    Black^Hill 1-0G mouthpiece, which I bought in the USA quite a few years ago.

    Apparently it's a bit of an "in-between" mouthpiece, as it has the rim size of a Schilke 59 and the cup of a Shilke 60, but the back bore is smaller than the Greg Black 1G. The inner rim diameter is 28.50 mm.

    Well, that particular model does require a big gob........

    and if you've a big gob, there's no need to worry about technique:biggrin:

    Ah, the old 'Vanessa'...

    And I didn't start this one!

    Bach 1-1/4G

    I wonder if a poll might make this more informative... Suitable options would be, I reckon:

    Question: What is your preferred mouthpiece inner diameter?

    Contrabass trombone or tuba mouthpiece larger than 0G in bass trombone
    0G / 95D / 116
    1G / 60 / Yeo / 93D / 00AL / 114
    1-1/4G / 59 / 85MD / 0AL / 111
    1-1/2G / 58 / 1AL / 108
    2G / 57 / 2AL / 106
    3G / 53 / 3AL / 104
    Tenor trombone mouthpiece smaller than 3G in bass trombone

    Any chance of adding this?

    Working from specifications is dodgy because the numbers often disagree significantly between different manufacturers - e.g. Schilke measurements being quoted up to a mm larger than the Bach sizes that are comparable in reality.
