    I also use one, helps with air control as well as buzzing.

    Re: mouth piece

    playing the trumpet is the sum of many things - not any one particular exercize.

    I do buzz a little bit each day - maybe 5 minutes. I do not need a trombone mouthpiece to relax although I play the tenor horn and tuba on occasion.

    More critical to success is what you do with the TRUMPET. Your daily routine with long tones, slurs, scales, intervals and most importantly MUSIC will determine how fast you progress.

    So, my take is that a trombone mouthpiece does NOTHING better than a trumpet mouthpiece. It does not help with air control, that happens when you play TRUMPET because the air flows much differently than with a mouthpiece alone.
    Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

    I'm not a big fan mouthpiece buzzing. I might do it for a few seconds before warming up,but that's all.I find if I over do it,my chops have a tendency spread. Then again I know some players that mouthpiece buzz every chance they get with not ill affects. Of course they are all trumpet players using trumpet mouthpieces not trombone.

    I was always under the impression that mouthpiece buzzing is the "poor mans practice session" when time, situation, and circumstance wont let you use your hammer the old fashioned way. It could be that there is some advantage but I think it is minimal. I may get blasted for this but buzzing is IMHO mostly a waste of time. And to use a mouthpiece from a trombone just doesnt sound right to me. More time or higher quality time behind the horn will benefit you faster than plain buzzing. If you need to practice at work or in church try double or triple tounging for exercise. Everyone needs a faster toung sometimes. Best wishes.

    I'm surprised it fits the exhaust pipe. Must be a small car.
    Nothing is more contagious or tenacious than music. Once you are exposed it gets inside you and you can never get rid of it. It is also non-discriminating. It can be Ride of the Valkyries, In a Gadda da Vida, the Jeopardy 15 second thinking tune, your most disliked commercial jingle - it doesn't matter. Once triggered, off you go, like it or not.
