Never seen this mouthpiece before? An old model?

I was just at a University this past week and I worked with about 50 or more brass players, from beginners in a brass methods class to professionals, on trumpet, horn, trombone, and tuba.  I don't actually remember how that particular student played, but every player needed help in some way and ended up playing significantly better.  There was one who was as I described above, and I know he benefitted from having a better formation whether it buzzed or not.  I taught everybody else I worked with to buzz successfully, including the brass methods students who were pretty much total beginners who played other non-brass instruments.

Nice looking horns. I've always wanted a 79H.

I just had one who had the right formation and could blow air through it but didn't get an actual buzz.  I consider that to be OK too, and infinitely better than buzzing on a bad formation.

How was this player on the instrument?

One exercise that was recommended to me was to play F in 6th ( Tenor Clef  ) and slowly gliss up to Bb in 1st. Then try it with G->C. Work up to C -> F.

Thanks for all the good advice. Yesterday was a bad day - dry and a bit of a breeze. Perfect for weather for pollination. Today a bit better - rained most of the day.

I'm seeing my dr on Tues and I think I'll ask for a referral to an allergist.

I will be in a position soon to offer rims on a stick in any size you might want.
Let me know if you'd be interested.  I haven't figured out a price yet.

However I'm much more a fan of freebuzzing... IF you do it right.
I have been almost 100% successful at teaching every player I've worked with to freebuzz correctly for their own face.

I'm willing to back up these facts with a video if naysayers want.
Please do.
It's always interesting to hear the players on the forum no matter who they are.

(There are plenty of videos of my playing on YouTube)

Sirach 23 text

Highlights

 - Control yourself

Summary

 - O Lord protect me from ruining myself by not being self controlled
 - Control what you say cause it it can get you into all sorts of trouble if you don't
 - Illicit sex will get you into trouble
   - men will be punished by God
   - women will be punished by the assembly

Questions and Observations

1) The first paragraph continues on from the last couple of verses in chapter 22
2) illicit sex: men can hide it so they will think that they can get away with it. So Sirach understands that men will have to be punished by God who sees all.  But this is typically not the case for women, who has to face obvious consequences for their actions and can be punished by the local assembly. Obviously our atheist will see this differently.

2) And their take on children's duties is novel to modern eyes. "The birth of a daughter is a loss", eh? Rarely is patriarchal doctrine so flagrantly codified. And in the Christian holy book too. No wonder we still have some weird gender-based hang-ups. Ben Sira's recommendation of regular thrashing is not one for modern eyes either.

Just pointing out that this isn't really part of the Christian Holy book for Protestants, so I've got no problem agreeing with your dislike for this.

4) I can't work out whether he is or isn't lumping the "ungodly" in with the fools. If he is, <insert obvious observation here>.

Wisdom literature does tend to do that lumping doesn't it.
