Lead pipe – Labels/Style

Lead pipe – Mouthpiece Receiver

“The mouthpiece receiver was shorted by Vincent Bach himself back in the late 1950’s before he sold his company to the Selmer Company. I don’t know his reason for doing this. We simply kept his designs.”

Apparently, Mel Broiles was “instrumental” in having Bach shorten the mouthpiece receiver of Bach trumpets, according to one of my former teachers Edward Treutel. No reason was given in this case, either.
