Two Piece Trumpet Backbores
Silver backbores are the most popular option and offset gold tops nicely.
Gold backbores sound exactly like silver backbores but are preferred by those who like the look of an all gold mouthpiece. The shanks scratch easily and therefore gold backbores cannot be returned.
Stainless steel two piece backbores backbores brighten the sound of any top they are used with. They make a stainless steel top project more than any other backbore, but the sound is difficult to darken and the mouthpiece can be prone to cracked notes. Stainless steel works extremely well with Delrin plastic tops to make them sound almost the same as brass, but with a very fast response to soft articulation.
We do not make one piece stainless steel backbores.
