    I just got a 2 3/4 c mouthpiece, and it has helped a lot. The air goes through the mouthpiece easier than any other C. Is it true that you have to adjust your lips in a period of time for some mouthpieces?

    Anything from a cold or stomache ache to a $20,000 trumpet changes something about our playing. Some changes happen naturally, others need work. It is different for everybody.

    My toughest gig was not with a new mouthpiece or horn (I've had a couple), it was with diarrhea.

    LOL!!!! I'd rather play on a beat-up student horn with a chipped mouthpiece than play with intestinal issues!

    Thanx for not posting any pictures!!!!

    I played a 2 3/4 C for a while back in high school. My band director at the time tried to move me from a 7C to a 2 3/4 C in the middle of marching band season. That turned out to be a poor time for that change.

    I've ordered a Megatone 2 3/4C - hoping it will work well with my Bach Rotary C Trumpet - phenom instrument, by the way.
