    I am sure that most would not play better (or worse) if they switched!

    I saw a mouthpiece once that the lip was filed or ground down. I guess it was to make the bowl more shallow.

    No, they didn't. It was never a "popular" horn with pros. For many, it is very awkward to hold. I had one and would never consider owning another one except to make a lamp out of it.

    That's what happened ..... The balanced forward valve block caused them to smash themselves in the face with the Recording. That would turn anybody off.:lol:

    Rafael Mendez and Louis Prima, at least, survived their initial meeting with a Recording. Besides, we all know it's not the horn.:cool:

    TJ, here is a very interesting article on Uan Rasey's heavily modded Recording. Uan Rasey's Olds Recording Trumpet
    He certainly sounded great on his and here is a giant among players who did play lead on a huge mouthpiece, very similar to the giant Bach 1A.
