    When I was in the Army band, we had a baritone horn player who played the f parts. It forced us trumpet players to think BIG.
    I have a 4 valved Getzen flugel and it works fine in the low register, but that is not what being a trumpet player is about...........

    Thanks guys for the input, it sounds like putting a trumpet on the F.H. part
    just won't cut it. I'm glad I didn't ask him to try it out. Dave

    Years ago I played in a quintet with an undependable horn player. I got so sick of playing horn parts on C trumpet I bought a Holton alto trumpet in low F on closeout from Giardinelli. Of course, immediately after the alto arrived the group disbanded, and since the horn was a closeout item I couldn't return it.
