A model of my 1-1/2 trumpet mouthpiece. Printed it solid infill and it plays well, can hit full upper and lower registers. Bit more pinched tone, but very impressive for being printed and costing 60 Cents.


Place in trumpet.

Be aware that ABS plastic is slightly toxic... PLA is better, but can still be poisonous coming out of a 3d printer. You will be OK if you play with it occasionally, but it might affect you if you use it every day.
I have done quite a bit of research, and found that FDA approved nylon or PET filament would probably be the best for making these.
I also read that 3d printing creates a porous surface that bacteria love to cling to, so keep your mouthpiece clean.

How long does this take to make on a 2x printer

I can't remember exactly how long mine took, but you can load it into Makerware and it will give you an estimate

I'm primarily a tuba player but I can hit higher notes on this than a bach 7c. I love it.

Hey, I play trumpet in our top band in our school. printed this out to see if it would fare well for a plastic mouthpiece (for winter marching band). At first I printed it with infill, bad idea. Don't do it. Print it solid. Once i printed it solid though, (ABS), it played pretty fantastic! I also sanded down the mouth to make it rounder and more comfortable to play on. It actually sounds quite dark, although if not a little bit muffled. Great job! It's also great that this is the same size mouthpiece that I play on.

Sounds great :)

could you design a 7C or 5c
i can't find one anywhere

did you ever find a 5C design? I need one.....

How did you design this? Did you get a file from somewhere and download it to thingiverse? how did you get it to be a perfect size.

what size is this
I have to print one in two days and I need it to be a 7C

Hey man, I'm new to 3d printing and my school just got a printer. Is there any way you could make a Bach 1 1/4 C mouthpiece? I can't find one anywhere to print out.

I've made a few of these and they sound great! I have players from symphony orchestras/philharmonics playing on these and loving them! only for demo purposes of course, nobody goes to a concert hall to hear a plastic trumpet hahahahaha. Either way, i can't print these fast enough for all the trumpet players I know who want them. well, i could, but i don't feel like it ;)
