    I agree with VB. Violists are hirsute period, especially the women. Why is that?

    Chuck, I hope you realize my entire reply to this question was ment to be humorous...my God, we all know women are great drivers, especially when they're putting on make-up or yaking on the cell phone. I would shave my beard for your woman also lucky man!..........................crowmadic

    OK, it's a stretch because trumpets aren't involved. Females and facial hair are, however. I wonder if she plays viola?

    Like a mouthpiece, or even weighted bottom caps for your trumpet - the moustache is a tweek for your playing. It increases the density of your upper lip, making it a better match for a "heavy" trumpet. Mendez kept his small because he wanted a brighter sound!

    If you play outdoors in the cold, it is a collection point for the frozen moisture coming out of your nose - thus keeping the top of the mouthpiece ice free!
