"This new Wedge Mouthpiece came to me just at the right time. I'm the Second Horn player in the Calgary Philharmonic, and we had a Beethoven Festival coming up. You all know how the Second Horn plays everything, and Beethoven can be brutal on the lip. Well, our orchestra had this idea to do the symphonies consecutively, and the last three concerts were the Fourth through Ninth Symphonies on consecutive nights, with dress rehearsals every morning. On top of it all, we were recording the Fifth and the Eighth, with recording sessions after the concerts. Crazy, right? I knew how this was going to cut up my lip, and I wasn't looking forward to it.

I'm not an equipment changer. Before this I had been playing a Holton MC for about thirty years. Then two weeks before the festival Dr. Dave provided me with one of his Wedge Mouthpieces. The bottom of the rim looked so fat and round I immediately thought, "Hey this won't cut me up as bad as what I'm playing", but of course I had to check out how it played first. It took a couple of days to get used to it, but it felt good. I played the Wedge for the festival, and I played fine. I still got cut up, but not as much as I expected. Those big skips that Beethoven liked to write were not a problem. I'm happy. The Horn section is happy. My Music Director is happy. I'm not going back to my Holton MC. I play the Wedge from here out.

Now, can Dr. Dave make a wooden Wedge Mouthpiece for my Alphorn?"
