I have a Kaspar Cicero mouthpiece, back everyone, control yourselves,
it isn't for sale but I would like to communicate with anyone who I
could compare measurements with to see how much it has been
modified.

I also would like to purchase a Kalman Opperman mouthpiece if
anyone knows of one.

And finally a topic for discussion and that is foot tapping. I find
that it helps me in syncopated rythmns but I tend to try and tap the
rythmn itself instead of the beat in difficult passages. I have had
instructors who advocated foot tapping, who threatened to put a brick
on my foot to stop me and others who were totally apathetic about the
whole concept.I would like to hear from others and I would particularly
like to hear from people who are good at difficult rythmns and have them
explain their process for playing it correctly. I.E. do you tap your
foot, subdivide, memorize patterns or what?
