    I don't play much anymore, not because I don't love it, but because I own my business and don't have much time these days. I played solid for 34 years, met many trumpet players.
    One thing for sure, every one of them had their own distinct sound, phrasing, attack, vibrato, on and on.
    I knew guys that spent hours practicing and thousands of dollars on mouth pieces and horns trying to sound different, play higher, play more mellow.
    Funny thing is, I could always say,,,,there's ole so and so playing his new Bach, or trying his new custom, made for him MP.
    He could not change himself.
    If you already have a great sound, or even a good one, build on it from there.
    The only thing that might change your sound is if you don't already breath properly.
    Breathing correctly WILL make a huge difference.
    A trumpet is a brass instrument played with a focused airflow. :play::play:
