    I was thinking the same thing! I was gong to recommend some good NZ beer but figured I'd get a big-time snark for it. :)

    Hi Ted,

    I don't use a lip balm with menthol. I can see where it would have somewhat of an analgesic effect.

    Vulgano mentioned moisture coming from the inside out. That would be best, but I just seem to have terminally dry lips (gettin' old sucks!)

    My thinking behind the lip balm is I want to produce my tone with my embrochure and musculature, I don't want to depend upon friction between my lips and the mouthpiece to maintain a tone.

    (Something tells me the above remark could start it's own thread).

    Anyway, IMHO :oops:

    Yes,

    I use the inside-out moisture trick too, and probably produce too much breath vapour. My Getzen seems to condense more breath moisture than any of my other trumpets, and dispite the Amado water keys, is susceptible to the occasional gurgling sound. I was just considering the ramifications of lip balm, rather than commenting on any problems I was having using such a product. The "problem" that I have is an academic one on your behalf.

    For those of you commenting on Aussie beer - well, have you tried anything but Fosters? The best Aussie stuff is to had in small country pubs. It should be draft beer, properly chilled, (not like the Poms have it - warm with a cold pork pie) and consumed only during one's waking moments. Aussie beer is for those of us who are thirsty - simple really.ROFL
