    Now, 15. Used to have more, but I got rid of the ones that weren't players and had no sentimental value.

    Hm. Three trumpets that I plan to play, three that I want to get rid of, and one cornet.

    I can't imagine getting 30 or 40 or even 10.

    I need to learn to play the (main) one I have, first!

    Wow so many horns!!
    Lets see. I only got 1 cornet 1 trumpet 2 trombones An old baritone. Not sure if they count tho. Now back in the days My great gramps had So many horns. He was a conductor In Poland. Once he passed away someone took those horns and sold them. Man I wish I had those horns. And his tuba...

    RAK,

    Don't you think the statement: "Unlike you guys I let people(who cant afford them) borrow my music instruments." is kind of counter productive?

    You ask people to give you horns for free, then insult us in the same post. From other posts on here I recall members have already been quite generous to you and others. In fact there is an entire thread dedicated to just such help:

    Think about it..

    My gigging horns:
    • Harreslon Bravura Bb
    • Harrelson Bravura C
    • Zeus Piccolo
    • Jupiter Flugel
    • Vintage Conn Cornet
    and a few other in various states of assembly in my shop.

    I don't really see the point of collecting old horns. They don't play well, they rarely appreciate in value and
    how much can you really enjoy a horn sitting in a case?

    HAHA, good thread... Once upon a time I had about 14 (Bass, C, 2 Bb's, Eb/D, 2 piccs, cornet, Eb cornet, bugle, flugel, natural, G, and valve trombone [does that count? >:-)])

    Now just three total (Crappy Bb, crappy C, and crappy flugel)(in my opinion). Had to sell the others for money to move, get married, fix the car, etc. BUT, sooner or later I'll save up enough money to get primo equipment. Preferrably sooner, but I'm not the boss, God is... and the wife is too... HAHAHA

    Goodnight fellow TM'ers.

    The thread is big but only a few are kind enough. And no I am not asking for free horns. If you want to discuss this in private PM me. How many horns you got JDay?
