Subj: [kl] Re: Correlation - tip opening and tonguing speed???
Date: Mon, 25 Sep 2000 00:03:58 -0400

As a result of working extensively with mouthpieces for the past two years, I
have found that for my personal playing I prefer a much closer tip opening
that that wich I used for years.

Ever since graduate school, I have been playing on mouthpieces with a tip
opening ca. 1.11 - 1.13 mm.

On the mouthpieces I use now, I find I am much more comfortable with a much
closer tip, anywhere from 1.00 to 1.04.

Also, I have enjoyed a much welcome improvement in speed, accuracy, and
endurance in my tonguing speed. I HAVE been playing a lot....but I played a
lot in the past.

Can I then assume, that the closer tip opening has facilitated my tonguing
speed?

I would invite opinions or anecdotal evidence eith confirming or disputing
this theory.

Regards,
Walter
