    Me too - maybe it's because I'm "vintage" and we were all made better in those days. ROFL

    Playing the trumpet makes you a better kisser.

    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:thumbsup: 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.:play:
