    You said you tried it and your tone was better and the upper range slotted better which sounds like it was easier and less work. Doesn't that answer your question? Ignore what the mouthpiece has written on it and play it.

    Then you obviously didn't read my post OR gone to John Storks website. :D No one, including the poster Rowuk can tell you over the internet what is going to work for you. That is why I said you need to arm yourself with information.

    Without anyone being there and seeing you play, it's anyone's guess. Logic would say no, but, that size may be perfect for you and everything falls perfectly into place, or not!

    Yet another post where the answer is found in Jens Lindemann's 'sticky.'

    I don't see a problem with switching; as was mentioned, many, many band directors know exactly what they're talking about.

    PS: I played a Schilke 14 in High School, which is the equivalent of a 1 1/2C.

    The kid is using a 3 rim. Why change rims? (I know, the different 3 contours aren't the same). Try a 3C. There's probably one floating around to try. He'll get the compression and upper register slotting that he's looking for without a big rim change. If that sounds too bright then go with the 1 1/2 C. It isn't that much bigger, the cup is a little deeper, and the rim is pretty comfortable.

    Yeah, but if we start relying on the stickies, there will be nothing for us to do!!:roll:
