On here my name is IronClaymor3. I've played the trumpet since 5th grade and have been playing it since then which would be about 6 years. I've played in solo and ensemble for the last three years and am currently participating in a drum and bugle corps. The corps is called "Capital Reigment". We are an open class corps and are expected to go world class next year. I know quite a bit about the trumpet. Not to sound arrogant, but I can tell you the ins and outs of embrochure and so on. I've been taking private lessons for three years and my tone has really improved since then. My lowest not (excluding pedal tones) is an F#, highest double C. I use a 3c mouthpiece and figure that all lead mouthpieces are bad for you. Sorry about all the random posts, I honestly didn't know what the heck I was doing.
