Here's a video of Herseth in his studio. Certainly far more than 1 mouthpiece. Pretty cool

Enjoyed your video Jayson. Hope you've found "the one"!

Ha! A couple of years ago, I visited my college roommate from 1969. After sitting in his studio for a few minutes catching up on life, he marched out many classic horns from years past including one of Al Hirt's old horns complete with photos of Al Hirt and himself over the years. He also produced a box (not small) of mouthpieces that have been his favourites over many decades including one of mine from at least 30 years ago. After a while he produced one of my old horns that, after playing a bit and much diplomacy, made the trip home with me.

I was one of the "lucky" players that never went on the mouthpiece or horn safari, though I tried a few mouthpieces during my teen years before finding the right one back in 1972, which was the Reeves 1S695 (I mostly played Big Band lead and Latin bands back then). I have played the Reeves 41 rim (the successor to the #1) ever since! I use different bottoms depending on the music requirements, but the 41 Rim stays the same. After many years of playing, I have developed what another Trumpet player friend has called "topography" on my upper lip which fits the 41 perfectly, so changing has never been a thought. I feel the same way about horns and I still have and play most of the horns that I have ever owned. If it works, why mess with it?

Yep. Thanks. Still only have the one...the same one.

And, Greg Black and his pieces are just amazing. He must be a wizard or something, because it seems like it would have taken one to end my safari, but he did it!

I have a confession to make. I only own one mouthpiece. In fact, for about the last two months, I've only owned one mouthpiece. I have no desire to buy another mouthpiece, ever, unless I need something more specialized one day.

If you happen to be curious, I'm on a Greg Black 3CD/25/9

One day I'd like to be back in that place. I think that if I ever stop playing in a setting where I'm looking to get that bright, cutting sound, I may eventually get to a place where I can find one mouthpiece and stick with it - that's what I did years ago, and I did some of my best playing at that point in my life.
