    Sounds reasonable. Thing is that the multitude of rim shape choices isn't well developed. I believe that a lot of beginners would be far better served on a rounded rim contour with a well rounded "bite". We don't see these very often though.

    Most of the mouthpieces i see have flattish rims with fairly sharp bites. Even some of the shallow screamer pieces still have flat rims. It seems to me that the rounded medium wide rim with well rounded bite ought to be developed on all sizes of rims and depths of cups.

    Yes, I read most of your posts, but I haven't really noticed any grammar goof-ups of any consequence. I'm not into correcting grammar (and other composition) errors on sites like these. It's obnoxious to do so, and it would be a full time job...

    About the only posts I don't read are your exchanges with kingtrumpet. Nuff said about that, especially since he awarded me a cartoon medal a few posts earlier. :whistle:

    Love working through physics solutions, especially as it related to the trumpet. I used this phrasing a lot in my past life while working through my PhD thesis on quantum chemistry regarding electron transfer through mitochondria during oxidative phosphorylation (converting respiratory energy to chemical energy). So trumpet physics is at the heart of my soul.

    Schilke rims are like this. Rounded medium wide rim with a well rounded bite. And I like his backbone design better than Bach's. Selmer Bach started the trend toward the flattish rims with a sharp inner bite. They said it would help the young student get cleaner attacks. I like the Stork rims because they have a rounded bite.
