    I think you possibly mean 'thick lips = large mouthpieces', Robin. And I know enough good African trumpeters who play smaller mouthpieces than I'm comfortable with to have an open mind on this.


    But it's quite a complicated issue isn't it?

    Definitely one for my Christmas list... I hope I can get it here in the UK. My wife can wrap it up for me. :)

    Great post, Robin. Much truth here -- and much more significant than mouthpieces and music. Thanks. JA
