    No, you can switch the playing and the put the mouthpiece in part, according to another thread :play:

    That does seem like a brilliant bit of KT information there, the second one I've seen. Maybe my uncle was wrong :eek:

    Kingtrumpet... you have been studying your physiology, perhaps from that great medical professor, Dr. Onady, but your discussion IS very good. Good enough such that I bestow on to you an honorary MD degree, by virtue of my delusional authority. So be it known to all on TM, that August 24th is Dr. Kingtrumpet day, and remember KT... first do no harm.

    Trumpets are martial instruments--they are meant to do harm, or at least incite it. Trombones are for comic relief, baritones for trumpet players who can't cut it, and the French horn for neurotic baritone players. As for the Sousaphone, it is, uhh, is for "special" players.

    FYI, The tenor trombone mouthpiece is the same as that of the baritone or euphonium, at least it matches my euphonium which I prefer the 6.5 AL to the 12C. But I agree, it strengthens the facial muscles that in turn support the lips. Of course, with age my facial muscles are now sagging ... and is every other part of my body so it seems.

    Hope you're not inferring that the Sousaphone is for those like John Philip Sousa ... he's dead and buried in Congressional Cemetery, Washington DC. Though it is propounded and acclaimed that he played every instrument in his bands, no factual evidence is put forth that he played them all ... or any other than a violin of which he was then renown. At best, all that is factual is that he approved of the Sousaphone design, as was still only a modification of a then existing European instrument. From all I can discern, it sounded no better than a tuba or this other European one. Too, it was a real pain on my left clavicle joint and I'll not play one again. It's is very questionable if I now could ... or even lift one.
