    Are we going to hear you play this mouthpiece?

    Let's see how...

    The obvious one - one size doesn't fit all.

    All mouthpieces and some shoes have holes in them.

    Some folk's mouthpieces are as dirty as an old pair of shoes.

    Different mouthpieces are made for different purposes, just like athletic shoes.

    All shoes and mouthpieces with the same size marked on them aren't the same size.

    The difference between a really expensive pair of shoes and a good pair is mainly the price.

    Any other ideas?

    Good looking shoes and yes to international shipping. Thanks!

    I remember when you called that mouthpiece unplayable. That was at the time when I had started playing the Selmer double-cups and thought that they were great. And you called similar things unplayable... Made me question myself, am I wrong? But I wasn't!

    I was hasty in my decision and quite wrong all around. But sometimes I think you have to progress to the right answer instead of abruptly change, which is what I did. The closer I got to the right answer, the better I played, but I always hit a wall eventually. If I hit a wall now, I'm good with that, because my conditions were met: make it through a 2-hour rehearsal and play without strain to high C (second line above the staff). Now I can concentrate on all-around improvement in my playing.
