    Kinda like your hand carressing the waist of a tiny delecate ballarena, right? See that is what makes the player. Light, relaxed, tender and caring... Just like we all here at TM know Rowuk to be!

    Careful how you make it sound like ALL of us wear knee-pads and are triple jointed enough to give OURSELVES a pat on the back !....not to mention our elevated 'track' position.

    I think the grip is more indicative of your playing stile than any change in sound.

    When I was in college, my teacher told me to grip the trumpet. He told me the trumpet is a masculine instrument and I was playing too delicately.
    This guy was a studio musician in NY

    Later in life, I studied from a symphony guy. He told me to never grip the trumpet.

    I think a tight grip is a sign of a more tight approach to playing. A loose grip is a sign of a more relaxed approach.
