 Re: Apples vs oranges ? ; Buffet Crampon R13 vs Selmer 10G ?

The key is producing enough pressure differential between what air pressure is in you mouth vs. the air pressure of the air column in the instrument (which is zero). I find it easiest to experience if you allow your cheeks to expand. With cheeks puffed out (ONLY FOR THE SAKE OF FEELING, NOT FOR PLAYING!!!!) you should feel a mild stretching all around where the cheeks attach.


Another good analogy is to use as much active "pushing" as you would to blow up a moderately resistant balloon. This is the case no matter what strength reed or openness of mouthpiece you use. In fact there really need not be ANY resistance to your reed/mouthpiece system; the easier the better!


That all said as a dedicated musician you SHOULD want an instrument that makes achieving all the musical elements over which you have control............easy (or rather, as easy as possible). And that is where the subjectivity and variety comes in.
