Bob, I always enjoy your passion for the particulars but this is overstating and oversimplifying, and I'm sure you know that..... Change it to ""may" need serious work", or even "most likely" and you'll have a better statement. Your point about the patches often being placed too high is spot on and bears repeating.

Btw, I use a thick patch. One reason is that the 'grip' of it allows me to be more flexible with the placement of my top lip when playing single lip. Sometimes this is a very nice option to have for shaping the sound. I use the same patch for months at a time. I usually only need to replace a patch when doing a thorough cleaning of the mouthpiece.
