litz.  :D

Thanks yes! I'm curious. It should be better than a regular one? But maybe not the same as my Mt Vernon, still I'm curious  :)

Don, if it blows about the same as a regular bach, keep it. And I suspect it does since you give it away.... Hi

It has a slightly different outer shape, fits further into the leadpipe. Does not blow like the modern ones. Is on the smaller side of the Mt.Vernons.

Didn't mean I'd give it away, but I could be persuaded to sell it. I got it from Japan.
