Reply To: Mouthpiece Exploration and Discovery


Another note about tubes and mouthpieces:
I recently noticed that playing with a tube, makes my Yamaha P37D sounds way more like an accordion, whereas using the mouthpiece I get more of a harmonica sound.

I also find it easier now to create nice articulations using the tube, way better than with the mouthpiece. Although it seems the opposite than the previous note that I wrote on mouthpiece vs. tube, it may relate to the lower gapping I made that makes the mouthpiece more ‘harsh’ (at the benefit of allowing low volume notes without a hisssss)

Now to a new problem – how do I play standing with a tube, without having to struggle to keep it positioned correctly in my mouth? Obviously talking about an elastic tube.
