 Re: Double Lip Embouchure Pain

A lot of people use double lip for practice and single lip for extended playing. This sort of takes the pressure off the upper lip, yet your sound should be pretty much the same. If I'm playing for 3 or 4 hours on a given day the upper lip takes a beating. The heavier reed you use can make playing a bit uncomfortable.

Some of the DL players I've met use a long close facing. This includes me. I'm playing around a 1.02mm MP.

I would suggest switching to single lip once you begin to feel soreness. Why suffer? Also, perhaps look for a long faced MP.
