This seems better place to put it. Embouchure, everyone.

    This is more about the embouchure than the mouthpiece itself, anyway. I'm going to stick the topic here, as well, to get the input.
    Also willing to open up the topic to discussion on the embouchure and the pros/cons of using low and high embouchures and how to diminish the cons.

    Pops has a LOT of great advice including where to set your embouchure to start your playing.
    He says to set your chops to play a G above the staff...1 line above...
    that way you are only an octave below dubba G and you only have to go down 1 octave to play in the staff.
    He really does a MUCH better job of describing this.
    Check it out. I hope it helps.
