Re: Embochure fatigue

Would perhaps having a wider rim than what I'm used to on a certain mouthpiece possibly cause issues? I ask because I recently started experiementing with a different bass mouthpiece with a wider rim and different shape than what I normally play with. My other bass mouthpieces have always had simila...

FS: Giddings V-Max

I recently bought this mouthpiece, but it's not the best fit for me. It's a great piece, though, with a BIG sound. It's a stainless steel model. It's in great shape with hardly any signs of wear at all! Asking $100 shipped obo in the ConUS. International shipping is a possibility. Email me if you're...

Re: Embochure fatigue

What is your usual practice regimen like? Did you play more than usual on one or several days recently, and how much more? Did you play less over the holidays than usual? This past semester I was playing anywhere from an hour and a half to two and a half hours every day except sundays. That inculde...

Embochure fatigue

Hey fellow chatters! So for the past week and a half or so my embochure has been feeling more fatigued than normal very early on while practicing. My playing in general hasn't been as good either because of it and it's starting to become very frustrating. I contacted my professor about it and explai...

Re: Thoughts on a Benge 290?

I have one and I'm fairly impressed with it. Granted, I'm definetly not a pro bass player by any means and my primary instrument is tenor trombone. For what I need, the horn gets the job done. I haven't played that many basses for any decent period of time so I'm not really sure how it would stack u...

Wearing earplugs while practicing

What are your thoughts on wearing earplugs while practicing in a small room? When I'm practicing at home, I usually practice in a room about 15'x15' and I've debated about wearing earplugs while doing so. Just curious as to what other people do. Thanks in advance! Stay safe out there!
