Re: Trumpet Mouthpieces
Watch out what you say around the other trumpet players if you have one move to a different mouthpiece. A number of years ago I had an eighth grader with great range and technique, but big lips and a stuffy sound. I handed him a 3C I got from the HS director, and his sound improved by leaps and bounds, and he got positive comments from us and from his section.
Skip to the next Monday. All of a sudden, the section sounded TERRIBLE in warmup. I discovered that 4 more of my trumpets had talked their parents into getting them 3Cs over the weekend!
What trumpet mouthpiece do your beginners start on?
What trumpet mouthpiece do your high school players play on?
I understand there is not a one size fits all when it comes to mouthpieces. I am just looking for a majority answer.
