It shows my age, but the metal ChapStick container was circa 1956 ---- over 60 years ago !  GEEZ !!  Amazed  I gotta go take a nap !  Cheers !!  Bob

I understand that at that time "Knaubie" was the alternative to studying with Remington.  When Remington died a lot of his students got picked up by Don.  Others went insane :-P

I have a recording of the Ithaca Brass Quintet with Knaub on trombone.  I understand he used to play the trombone parts on a single trigger bass.

Not exactly ChapStick related : Don Knaub taught all the euphonium and tuba students, although there were a couple of us who studied trombone with him.  I entered ESM as a euphonium student and so was assigned Don.  I started playing trombone my Junior year using a Conn trombone loaned to me by Emory Remington but stuck with Don.  An interesting horn, that, with TIS, friction fit between bell & slide sections and an "F" valve actuated by using a leather thong !  I never looked at the Model Number.  It played great !  Now : Back to the previously scheduled program ..................

Don Knaub did play the trombone parts on a single trigger bass, a Conn 72H with a 1 1/2G Bach mouthpiece, although he did have a Reynolds Contempora bass for several years prior to the Conn.  He later became a Yamaha Clinician and played Yamaha to the end of his playing career.

Hi everyone !

Some chapsticks are good... and some are bad.

Some are good for skiing and horrible for brass playing ( like Nivea for example, it makes it hard for my lips to vibrate somehow )

SO what to choose?

What to look for exactly :

- does it leave residue?
- does it make it hard for my lips to vibrate?
- is it made with natural and nutrition rich oils ? ( avocado, calendula, ... )


Your lips should be hydrated but not soggy.

My personal favourite is the ChopSaver. I have used it for years now, with the classic one, and the SPF15 one when it is sunny out.

Here is a little article / video I made on that subject :

Hope it helps!
