I just wanted to say thanks for making a great horn. I’ve been playing my horn now about 4 or 5 months (I think). I had been looking for a while for a new trumpet. I played on a Yamaha 6335, and even though I liked it, it didn’t give the the response I wanted in the upper register.
I tried a different larger bore Yamaha, thinking it would open up a little, and also tried others, a large bore Bach, and Schilke, none of which gave me what I wanted. In addition, I tried small/shallow cup mouthpieces, which only tightened up the lower register.
A friend of mine (Mark Brannon) bought one of you horns, and as soon as I played it, I knew I wanted one. I’m used to it how (I played the Yamaha for 25 years) and my upper register has really opened up.
I can play up to “D” above triple “C”, very fully, and that’s on a Bach 1B mouthpiece. The lower register really fattened up too. In general, thanks for making a great horn.
