Hi everyone, first thread here. I'm in my second to last high school year, doing pretty much everything trumpet-related. I got lead in the school big-band but I gave it away in favour of 2nd; and the solos (not to mention comfort) that comes with it. I play with a downstream embouchre that gives me a fat, clean and warm sound (or so I'm told ). Only trouble is, my embouchre really limits my upper register so much that my chops are gone after a couple CCs. I know that next year I won't have the luxury of taking 2nd parts, so I was wondering if it would be better to switch to an upstream embouchre in favour of the substantial range increase I get, yet sacrificing the sound quality I have currently. Any thoughts?
