I am a high school senior in New York, studying lots of interesting stuff including Comp Sci and music and math. I play the trumpet, flugelhorn, bass, and guitar. I have used Apple gear (Macs, iPhones, and iPods) for years, and have become a cheap IT guy for local small businesses. I have recently started iOS development, see my website for more info!

comment Proper way to finger Flugelhorn
I have tiny hands, but find I play much more expressively with the meat of my fingers rather than the tips.

I think it also depends on where on the fretboard you're playing. The lower down (like metal) it is, I think higher action becomes less of a problem. (lets you pick hard, reduces buzz for the open chords, etc)

I love my current mouthpiece, I'm just looking for a mouthpiece that would fill a bit of a different role.

We have an eight person section, so the flugel really helps round out the sound from the other trumpets. That isn't the issue.

True. thing is, I play my flugel for cornet parts in my HS Wind Ensemble and some of them can get a bit rangy, in addition to jazz pieces.

Thanks. I've got a Yamaha Bobby Shew Custom, so my guess is it can go as high as any other flugel-he sure can play high.
