Subj: RE: [kl] air leak in embouchure

My suggestion is to practice long tones and focus on tightening down the
sides of the mouth (as well as ensuring all other aspects of the embouchre
are in place).

This seems to work for me; I have an occasional leak out of the left side
and long tone practice helps address it.

If I remember right, the Profile 88 mouthpieces have a different rake than a
standard mouthpiece, right?

Subject: [kl] air leak in embouchure

What can I do to correct an air leak from the right side of my mouth? I
recently switched mouthpieces from a Larry Combs 1 to a brand new Profile
88 Vandoren M-13 Lyre (it's beautiful. I'm very, very happy. and I
even get to keep it til I graduate! maybe even longer if I "forget" to
clean it for the next two years....j/k).

Anyway, I didn't have this problem with the old mouthpiece. I'm still
using the same reeds (Vandoren Traditional 3's and the legere 3 1/2 for
pep band) The leak is really bugging those around me...

for the curious, my axe is a wooden LeBlanc Normandy 4 and I have a BG
Revelation ligature...
