TM membership is as good as a certificate... but I would use wood...
Because he spent five grand on a trumpet project that he wasn't able to make work and is selling it for five hundred as a down payment on his divorce lawyer. I guess I'd be cheesecloth too.
You are right, as per usual.
Wood has a much more delightful thunk when skull-cracking than does aluminum's thin ringing sound. Not that I'd know...
I'm thinkin' the bell tail is too long. You'd want it to be quite a bit sharp to start.
"danceswithweenies" ??? !!!. I know how Costner got his handle, but I'm havin' trouble tryin' picture what you might have been doing at the time.
I think that there are mass problems, bracing issues and a general bad mix of parts. If someone here ends up buying it, I'll post what I think. No need to help that goon if he is watching.
Exactly why I keep some vintage Sluggers in my autos...
I'm no pro, but you're onto something here. A *good* trumpet doesn't use "bin parts" like an armorer would piece together a 1911 from several that may have grenaded, but still have had salvageable parts. Yeah, it may shoot .45 ACP "minute of man" at 10-15 yards, but it's not going to be a tack driver like a gun out of a custom shop.
This horn may play some sort of, maybe not well-tempered, scale and make trumpet-y sounds, but will it find a home in a symphony player's arsenal? Probably not. I really would like just the bells and I could convert my AMI Pasión from just a replaceable bell to a tuning bell with some bracing mods.
We have four...count 'em FOUR weenies...a sassy parrot...and a cat. Too bad the cat is the one outside and the noisy and messy ones the ones inside, but is the way it is.
I, my sense of humor actually, thought it a hoot to make one wonder whether my moniker was an innocent play on the movie or a reference to spurious sexual proclivities. I HAVE no spurious sexual proclivities, but concern was not necessary as the EBAY world was essentially removed from overt identity.
I DID get several messages from folks who thought it was the funniest eBay account name they had ever seen and about choked laughing.
THAT is the reward I sought.
And why exactly are you TRYING to picture the possibilities. That's dangerous. Once such a picture flashes onto that big movie screen on the inside of your skull, it becomes burnt into it...and you'll play the Dickens trying to delete that image.
Like trying to erase a misspelled word on a Boy Scout woodburning project....but worse.
Lol, my account was what AMC dubbed over Molly Ringwald's "pos" comment - plastickreep
Did you mean "minute of angle" - MOA?
