RE: Hello! Welcome to TB, who are you?
I’m Dennis, I’m a father of 3, a happy husband and loyal employee of the company I work for. I’ve been an electrician for 20 years. Been playing trumpet for 32 years.
Dabbled in rock bands a couple times playing bass.
Nowadays I also play baritone, actually more so than trumpet. I also played cornet for a couple years
I also enjoy kayaking and fishing
I used to be into guns but not anymore
I still pick a flattop now and again
And enjoy gardening, foraging and practice of all types of self sustainability
RE: Mouthpiece too large?
I love the 5b for general Bb playing. I don’t believe we should play the smallest piece we can play comfortably......
Unless I guess most of our playing is in the upper range.
I think MP choice should depend on what you’re expected to play. If most of what is expected is in the mid range then a larger piece I feel will give the best sound and flexibility.
Although I’m not a pro, and not even a great amateur. I’m an electrician by trade.

Not sure where any of these come from. Heard them all my life, and now I use them quite a bit. My grandpa said that his grandma use to say the first one when he was a little boy. So it’s at least 150 years old
The second one is something I picked up in middle school from my history teacher
The last is something every new guy is told when he does something stupid
