    This is a neat event! A friend is doing it with his trumpet and his father's WWII uniform. I think he is taking my suggestion to work with another trumpet player and do echo taps. The CG Band used...

    I'm not sure you want to seal air - a little circulation might be more healthy for you and the mouthpiece.

    The problem you are having is probably a reaction to the tanning agents in leather. I...

    The page says it fits all French-made Bessons. I tend to think of Bessons as having been made in England until bankruptcy, and now in Germany. Was/is there a French phase in there?

    Hiram Diaz - In an Unexpected Way!

    Most of us know what a brilliant player Hiram Diaz is. But until I found this on the Marine Band's FB feed I had no idea what a good singer he is!

    This message got sidetracked because the system wasn't sure if it was valid. I validated it, so I'm commenting to "bump" it into higher visibility. Besson 700 series is not uncommon, and some folks...

    Sticky: FS: Very Nice Willson 2950 in Silver

    The 2950 is the model that (I believe) Willson uses to attract players who like a large sound (as opposed to the more compact sound of the 2900). It has a large shank receiver and a larger bell than...

    This horn has been on the market for a while now. If it is of interest, it might be a good time to make the seller a lower offer.

    Thanks, Doug. I wondered about that, but I thought perhaps there had been some further merging that I didn't know about! Anyway, I just corrected the thread title.

    The serial number suggests it was made in 1969, so it should have a medium shank (unless someone modified it). If so, a Wick 4AM would match the horn very well. The "M" indicates a medium shank, and...
