but if the different material affects the person, then it does make a difference, even if it is just mental.lilcornetgirl said:Why would it make a differance i mean it isn't the mouthpiece it is the person blowin it in it.
The mouthpiece is just a thing that you blow through the person blowing it makes the sound.
I definately noticed a difference in the sound too. Although I wouldn't say it it sounded like a Bb cornet, but that might just be if we play different instruments. Also it is a lot easier on my lips and I don't find it as hard to reach high notes but that may be just me.Just wondered if anyone had the same experience going from silver to gold with the same mouthpiece?
At a molecular level you are correct but I would challenge anybody to measure this manually.beard_4b said:Gold is smoother than silver, so therefore feels more comfortable on ur lips, however with silver there is more friction!
beard_4b said:I use an RW4B which is great, its not so deep as u get a huge mellow sound but no range out of it, but its not so shallow that u get a thin piercing sound out of it.
i use a RW4 have been told it's especially popular for front row cornet players. find it handy on back row at sSBB too!
really like the RW one's!! mine is also silver but think i'm just used tyo that
