Well, yeah... it's just a thought. I don't check this as often as I would like, but maybe we could increase membership? I dunno.

I think my band director has some mouthpeice which is apparently amazing for playing upper-register stuff. However, I think I actually rival him when it comes to volume.

(If nobody has noticed, I'm kinda the stereotypical egotistical jackass trumpet guy who always has to brag about range and volume).

Damn ego...

i can occasionally hit an E above the staff with my 14A4A. (made by Schilke) it's a perfect pep/marching band, and jazz mouthpiece. at least for me. i tried going back to my 7c and it was really weird.

I use a custom 7C (or is it a 10?) with a 3C rim. Yeah baby, rock the screw on rim. And I can hit an Eb above the staff, as long as we're showing off here.

I use a 3C. Last year my director switched me from a 7C, he said the 3C would fit my lips better. I also tried a 1C. I couldn't play shit with that. Now when I go back to 7C, I lose a bit of range.

Since everybody else is doing it, I figure I might as well tell you all. I can hit a B above the staff.

I can hit a high D above the staff with a 3C and and D with a 5C.

Just out of curiousity, what size mouth piece does everyone use?


shit.... i meant F with a 5C...
