So I just got my new prana mouthpiece, but I am getting tired very easly after like 45 minutes my chops just run out and I cant hit anything above a c in the staff. is it because of the backbore? if it is how do i get used to it?

You might be trying a bit too hard. I feel I sound fluffy on mine so I try and articulate more cleanly and sound brighter only to find that it sounded OK out in the audience with less effort being put in. You might be putting too much in.

Might be worth practicing on it very quietly doing schlossberg studies etc to get more acclimatised to how it works.

It may take some time to get use to the Prana. Prana's have larger throats in addition to the Prana back-bore. Just takes more air.

Good advice above.. also make sure you have read Dave's own suggestions:

It took me about a year of off-and-on playing to finally feel I am in the Monette groove.
