Cushion rims... good for lead tiring lead work? .... discuss.
Back when was in school, I used a Bach 7EW (E was the depth and W stood for wide) to play piccolo trumpet and occasionally in jazz band. Is that was is regarded as a Cushion Rim? It had a wider rim supposedly for support because more of flesh above and below the lip could sit on it and be "suported". I guess the polar opposite of that would be a french horn style rim.
Didn't the late Dokshitzer play a 7EW, at least at one point in his career?
Um...I know I'm a little slow on the uptake, and I realize that he wouldn't be a spring chicken at this point, (84) but I wasn't aware that Timofei Dokshitzer had passed.
Did I miss something? I can't find anything on the net regarding his passing anyway.
Oh man! Yesterday!? How did I miss that?
He will be sorely missed.
Sorry I hijacked the thread. I think that news just ruined my day, even if I did get it a day late.
I have read in many sources that Mr. Dokshitzer used a 7E. Don't know about the "W". Whatever he used, his sound and musicianship was simply marvelous.
