This may sound like a silly concern. I have been asked to be on a Movember team and grow a mustashe, and I think for fun I will grow one like Frank Zappa who unfortunately succumb to prostate cancer. I am the type of player who must be clean shaven. I like and need to feel the contact of the rim on my skin. In fact, I shave and brush my teeth before every practice, which is why my wife calls the trumpet my mistress. I can not imagine playing with a mustashe although some of my trumpet heros did. Do players with facial hair find a way to move it aside so that the mouthpiece actually make contact with the skin, or mostly makes contact?
