New York, N.Y.
Trumpet player on the Late Night with David Letterman TV show. Officially plays and endorses Flip Oakes “Wild Thing Trumpet”
A great horn and Flip is a great guy. He will help fit you with the right horn, tuning slide, Flugel, or whatever you need. The “Wild Thing” is different than any horn I have ever played. The big bore is surprisingly easy to fill to produce that big ballsy sound.
Thanks Flip for making the “perfect horn“!
WILD THING UPDATE
I have had my “Wild Thing” trumpet and flugel horn for 5 years now.
They both still play great. what ease. Usually after 2 or 3 years you get tired of your horn and need to tweak your sound and equipment. But not with the Wild Thing.
I play them both every night on “THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN”, We play with so many different artists throughout the year. Other players have 2 or 3 different horns for different situations. The “WILD THING ” works for all for all of them.
Recently I performed at “THE CONCERT FOR NEW YORK ” in Madison Square Garden .
The wild thing trumpet was the only horn I needed for all these different acts. It is so versatile and free blowing . It is a joy to play. I am so happy I found the “WILD THING ” trumpet . I could never even
think of switching to another horn again.
