    Just wondering if anyone out there uses a tone booster or a sleeve, thinking of buying one to enhance my trumpet playing.

    Any thoughts or advice would be great!

    What sort of makes/models are people using?

    I used one for a while on my cornet and got on quite well with it. I found that it gave me more security of pitching when in the higher register and also helped to develop the tone. I only stopped using it cos I changed my mouthpiece and it doesn't fit round the rim anymore! It is just a standard Denis Wick booster.

    I have one on my trumpet mouthpiece because I tried it in the shop and got it stuck. It was so stuck that I had to buy it and hav't managed to get it off since!!! Doh!
