    Just a little clarification,

    In 2000, the Blue Devils and Cadets were the first corps to use Bb trumpets, Mellophones in F and Low brass in whatever they play in. (C or BBb?) By the next year The Cavaliers, Santa Clara Vanguard and many other top corps were using Bb horns. By now, almost, if not all, top twelve corps are using Bb horns.

    Also, in my opinion, there may be those who can play as high as Maynard in DCI, but there are none who play with such power and sheer energy. Maynard will always be the Boss!

    P.S.-King, not only were there two-valved bugles in G, but they eventually went to THREE-valved G bugles. I played on them with The Cavaliers in 2000. The last true soprano line to win DCI!

    Is 50 supposed to be an upper limit or something? grrrr...


    Just messin' with ya, Bear! You raise a good point. The numbers just caught my eye for, well, um, 'numeric' reasons. :-)

    Peace, man!

    Hi OLD MAN... errr Nick. No sir, the 50 isn't the upper limit, it's just the guys age that I know... actually 52 I believe. In any case, nice to see you around.

    Back to the original post,
    that's a pretty cool double c. I love that register when it's nice and fat, not a squeak... my goal someday... :shock:

    "Someday" Bravo?! That my friend is why it is hard for you! Heard the saying that it's 90% mental and 10% physical? (Here comes St. Nick with the math and physics... hehe) Maybe those numbers are off, but I believe that a lot of people can't play a DHC with a nice, phat sound because they THINK they can't. That was my big problem, I had the chops and air for it... it was my brain that got in the way. You CAN and you WILL play a DHC.

    97% of trumpet playing is from low F# to High C, and the other 3% offers no job security.
