    Zach, luke warm water wouldn't hurt, but have you tried palming your mouthpiece to get it warm? I think if its an issue of playing on a warm mouthpiece, certainly having said piece at close to body temperature could work. :dontknow:

    Unless its overblown is cheek puffing worth obsessing about. From what I remember, Reinhardt didn't like it but could live with it. Pocius doesn't worry too much about moderate cheek puffing either

    Absolutely nothing wrong with that.
