Bad form eviln3rd. Dr. Dave does make mouthpieces, true. He doe not push them as medical solutions. They are not his source of making a living. His advice has always been very good. I fear we have lost a very valuable member here at TM. It's tough to lose the good people who can help others. I would worry about Dave Monette hyping curry, or yoga too, after all he sells mouthpieces AND expensive horns. A bad day here at TrumpetMaster. I may also rethink my value to this forum.
