    Hi, i have been using a yamaha short shank mouthpiece in my strad long cornet for a while with no issues. I have just got a strad cornet (30 years old about the same age as the long cornet) and the yamaha mouthpiece seems a bit loose, can any one offer advice please?

    Get the gap on the horn checked out, it could be worn

    That's what I meant, good thing we can edit. Does the mouthpiece go further in than on your other cornet?

    It is just a receiver issue, PM Ivan here and he can help. It has happened with a good friends Getzen, a schilke would fit but a yamaha would not. The caught at different areas. Simple fix.

    He PMed me. Basically we would need to see pictures. He seems to have an obstruction inside the mouthpiece receiver/lead pipe of his newer purchased cornet.
