    This is very anoraky, but here goes.

    Since January, I have been using a Black^ Hill 1-0G mouthpiece, which I bought in New York in 1994. It also has a number "2" on the shank. It is a one-piece mouthpiece with no interchangable parts.

    Does anyone know anything about these mouthpieces? Is it the same as a current model Greg Black 1G mouthpiece?

    I tried looking on the internet, but the only references I could find to Black Hill mouthpieces were for trumpet mouthpieces.

    That is anoraky, I thought most bass trombonists got their mouthpiece from B&Q

    Brian, I suggest you ask this question over on the OTJ - There's bound to be someone there who knows.

    I don't know too much about this subject, but I do know that a lot of Bass trombone players are tending to move away from the 'bigger is better' attitude that prevailed for a while. A lot of players are using Bach 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 G mouthpieces or even as 'small' as a 2G. A lot of players are also moving to slightly smaller instruments; Conns instead of Edwards, so they don't have to work so hard to blend with tenor players.

    Hope you find one that suits.

    Duncan's absolutley right. I've seen a couple of those mouthpieces before and from what I can remember the 2 on the shank means is it quite like a bach 1 1/2. That's all I can remember sorry.
