do other folks play our horns or do they play locally made gear?
Most of the trumpet players I talk to here in Germany want to be able to get a Bach or Schilke unless they prefer to play on a rotary valve trumpet. I know the music stores carry American horns but they tend to be a little expensive.
OK, what 's a rotary valve trumpet?
A rotary trumpet has rotary valves like those of a French Horn
is it curled up to?
does it use the same mouthpiece?
I'll have to google this.
Take a look:
I'm quite glad that i don't have any ambitions to play in an orchestra.
BTW - did Rube Goldberg have a hand in the design?
Jimmy Owens and Claudio Roditi plays rotary valved horns.
The horns sound and play great.
Listen to the Berlin Orchestra and most of the orchestras around the world, they play rotaries and sound GREAT.
The kid from Pat's Steak land
yeah, but they look funny.
I've doodled a little on a couple of rotary horns and know a couple of people that have them and paly them (mostly piccs). From what I have experienced/been told really the only difference besides maybe a slightly darker sound is playing technically clean on a rotary horn. I think that they just require an adjustment period because the rotary vlaves seem to have a slight delay that piston valves don't.
