This very rare, silver-plated #7 New York Bach trumpet mouthpiece is completely stock and has never been altered. This mouthpiece has never been dropped or damaged and was re-plated approximately 15 years ago by the Anderson Silver Plating Company of Elkhart, Indiana. The Vincent Bach company was not incorporated until 1922. Vincent Bach began manufacturing trumpet mouthpieces in 1916. The fact that the abbreviation “Corp” is not stamped on the mouthpiece tells us that this mouthpiece was made sometime between 1916 and 1922, prior to incorporation. This mouthpiece very well could have been made by Vincent Bach himself. Timeline: Vincent Bach began mouthpiece manufacturing in 1916 at this home/workshop located at 210 W 107th St, NY, NY. In 1918 Vincent Bach setup his first factory, located at 11 E 14th St, NY, NY. In 1919, Bach moved to his 2nd factory which was located at 204 E 85th St, NY, NY. In 1922, he moved his factory to a 3rd location: 237 E 41st St, NY, NY. On August 18th, 1922, the Vincent Bach company was incorporated as Vincent Bach Corporation, Inc. While at the 237 E 41st St location. From that date forward, all Bach instruments and mouthpieces were stamped with either “Corporation” or Corp.
