...more like too weak a mouth ;)

With a Vandoren M15 and #3 reeds, the set of closer easier setups, let's say, is far smaller than the set of shorter lay, more open tip, hard reeds ones. :)

My pain, as I've described is two fold. First there's the pain of the teeth on the upper gums, then there's muscle fatigue. The latter is far more tolerable and something that I imagine one builds up tolerance against with time: no different that first learning to play. I'm using muscles that I haven't as actually engaged before as much, now when playing with double lip embouchure and as far as I'm concerned, such muscle fatigue is simply "par for the course."

The for more concerning biting pain though I did have some advancement on today. If came in the form of Santa-Amazon delivering 1" wide floral tape I ordered.

Until this time only narrower rows were available at my local brick and mortar stores.

The wider tape really makes a difference for me: it being wide enough to cover both my front top teeth. Then, it's simply a matter of taking about a 1' long piece of this floral tape and folding it over on itself enough times to be the right size and level of cushioning.

With narrower rolls I was dealing with 2 of the three dimension coverage issues: width and thickness.
