As my user id implies I am a master wannabe, I haven't played seriously for more years than I care to mention and there are a lot of things I have forgotten or really never knew. My situations is this, I have been playing my '61 Connestallation and custom modified Martin Handcraft 'C' w/parduba mouthpiece in church for the last 3 or 4 years and about a year ago one of the parishiners gave me a 60's vintage couesnon fluglehorn with original mouthpiece. This flugel I have found out is one of the more sought after horns and it does sound great. I have recently started playing in a big band style dance band and am looking for more opportunities to play. I also enjoy very much playing Canadian Brass style music some of which would be better if I had a piccolo trumpet. I am currently looking for a reasonably priced pic. My question is this, does anyone have any insight on what effect switching between the different horns might have on my overall lip development & endurance. I am pondering the idea of getting the same mouthpiece for all horns if possible. Any thoughts?
