Hello, I have played a Bach 3C for 30+ years and recently switch to the Curry brand. I received my Curry 3C and 3M a few weeks ago. They both feel very comfortable and I used the 3C on a funk gig last weekend but got a little tired by the end of the 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] set. Previously when I used my Bach 3C I was tired by the end of the 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] set – so I gained endurance of one set. I am going to start using the 3M on these funk gigs. My question is: Is it better for me to do all my practicing on the 3C and then just use the 3M for the funk gigs (I kind of equate it to an on deck batter swinging 2 bats until he goes up to the plate) or am I better to do my practicing on the 3M? I got the 3C for the occasionally “legit” gigs – churches, wedding services etc… but I do most of playing in the funk band. Thanks.
