    One of my trumpet guys swears that you should always practice on your main piece, I feel a little different on that due to how my chops may feel the next day...but again if it works for you then go for it!

    I played the kelly screamer in my marching band for a year and had difficulty switching back to the 3c I use in concert/jazz band. My friend who also used the piece had a similar issue. I think it may have something to do with the brand as nowadays I switch between a 3c for concert band and a schilke 12a4a for lead trumpet in jazz band with no problems.
