I used to play a Jet-Tone, but now I've gone Bach,
Trumpet - Benge (MLP bore)
Flugelhorn - Schilke 1040
Bass - Ibanez SR755
I used tape on my mouthpiece in marching band, since we did a lot of horn flips, "swing" marching, and other crazy maneuvers that would cause parts to go flying on a regular basis... and the tape, while it prevented flight, did not stick to the mouthpiece nor horn very well...a lot of trumpets [except for those with my same problem] couldn't begin to fathom how my mouthpiece would alternately fall out or get stuck, and they would say "well, just twist in in place"...then I'd demo how the mouthpiece would loosen itself up..."well, that sucks"
But tape solved the problem without any mods to my mouthpiece or mouthpiece receiver...
But a neat story that sounds like it ended fairly well.
