    Looks like he's sucking on the mouthpiece, not playing. Don't think he's a Trumpeter!

    Instead of getting hung up on the picture, what about looking at what it stands for (there is not one link in this thread)?
    (ahts): The Boston Arts Festival Home
    I could care less if the published a picture of some pubescent brat that just brainlessly changed mouthpieces using tons of pressure and and playing like crap or professional picture of some good looking model that has NEVER had a trumpet in their hands. The sound coming out the front, the range and endurance would be VERY similar! The model at least would have an excuse.

    This is not an association for music, rather the arts in general. They are in their 6th year. An amazing feat considering the bean counters activities in these trying times.

    This dude has never had a trumpet in his hands but the embouchure is still quite popular and effective with french horn players. It is called "Einsetzen" in german. I have not studied the effects, but there is a bit documented about it here:

    The guy in that vid says he's doing ansetzen not einsetzen, though it looks more like the latter. Neither one describes what the guy in the picture is doing, I'd say that's more like "teeth-setzen".

    I can't agree. There have been many ultra fine trumpets that were built with a water key on the third valve slide.

    well my 1976 strad has a water key on the 3rd valve slide, and it playes better than those Bach run off's called B&S that all my friends use just cause its a few hundred cheaper... its made in germany sending money over seas, no offense rowuk, but yeah keep the money in american companies. Mine has that water key there, never use it hardly, and it was before the years they took it off of the bachs if I remember right.
