[Solved] Endurance on 7C mouthpiece
I know I am just a beginner who has only been playing for a short time and don’t really have well developed chops. I was just wondering on average how long can your second and third year students play songs like this on a 7C mouthpiece that keep going kind of high to kind of low. Also how do their chops hold up to higher songs. Do any of them play lead in a band? How much range do they normally have? How do they handle switch to different keys of trumpet? I just want to know what I have to look forward to if I choose to play a 7C mouthpiece.
P.S. I played a 7C for 7 years won 5 Solo and ensemble metals on it hit a G above high C on it in a private lesson with the trumpet professor from Eastern Michigan University played first part in a high school band but the 1SB is far better. Also I showed some videos and played for some other musicians and they all said I sound better on the 1SB. They included
‘Former trumpet player from the Trump Corporation and Juliard graduate, Former 5th chair trumpet of Dallas Symphony and SMU grad in music or trumpet, Paino player from church who is currently in college for music. Trombone player from local band Because trombonists are people too. National Gaurd band director main instrument is Clarinet has Masters in music Ed. My band director her main instrument is trumpet and she is a middle school band director and last my girlfriend who played trumpet in middle school for a year.
I also want to point out when I played Taps I used the 1SB mouthpiece and I was paid (no money just a chicken dinner and cheese cake) making me a professional cornet player.
