Can you explain what is a "vintage" horn? Is it a customised horn set up?
I'm also awake and found this vintage french horn on google...
Vintage: denoting something of high quality, esp. something from the past or characteristic of the best period of a person's work : a vintage Sherlock Holmes adventure.
Straight from my "vintage" (Ahem!) American Heritage unabridged Dictionary.
It should be said that the bulk of the definition refers to wine. The quote above was 3rd or 4th in the list.
When somebody calls a trumpet a "vintage trumpet" they are meaning that it is old but valuable and maybe even rare.
It comes from the way people talk about old and delicious wines. The vintage is what year the wine was put into the bottle.
Hope that helps,
...not to be confused with vintage whines as in: "The trumpets are too loud!"
What is it with people turning brass instruments into lamps???
I know we are the light of the world and all...
Turning a brass instrument into a lamp gives a brighter sound.
Okay, "I see" things more clearly now. It explains why my sound is always darker when I practice long tones with the lights off.
