    What about a 51D? It is similar to the BB1, but its rim isn't as sharp. Also, Parker makes a 51D version.

    Having been raised catholic, I can say that the Church is cheap. In high school, I played quite a few times with a group in various Protestant churches. They always paid $25-50 per player. The few...

    This made me think about a time I was ask to play in a small brass group for a church service. We had a brief rehearsal before the service and everything was fine. What they neglected to tell us was...

    Mouthpiece placement depends on the person. If someone is telling you that is should be 50/50, they my be very wrong. My placement is about 70/30 on the upper lip. You may consider contacting Doug...

    I think even that would be better than dealing with a musicians mask. Getting the mouthpiece in the opening takes some fiddling around. So you need to leave the mouthpiece in the mask unless you have...
