    Success is measured in months not days. When we change mouthpieces, we are changing the geometry of how our chops work. That can take time!

    The justification for an expensive mouthpiece is:

    it is for the rest of your life - like a good watch or WEDDING RING

    they are not mass produced and each one is play tested before shipment - like a good watch or WEDDING RING

    it works (unlike some good watches or marriages...........)

    If push comes to shove, you could think about the following remark:
    "Gee honey, you know how much I love you, but the trumpet was in my life first, and regardless, if you keep this up, it will be there afterwards........."

    I know I'm cynical but something doesn't sound right and furthermore, this thread is ancient.

    Start with the standard B6. The switch is easier and it costs less. No trumpet player stays with one mouthpiece for their whole life so if you in 5 years are really hot, a new piece could change your perspective.

    Congrats and Happy Birthday. My first Monette mpce was a Prana B6. I played on that mpce for 4 years and just recently switched to a bigger Prana mpce. If you've played on a Monette regular mpce and are switching to Prana, you may find it even easier to find the targets on your notes and just more fun to play. I never worked on non-Prana mpces but based off of Monette's website and my own discussions with Dave and Dean C. at the shop, the Prana mpces are even easier to play. I know I love the switch I just made for my regular mpce and a new lead mpce that I bought.

    The main advice I have, don't try to switch back and forth between your old mpce and your B6. If you do have an acclimation period, switching back and forth will only mess with that and not allow you to fully get warmed up to your B6...it is a bigger mpce than a normal 3C that many people are used to.

    James
