Since this website used to reside at a different address, until the idiots who run my web hosting somehow didn’t notify me of a domain name renewal, I doubt many of you (well, the one or two who’ve visited so far) are familiar with the Trumpet Chronicles. This was a series of articles I wrote as I wandered my way through the intricacies of trumpet selection and mouthpiece searching.

So, last night I was at band practice. We were quickly running through some of the Christmas music for our first concert on the 13th. I was using the Yamaha 11 mouthpiece I mentioned in a previous post with my silver Olds Ambassador trumpet. Strangely, my lip got really tired way early in the practice, long before I expected it to.
