    Hello
    Fairly new to brass banding but been playing trumpet/flugelhorn since the 80's currently being the oddball front desk cornet man in a Scottish 3rd section band playing on an Olds special cornet with custom made slide triggers- I did run stirling marathon playing cornet for charity this year

    You ran and played at the same time? That's pretty awesome!

    No! Really??
    :rolleyes:

    I'd have my work cut out even to walk the length of a football pitch and play at the same time!

    The only mouthpiece that would save me from serious injury during a marathon would have to come with a motor and wheels!

    I think the technical term for such 'mouthpieces' is exhaust pipes, Mesmerist!
    :D

    Surely, if Giles was taking part in a race, it should be a Vincent Bach Lightning?
    :cool:

    I have used Bach mouthpieces but mainly for trumpet rather then cornet - perhaps I'll patent a plastic memory foam rimmed mouthpiece and call in MarathonH
