Hearkening back to Vincent Bach’s early 1920’s New York designs, Artisan mouthpieces combine the playability of Bach’s Classic inner cup dimensions with the softer rim designs and greater outside mass of his early mouthpieces. These mouthpieces come standard with a 24 backbore and a 27 throat. Both of these design elements significantly differentiate the response and sound clarity of the Artisan series from the Classic Series.

Wide: Increases endurance
Narrow: Improves flexibility, range
Round: Improves comfort
Sharp: Increases brilliance, precision of attack

Large: Increases volume, control
Small: Relieves fatigue, weakness
Deep: Darkens tone, especially in low register
Shallow: Brightens tone, improves response, especially in high register

Large: Increases blowing freedom, volume, tone; sharpens high register (largest sizes also sharpen low register)
Small: Increases resistance, endurance, brilliance; flattens high register

Except in general terms, it isn’t possible to identify backbores by size because they also vary in shape. Various combinations of size and shape make the tone darker or more brilliant, raise or lower the pitch in one or more registers, increase or decrease volume. In each instance, the effect depends in part on the throat and cup used in combination with the backbore.
