    ewan sez:
    I would say the opposite of the above though - you have to be efficient before you can be effective.
    If that were only true.
    Effective means that an organism has gained the skills necessary to acomplish a predetermined task X number of times.
    Efficient means the organism has learned a way to use the least amount of energy to get the task done.
    When you first learned how to drive, it was hard and scary. Now, after a couple of years behind the wheel, you can text, eat a sandwich, dry your nails, check out the GPS, and email your homework to your teacher, all while driving.
    The organism needs a effective set-up before it should shop for a efficient set-up.

    Exactly! All I'm trying to say is that until the organism has learned how to be the most efficient, it's not operating at it's most effective.

    This would mean that colorless green ideas did sleep furiously. Deep down I always thought they did.

    The screamer mouthpieces that I have heard when used by colleagues:
    Bach 1 1/2C, 3C, 5C, 7C, 7D, 7E, 10 1/2C, 10 1/2E
    Schilke 14B, 14A4A, 13A4A, 11, 6A4A
    Monette B2, B2LD, B2L, B3L, B4L, B5, B6, Rapa model
    4 or 5 different Marcienkewicz models
    4 or 5 Tilz models
    several Yamaha models

    I haven't listened to everybody, so the list is probably only a couple of % complete. Just pick one, any one. Your range for sure will be the same as those other players. We know that hardWARE is the answer and not hardWORK.

    But, actually -- with my Asymmetric 3C+544 -- which may be a hiking boot, since the cup is deep. I can still run the sprint -- with enough practice, I think that my legs or lips will strengthen enough to run the sprint as fast as I could have with the sneakers..... Yes I am certain that I feel more comfortable running in the hiking boots anyhow.

    practice, practice, and practice -- find the right hiking boot for your lips. lol --- that is so funny
    ps. after you try the pressure trick -- do the opposite -- hold the trumpet just out of reach of your lips and push your lips to the trumpet mouthpiece, when they touch enough to seal the air --try that.
