> What do brass players say when you ask them why they do it?

The only explanation I've ever gotten is that it helps dissipate blood that has pooled or accumulated in their lips and somehow prevents some sort of slight damage that's supposed to result the next day if they don't warm down and that might make the lip tissue less flexible.

I've known a handful of trumpet players who have insisted on doing this and on its importance. I'm not convinced it does anything real for a brass player, but I don't play brass instruments in any serious way so can't say one way or the other. I don't think warming down does anything important for a reed player if for no other reason than that the lips don't have to vibrate.
