Anybody need a "Mouth of Trumpet"?

You should see what the term for "bell" is!

I bought a Megatone looking 3C from a Chinese company, and it is better made than some Bachs in the '90s. Not a true 3C copy, the bite is softer and the cup deeper, and the whole effect is that of a kind of large but not too large trumpet mouthpiece (which the 3 is).
Not bad for $10.

@vulgano-brother me too, I have a megatone-looking 3c from an unknown Chinese mfgr, for about $7 new. For mine, compared to the genuine Bach 3C I have ca 1972, I would say the cup width is same, the bite sharper, and cup depth deeper. The sound is a tad darker and more brassy, and it is more difficult to play above the staff. The build quality is better; better silver plating. The B 3C gives a sweeter sound at pianissimo, much louder sound at forte, and is easier above the staff. For $7, price can't be beat. I bought it to experiment with the weight and sound. I do like the extra weight as a counter balance; the horn balances better in my hands.
