    I think most players try to evoke a solemn mood and play according to their sense of that. In general, the Army is the authority on such matters, and their sound sample has vibrato:

    I was thinking about that myself, and I'm not sure if there is any "etiquette" attached to this. That's not what I would say myself, but that format of greeting has become commonplace for general...

    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?

    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...
