So I had a little bout with cancer, and haven't played in a few months- as, if wasn't sleeping, I was working or being microwaved. I picked up my horns yesterday and I had a few observations:
1. My Xeno is a very inferior horn to my Connstellation 28b- but I already knew that.
2. My Warburton 1MD felt like a cavern
3. I slipped in my custom ACB lead piece and wailed up high for about 20 minutes before it all fell apart, and the fact I could do that surprised the hell out me! I think Trent got that MP right!
So, here's the point:
Should I just suck it up and play through on the 1MD until my chops come back? Should I use the lead piece until my chops come back? Or, should I use my modified middle-of-the-road Bach 1D (flatter rim, cup at 3c depth) before I go to either specialty MP- albeit the legit piece, or the lead piece?
PS: I'm thinking common sense says use the middle-of-the-road piece...But, every time I've come back from some roadblock I usually beat myself into shape on the biggest MP possible.
