    I think Solar Bell maybe on to something with the Wedge mp's. I don't reall like the Monette's as much as others because I also tended to use too much pressure. I prefer Schilke overall becasue of the cushion rim.
    Rinsing with saline, (ie, salt water) is best.

    Now if you had been playing on something else....like a Jettone Studio B, you wouldn't have had a problem!

    Yes... That will bring the swelling down.

    Think if we can get Kingtrumpet to soak his head in saline, his posts will become less pressured?

    Also used a Wedge, didn't really care for it, maybe later down the road my opinion will change

    Better yet... get that cute blonde flute player to massage it into the cut.

    Mark, I had the same problem and it is PROBABLY the pressure issue, when I had it I used a ton of pressure. I couldn't use the one I had, but I picked one up again after fixing the pressure issue and it worked REALLY well. I'm back in the market again for one, I think.

    Oh you guys... XD

    Alright, thanks for all the advice, friends and good doctors. I'll try to not damage myself too much, just got so excited about hitting G's that the past couple days I just had to check to make sure I still had it :)
