In the past 4 months I've gone from a 17C to a 7 to a 3C. I'm trying to make the 3C work because I find that some of the players I admire are using a 3C. I've seen Bobby Shew change mouthpieces when he performs, but I know he uses a Kelly 3C. Anyway, I'm having a difficult time hitting anything above G3 without using more lip pressure than I'd like to. Can anyone help through this painful experience...........OUCH!
