    At least now there are plastic MPs available.
    Winter parades when I was in HS in Indiana were rough.
    With a Kelly MP it would have been much easier.

    I have contacted all of the local music stores in quest of a tube of Chopsaver to try. None of them have ever heard of it. Now what? I refuse to use my credit card except face to face.

    Sorry for being lazy.

    MP = Mouth Piece

    Kelly makes them in lexan and they are great for cold not to mention the cool colors.

    For most playing I use my Wedge MP and LOVE it.

    I am typing with one hand because my lymphoma still has my right arm paralyzed for now.
    I have experience in technical writing and usually spell out any shorthand the first time I use it.

    Maybe trade a trumpet for a box of them? If anybody close by has any, of course. I picked up a tube lying on a counter at my music store and said I'd take a couple more (for my niece and nephew), and they told this was all they had. More coming, supposedly, but this was nearly a month ago.

    Duh, I can't believe I didn't get that the first time around. Sorry everyone for the stupidity.
    I got my first two tubes of ChopSaver at a Drum Corps International competition. Carolina Crown had it in their trailer. Other than that, oldlou, I don't know where to buy it.

    i find that if i put lip balm or chapstick on my lips and leave it there it actually makes my lips worse later, but if i put some on and wipe it off soon after it works better for some reason.

    I use this stuff called Aquaphor Healing Ointment (Advanced Therapy) for dry or cracked skin. It works so well for chapped lips, better than anything else I have tried. You can get it at any supermarket or drug store. My lips get really really chapped. Sometimes so bad I can barely play. But this stuff does the job.
