MIND MELDING - the province of the Vulgani methinks - or some other Vulcan.
Didn't you mean "meta-thinks," Ted? By the way, none of the moderators here are from the planet Vulcan--we're from Krypton, which explains our devotion to truth, justice and the American way.
Not that I want to interrupt your digressions, but I tried some of the other mouthpieces I have on my Lightweight 400 and have identified at least one decent, bright alternative to my usual piece. If I sail through rehearsal with it, I'll know fairly well that my theory was correct.
Playing a horn straight down the middle is much less tiring than bending or holding notes in tune on a loose-slotting horn/mouthpiece combination. As you said, though, a shallower cup may help in more ways than one.
True enough, but since they all slot the same but I don't have the issue on all of them....
I am with Robin on this one. When I play lower parts I am listening or trying to make the lead sound better or the section fuller. There's quite a bit of finese involved in the cluster chords ... knowig how much is enough to feel the dissonance but not flip the chord. If the whole section is playing too bright it makes it tough. There is the possibility that the section is just playing too loud, something I find annoying.
You might try recording a session and see who the mix is.
Hey Tom please stop talking while we are interrupting.
