My professor at my university wants me to play on a different mouthpiece for playing lead jazz and solos in marching band. I've never been a fan of the idea of changing mouthpieces, especially to super shallow ones.
I've been a 3C player for as long as I can remember. I've played lead for multiple summers in drum corps on a 3C, and I don't see why I have to switch. Shallower mouthpieces dont work with me. I cant get any tone out of them.
What is your personal opinions when it comes with switching mouthpieces for certain styles?
