What should you do when your mouthpiece is stuck on your trumpet without spending money?

The best way to remove a mouthpiece is with a mouthpiece puller. Most music stores will have a puller, and some will even pull mouthpieces for free. You will get a lot of other suggestions on how to pull the mouthpiece. The problem is, if you use pliers or other inappropriate tools, even with padding of some kind, you can damage the trumpet. The only relatively safe way to try it yourself is to hold the trumpet's mouthpiece tube (ahead of the mouthpiece) under the hot water tap for a couple of minutes. While doing this, hold a package of frozen vegetables, or the like, around the mouthpiece. The idea is to get the mouthpiece as cold as possible, and the pipe as warm as possible. Then, using a hot pad, try to extract the mouthpiece. This may or may not work (it does most of the time) but if it doesn't, it causes no harm to the trumpet.

What is the best trumpet mouthpiece?

Any Bach mouthpiece. I have been playing with them for years and they have never let me down. Trumpets do not have a built in mouthpiece because not all mouthpieces work as well as others for different people. There are many very good mouthpieces. The best mouthpiece is the one that fits your mouth the best. IE: If you have thin lips, a deep/wide mouthpiece probably won't work well for you. If you have thick lips, a shallow/thin mouthpiece probably won't work well for you. Bach, Schilke, Monette, and several other companies make very good mouthpieces.

How do you adapt a trumpet mouthpiece to a cornet?

You would have to make some kind of adapter that would allow the larger trumpet mouthpiece fit into the smaller cornet leadpipe. I don't think anyone does that. It's easier, and more correct, just to buy a cornet mouthpiece since a cornet mouthpiece is designed specifically to fit a cornet.

How do you get a trumpet mouthpiece off that is stuck?

Wrap masking tape on the trumpet and the mouthpiece were the mouthpiece goes in to the trumpet and twist opposite ways with 2 pliers it is a crude way but it works other wise take it in to a music shop and get them to do it Using pliers is really not a good way to try to remove a stuck mouthpiece. If you put any pressure on the brace, you can break it or cause it to come loose. The best way is to use a mouthpiece puller. Most music stores will have a puller in stock, and some will even pull the mouthpiece for free.
