    I use a bach mouthpiece with a yamaha trumpet. Is that okay?? ;-)

    J/K. What size mouthpieces do y'all use? Are there any 14C users around here? I've got a 1C and I love it.

    I am currently playing a Monette B1-1 on my cornet and I love it.

    It depends what I'm playing and in what ensemble I'm playing in.

    In symphonic band, I'll generaly stick to a Bach 1C or 3C, depending on what part i'm playing.
    In marching band I use a Selmer 3B, I like it for marching because the rim is very wide and flat and I can keep a steady tone while marching and bounceing around a litle.
    In orchrestra I use a Warburton series 8 back bore with a cup equivilant to a Bach 14C, I like that because it's very big and open and I can make a fatter sound that really cuts though the woodwind and string players.
    In my ska band I use the Selmer 3B, only because I just leave it in the case for my Holton, wich is my marching horn, and I use my marching horn for the ska band.

    Mouthpieces are something you can use on any horn, if that piece feels comfortable.

    Heck, I'm pretty soon going to start using a Monette piece on my Bach, Getzen-Stage 1 Frankenhorn, and Kanstul!

    I'm personally a big believer in one mouthpiece for everything.

    BTW, that cornet avatar is Taylor trumpet's custom "Blue Zues" model. I think that horn is a one-of-a-kind.

    I'm particular to the Starship model, myself.
