    Hey Calicchio experts I need your expertise. A friend of mine and former trumpet teacher bought a Calicchio Trumpet (possibly through Jerry Callet) in the early 70's that had, what I believe to be, a bronze bell. Does anyone else remember any horns during this era with similar bells.
    All I can remember about the horn was the edge it had. You could slice through stone with it. It was a great lead horn.

    Unfortunately, he sold it along with a 5X Burbank benge to another friend and student (Dick Pike) who has disappeared off the map. Does anyone have any other information about any different bells Calicchio may have tried?

    Thanks!

    Mike
