Still the main squeeze! 19072X with a FR84S with commercial backbore. I found the S cup really helps add some friendly compression and resistance to the “open” 43 leadpipe and venturi. Much more so than the M cup with the exact same backbore. Horn / mouthpiece / player combo is so important! That same S cup becomes a bit too compact for me on my 37 or my 8B.

Anyone like pre 100k Bachs? Been working on this 37 for a while and it is ready to go. Such a cool horn! Two piece valve casing, 6 o clock seam, wide foot braces, no trauma past or present, raw brass.

The “Hubbard” setup at rehearsal this morning. 63 Conn 8B and a Couesnon. I absolutely love this combo. Makes me not want to sell them every time I play them!

Look at this pretty Flugel! A very rare Scodwell Copper made by Kanstul. The body is similar to the 1025 Chicago which is based off the vintage French Besson. The bell is Tony’s copy of a Clark Terry Selmer. Tone is compact, sweet, and direct.

Finally for sale! Here is an early LA Olds Super with the rare brass bell garland. It is in great condition with no dents or dings and minor signs of previous repair. The alignment was absolutely terrible and if you have ever tried to align an early Olds horn before you know how finicky these horns can be! This was is clean, aligned, and a great player. It is a bright horn and would be perfect for period correct Big Band music.

A great “early” LA Olds Super with the somewhat rare brass bell garland. A great big band horn that tends to be bright. This horn had the worst alignment I have ever seen on a horn! After getting that squared away, it is an amazing player. No dents or dings and only minor signs of repair. Horn is polished raw brass.

It’s hard to describe just how good these new trumpets are playing and sounding. Think of the sound of the best MTV or Bronx horns and combine that with modern manufacturing and playability and you will get these new 190’s. Make sure you schedule a visit with the Bach miracle worker as soon as you can.

New Years Resolution - play more of this Conn 8B Artist. Probably my favorite (non NY Bach) vintage trumpet. It’s funny - it plays both the darkest and the brightest of all my horns depending on mouthpiece. Truly a super horn with tons of core.

Looking for a custom double or triple gig bag built to your requirements? Look no further than Messina Covers. My triple holds my Bb, Flugel, two spyder stands, mute holder, two pixies, straight, cup, (all Huber Music) and my TrumCor Mutes Harmon. Oh. And of course my Patrick Mouthpieces. For when you don’t need a hard case, there is nothing better.

A couple of Committees headed out for trials! For this particular customer, I recorded a set of arpeggios, chromatic scales, and half diminished scales so we could find the Committee’s that have specific intonation characteristics the player is looking for. The ones that matched were sent out for trial!
