    You cannot play with this if you use pressure. Yes, it works!

    Thanks again for even more very helpful advice, do you know any mouthpiece exercises (not just for the center buzzing I was considering earlier, but in general)? Another question: does having a certain jaw/teeth structure change how you play as well? I have grown up with a split between my two front teeth, which from I have heard helps you reach higher notes easier (Though I still can't exactly blow all of those crazy high notes some of you can yet) Also to Mendez: that is probably the coolest and most-dangerous looking mouthpiece I have ever seen, what is it and where exactly did you get it?

    When you play an instrument, how it reacts will have a lot to say about how the buzz "feels". The stronger your playing, the less you will "suffer".

    Weak players of course can really get messed up. The solution is to simply practice a lot more!
