Re: Lexan Rim

The condition of the skin, and especially timing of shaving, has been important to me for that same reason. It doesn't bother me much lately but if I play too soon after shaving the Lexan feels like it's glued to my chops. Interesting. I usually shave in the morning and practice in the evening, so ...

Re: Lexan Rim

Thanks for the elaborate response! 1) Facial hair, if applicable. That can't be it. I can't stand having any hair between my skin and my mouthpiece, so I always shave thoroughly, daily. 2) Humidity & Lip Balm Usage. In the winter, I tend to use more chop saver than I normally do. Me too, but not ver...

Lexan Rim

I have been playing on a Lexan rim (DE 102) for almost two years now, and I have been happy with it most of the time; I think I mostly liked the grip that's a little stronger than what I was used to with my silver mouthpiece before. Lately, however, it happened a few times that I feel it is too grip...

Lehár, Merry Widow

Has anybody played the Merry Widow? I might have a chance to play it later this year, but I'd like to know how much there is to play for trombones, or how difficult it is. Or does anybody happen to have a first or second trombone part that they could e-mail me? On IMSLP there's only a piano reductio...

Re: Forum forgets me...

That's interesting. I've yet to be logged out a single time since the upgrade. Same here, but a moment ago I found myself logged out for the first time. This was on iOS with Safari after I came home, so connected to WiFi; I had used it before on mobile data. During the last couple of days I switche...

Re: Bone socks? (for stands, not feet)

I'll still advocate for the Hamilton Bone Sock . They work perfectly on each of my stands (Hamilton, K&M, On-Stage). Absorbent micro fiber, soft and bell-protective, no more bell sticking to the stand dome, easy to apply (and stays with your stand). Accomplishes everything these do-it-yourself tric...

Re: Jazz "play along"

I second the recommendation for iReal Pro, I use it a lot, and it's very nice. Of course it's not the same as playing along with real musicians, but the advantages outweigh this (being able to set the tempo and key, or change some chords), and the musical quality isn't bad at all. Apart from that, I...

Re: Board structure

I totally agree that a structure that is too fine-grained should be avoided. In this particular case though, I feel that there's just no place in the current structure to discuss topics related to how to perform brass music, which for me is one of the most important topics to talk about. And "Music ...

Board structure

I'm missing a few boards that we had in TTF, and I'm unsure where else I should post topics in the existing board structure. The main one is "Performance". I'm thinking about topics such as - Should Brahms symphonies be played on an alto or tenor - Does it make sense to substitute the tuba in a bras...
