    I have three mouthpiece questions, thanks for your help.
    1) Has anyone tried a kelly screamer or 14c mouthpiece? What did you think and will I get more range off of one of these (I wouldn't use them often, and when I would it would be in pep band so the loss of tone would not be a huge issue)?
    2) Would it be hard on my embouchure to switch between a 1.25 C and a 3C?

    Depends on how much gun powder you have in the shot gun before you press the trigger to launch your mouthpiece.

    There were two in one:
    1) Has anyone tried a kelly screamer or 14c mouthpiece?


    AND


    What did you think and will I get more range off of one of these (I wouldn't use them often, and when I would it would be in pep band so the loss of tone would not be a huge issue)?


    Still having problems with the math D.C?

    I really do this on gigs for a specialty song we play called "Trane Thang". I also play my mouthpiece from the backside and pop air through the lead pipe while moving the valves during the bass solo. It IS amazing what additional sounds you can get out of the trumpet and its equipment. By the way, the double horn thing drives the audience crazy. The yalps and applause is deafining.
