    I have a problem with spit accumulating in the MO and in my mouth when I play, it makes the sound fuzzy. It has only been recently and not too often. Any one have thoughts on what could cause it?

    What is the "MO"? Sometimes i find that I play "wetter" on some days than others. Not sure why that happens. I try to not play when i'm starving because that'll make you salivate. Also, don't eat food right before you play (unless you brush), especially sugary foods. I try to brush before i play every day and it seems to help if i wait 5 minutes or so before picking up the horn. That's all I've really come up with.......:-)
