    Back in Trumpet Herald I would occasionally read about how to convert an Ambassador Bb trumpet to a C trumpet by using a hacksaw and a torch and some solder.

    Does anybody have similar instructions on how I can covert my 1947 Martin Committee from Bb to C?

    Yes! I know a man from Malta, used to work on thin vineyard farm equipment, can do anything with a torch that a common man could bring to mind. Of course now, in this era, this time of man many are disappointed with the mettle that is current man...But perhaps this tale is best told after the fact, as history......

    To make a satisfactory conversion, don't you need a couple peices of Monette tubing also??

    I salvaged some copper pipe from a leaking 20-year-old 40-gallon water heater.
    Which is the same thing Monette uses for that "instant patina".
    So I'm ready to go for the conversion.

    Which part of the 1947 Martin Committee do I cut first?
    And does it matter which type of hacksaw blade I use?
    I'm afraid that without explicit instructions to follow I might end up with a D trumpet instead of a C trumpet.

    I thought Che Guevera played Klezmer clarinet.
    Does this site have a Klezmer clarinet forum?
