    We all see Wynton with his awesome looking trumpets. They all have some unique characteristic they makes them stand out - just like Dizzy Gilespie's trumpet. Can anyone give me any ideas on how to make a plane old Bb stand out against all those other trumpets?

    Thanks!

    Learn to play it better than the guys around you... then it'll stand out.

    Or, you could just dip it in gold paint.

    take it to the local mechanics shop and have them give it a round with a sandblaster. Definetly a cool look.
    Oh and practice. Who cares what it looks like?

    Fall down in marching band and wrap the bell up... I made my old cornet look kind of like one of Dizzy's last year by doing that... it definatly stood out!

    But if you don't want to ruin your horn you could get it refinished or something... the brushed gold looks kinda neat.

    Get a Sharpie and write your name around the the bell so the audience knows who you are.
