    OK - Between the Wick "Heritage" and "regular" cornet mpcs - which do you like the best and why.

    Love my heritage mouthpiece - Wick 3B. I get a much nicer sound out of it than any other mouthpiece I have played on.

    Also, because I have a fixed ceramic brace, the wide rim spreads the pressure much more easily. If I try and play on a 'normal' wick mouthpiece then the cuts, ulcers and splits I get compared to the heritage are not pretty. I tried to go back to a normal one when my front teeth shifted because I started to loose air out the side of my face. However, as my front teeth are pretty straight now that (thankfully) seems to have stopped.

    Heritage every time, use for both Sop and Bb.
    My only problem is that it looks horrible and bling...

    Played on a heritage 4 for over a year but have now gone back to my Wick Webster 3 as it is more comfortable to play on.

    Agreed. Looks like something a pimp would wear around his neck in a bad gang movie.
