Hello Tubenet Tim,
Well if you are playing on something like a Hirsbrunner HB-2,
you cannot go wrong with that horn in probably 99.9% of the situations
you will encounter in college. Ask your teacher, for most
of the talk online here about immense-o-phones like the CSO Yorks
is really so much chest-pounding. Granted I have done my share also,
but if I had had something like a good HB2 or 2P in college (10 years ago)
I probably would not have spent the $$$ on another "bigger" horn recently.
Now, ss far as a mouthpiece goes, use what works for you,
I know thats worse than no advice at all, but it's certainly truthful!
