    Second what the MD said, ice and rest. Also, Ibuprofen can help too.

    That's what another trumpet player MD friend here said - ice, ibuprofen and rest.
    Oh, and forget pedals they can't help a lip that has been worked too hard.

    trickg, great to see you're back in the thick of it again. Keeping the great player on the gig, that's what it's about. Yes, with the quintet, we are now playing more back to back dates and if I don't ice and massage between sets (sometimes between songs) the next day is difficult. I find by doing this, not over blowing by using the Vulgano Brother ray of power really keeps me fresh for the next day. Example I am about to run off to play at Gilly's tonight, then tomorrow night we have a bistro gig in the art district here in Dayton. Then a Saturday rehearsal with the quintet. These techniques will keep me in the loop.
