Having played a recording Conn quite a lot, I've found that balance is everything. If you're playing a 2XJ Conn, they were intended to be played with one tuning bit. Adjust ing the mouthpiece angle can help you get the instrument into a balanced position, which makes life a lot easier. If it is balanced, you can relax a bit and play it withoput a "death grip". E-mail me privately if you'd like.
