My lips are lovelier than ever.
As a matter of fact, that goes for ALL of me!
Use Canadian Beer to warm down after Monty Python's "I'm a Lumberjack".
Me too - maybe it's because I'm "vintage" and we were all made better in those days.
THAT`S EXACTLY RIGHT, Tedh!!
Young people don´t understand this AT ALL!
Playing the trumpet makes you a better kisser.
There are scientific studies that prove this!
And most of them carried out by pretty young female scientists.
I can't see any way the trumpet can mash your lip unless played with enormous pressure (this is bad technique BTW) for many years. Muscle development is easily reversible if you don't like it. Just stop doing what you're doing.
However, if you're after the kind of pout prized by the modelling industry, you'll need at least a trombone or possibly a euphonium.
Lots of well reasoned opinions here I have been playing 54 yrs and my chops haven't changed for the worse, just ask my wife of 37 yrs, or better yet not! I think that was one of my "selling points" back then, those sensitive, luscious lips, able to bend notes or women with sensitivity as the occasion demanded. I have never had trouble with dry chops, no matter what the playing environment was and feel fortunate in that regard.
thank you all
you really helped me
i think i will buy a trumpet and i will start practicing.
