I've been having a lot of questions lately, so I thought I would just lump them all in to one big fun post. Feel free to one or all of my many questions. 1. Sometimes, but not always, my front teeth have been hurting after practicing. This has only been happening in that last two weeks or so. I don't think I'm playing with any more pressure, and I haven't gained or lost any range, sound quality, technique. 2. I live in North Carolina. In looking for a new C Trumpet, I have contacted almost every music store I know of - and none of them have pro horns in stock or will order one for me to try. They will only order it if I buy it first. Yet, I read posts on this forum and others recommending that you play test first, and even take the horn home for a few days, and try it out with your section to see how it blends in the ensemble. Where are these stores? Do these places really exist? As far as I can tell, the closest in stock pro horn is at Dillon's in New Jersey - 10 hours or so. Should I suck it up and make the trip? 3. Ok, so I thought I had more questions than that, but they're not coming to me. If I think of them, I'll let you know. Thanks in advance for any help.
