From my email.




Hello!
My name is Sean from Australia and I had two questions about the Vincent Bach Corp. -

1. I know that the NY Bach 6 Trombone had 7(?) variants but I was wondering if you could list the small variables?

2. Would you happen to know the measurements of the Mount Vernon trombone mouthpieces?

If you could help me with those questions, I'd be really thankful!

Can't wait to hear back from you!

I do not have a consoliated list of the different variants of the model 6. I'll psot this here on the forums, so others can comment. Also, once you register you can download many old Bach catalogs that also have some differences of the various trombone models through the years.

Hey Everyone,
I have a build sheet from the Bach factory dated 9/6/57. The sheet lists all the small bore tenor trombone models from model 4 to model 16 with all the variations made at that time. I will copy the portion of the build sheet as best I can for all the model 6's -


Model - Slide Bore - mouthpipe - slide crook ---bell ---- Lrg. Tuning Slide Tube - Tuning Slide Bow - Sml. Tuning Slide Tube - Gooseneck

6i--------.485-------#412----------.522 ------#401------------.721------------------#411---------------.582---------------#411
6ii-------.485-------#412----------.522 ------#425------------.721------------------#411---------------.562---------------#411
6iii-------.485-------#412----------.522 ------#425------------.670------------------#416---------------.528---------------#416
6iv-------.485-------#412----------.522 -----#431------------.721------------------#416---------------.562---------------#411
6v-------.485-------#412----------.522 -----#431------------.670------------------#416---------------.528---------------#416
6vi-------.485-------#412----------.522 -----#436------------.721------------------#431---------------.562---------------#411
6vii-------.485-------#412----------.522 -----#440------------.721------------------#431---------------.562---------------#411

Some notes to add-
1. Models iii and v have the smallest bell thoats and smallest larger slide tubes, therefor making them the least desirable.
2. All bells listed on this sheet are from 1957 after Bach went to all 7 1/2 inch bells as standard sizes. Earlier M.V. and N.Y. bells could have 7 inch bells, but that would be the only variable from these numbers.


Hope this all helps!!

Sure I can provide a scan. Should I just email it to you? If not, where/how should I post it to the site?
