Hey Man!! Play whatever works for you!! Be Careful not to compensate for the switch with bad habits. It could be fast or long. Also don't be tricked by immediate results. Often your lips will be tricked before you adjust to a mouthpiece. I myself went from a shallow piece to a 1C. But then switched to the 1 1/2C. Keep your options open. Trust your instincts and don't worry about the lead playing. Check out Sean Jones. He has everything. And plays in the stratosphere on a 1C!! Hope I can be of help!!
