Re: 5B or 7C?

I have used 7C for cornets and trumpets all my career especially for younger players and encouraged my more mature players to use the 5B. Endurance and range did become an issue with our last Honor Band and we switched everyone in the section to 7C mouthpieces to make it through the concert. I thought the tone would be too thin but was surprised with the results. We did use shepherds crook cornets exclusively with no trumpets in the mix for concerts but we had some trumpets in our marching band for protection.
