    Is the Lawler a copy of the Martin Committee?

    Hi, Ash!

    Yes, the Lawler Committee is an adaptation of the Vintage Martin Committee. Roy stayed very close to the original design, but he also used bracing, and technology that has worked well for all of the Lawler trumpet models. The result is an updated "classic" that is more responsive, and has better intonation than you would find on the Vintage Martin.

    Hi, James!

    Pictures of Alan's Lawler Committee trumpet have already been posted in this section. If Alan wants to treat us with more... bring 'em on Alan! :D

    Best always,
    Bruce

    Sorry Bruce, I dont have a digital camera :( besides no photo can do it justice!
    Played it more tonight. Man its smooth!
    I am babysitting a TL6L-1 in gold 8) for someone just now. Playing the 2 back to back is quite interesting. The Committee keeps its "mellowness" above the staff more than the TL6L.
    I was going to buy a TL6r but decided to go for the Committee instead. I wasnt sure I made the right choice after reading about everyones TL6r experiances but now I have 'my baby' I know my choice was the right one! :lol:

    Hi, Alan!

    That's an accurate description of the playing characteristics of the TL6L-1 and the Lawler Committee model, which is very similar to the TL6-1A. The bell qualities of the 6L give the player a little more brightness, because of the larger bell diameter. The slightly smaller 6 bell remains a bit more focused, and retains the mellow qualities that you mention about the Committee.

    As for choosing between the Committee and the TL6R-1A... you can see that any choice would have been a good choice! You certainly didn't go wrong with the Committee... that's a keeper!

    We'll look for further reviews from you, once you receive the rest of your order. Thanks again, Alan!

    Best always,
    Bruce

    Played the Committee in big band tonight. FANTASTIC!! The guy in the jazz seat had his "new" 1960s Conn. What a team!
    As any Lawler it just gets better.
    Incedently, a Lawler is the best slotting and yet flexible instrument I have played. The High B is often a problem on many horns, not the Lawlers tho.
