    These bits and pieces might interest those who don't accept blow in little end sound comes out of big end as a playing notion

    Scientists confirm that buzzing is good for you!

    Wave separation in the trumpet under playing conditions and comparison with time domain finite difference simulation

    That still applies right? Otherwise I must be doing something really wrong...

    No I think it's now allow the big end to suck the air as it wants it as you breath out. (And that ain't as daft as it sounds)

    The articles seem to say that the lips take part in note production. They do not say which is the better end to blow through. My personal system is based on blowing through the small end. I will be offering Skype lessons for my Small End system shortly

    Duuhh, standard behaviour for a resonant system?

    Richard Smith is also one of my heroes. Reading his stuff doesn't make you a better trumpeter, but what he finds helps him make better trumpets with a better resonant behaviour. To do that, you need to know what happens when you blow into the little end.........

    I have to admit these articles do take some reading through but they do back up a lot of what was said (and rubbished some of the other stuff) that was the subject of some heated discussion on another thread which was in part why posted it. I also like the fact that you can have a personal free consultation with the man if you are looking at an SW trumpet and he (unlike some others) is in the UK and only 20 miles away. Major league save up for me though.
