    Wow - I want one. But before I start growing in preparation for next years world beard championship, how does this affect your embrochure. I notice greats like Roger Webster and Nicholas Childs have moustaches, but what is the general feeling does it make a difference.
    I could ask a few ladies I know but they may take it personal.

    doesnt make a difference to playing unless it covers the lip or alters where you place your mouthpiece i guess.
    stubble is the way forward for lazy peeps like me who cba shaving everyday.

    I find playing with a beard no problem except when you find a bit of food in the moustache when your playing, like a pork chop or a chicken leg!

    well i've had a beard for the last year, and i'm a better player now than then (although i don't think the beard has affected it either way).

    beards are definitelty in at the moment, although not full ones, nicely controlled tidy ones (like mine) make you look smart serious yet friendly...


    ...i hope.
