Understanding 5mm body styles
Choosing the 5MM Body style that's best for your playing situation can make or break a performance. Projecting too little or too much results in more or less feedback to you, the player, and your ensemble. Small rooms often require us to play with finesse in a way that communicates with the audience with care. Medium and large rooms vary greatly in acoustic character posing even great challenges when balancing projection, efficiency and feedback. To simplify the selection process, I have created the following three question process that charts out the most common performance situations.
#1 - Does your performance feature trumpet as a primary voice in the ensemble?
#2 - Is there potential that musicians in your ensemble may have difficulty hearing you play?
#3 - Is there potential that you may have difficulty hearing yourself play?
