Man I would NOT do this at all. Its not even the same type of buzz and the constraints on your airstream are so much more different than when you play for real. The mouthpiece placed on the lips should be what causes the buzz not the excessive firming of muscles around your mouth needed to do this. Your embouchure should be as natural as possible for your buzz to sound its best. Buzzing without the mouthpiece only reinforces bad habits. As for Jacobs against Stamp; I go with Jacobs.
