    I get the ring on my lip too, my embouchure is just slightly left of the center of my lips and it only shows on the top one. I get it after I play for more than 5 minutes or so.

    The ring is only a sign that irritation was present. It is not proof of pressure!

    Like several others, I have some discoloration but no indentation after playing. In my mind it's still a "ring" and voted as such. I get this even playing soft, low, longtones and believe it's a sign of different skin types, not necessarily pressure.
