    She's very good.

    There's a whole lot of other trumpets I'd rather hear her play that song on than a Bach C, however.
    It just sounds blah compared to what it could be on a nice Bb.

    ...And she IS attractive. I haven't played a lot of C trumpets, but to my ear they don't quite have the "testosterone" that Bb horns have. Mine is a small bore horn, but I have a small bore Buescher that has more [email protected] in the sound. The C feels like crystal, and the Bb feels like brass, but maybe that's just me. Either way, when I hear other trumpet players, I prefer Bb.

    When I had Jason Harrleson build my C trumpet I got the darkest sounding bell he had in his arsenol.

    It makes it sound more like a Bb.

    She is so amazing. Master of the trumpet, very impressive, plus she's easy on the eyes.

    No joke. My wife thinks Alison Balsom is soooo pretty, I am not allowed to see her concert when she come to my area. But being the good sport that she is, my wife did purchase Bach Works for Trumpet for my Christmas present.
