    Here are 3 low-fi clips of my Eclipse in action.

    I am going into the studio the first week of January to record HIGH-fi clips...

    Let me know what you think!

    Happy holidays to you all!

    Sounds good, Trent! That LR in scratch lacquer is in its own unique little world - the only thing that kept me from buying the exact same model was that I had my heart set on a horn in scratch gold. I know how happy you must be with it 8)
    Its nice to hear someone on an Eclipse that can really play!

    Far be it from me to even try and critique a guy who is a LOT better than I am. Sounds like you and the trumpet match up pretty well.

    Trent is a very fine player, with a great personality, tremendous musical talent. The Large Red, in scratched lacquer, is a perfect match for him and his playing style.

    When I received my first Eclipse trumpets, Trent was one of the first to play them. The Medium and the Medium Classic just weren't a good match for him. However, when I received the first Large Red, I invited him to play it. The rest, as they say, is history. Trent is a very fine Eclipse Artist.

    The Eclipse line is truly in a class by itself. It offers the player many excellent choices, in terms of the tonal and playing characteristics of the different bell options. Noel Langley has described the various bell options, very well, on the Eclipse website. I believe that there is an Eclipse model that would work for everyone.

    My personal favorite is the Equinox... followed very closely by the Medium. What will yours be?

    Best always,

    Yee HAW!
    I don't know how many of you have listened to the songs played on this last site posted by Trent: but if there's one word it's "WOW"! You want to hear the versatility of Trent and his Eclipse? Those last two songs in particular sure knocked me for a loop... this is what I call "JAZZ".

    Just follow the link and click the "Feb 27/04" date, sit back and listen for 2 hours! Whew.

    Thanks for the "heads up" on this one, Trent.
