    CJDJazzTpt is right about Calicchios, they are a lead player's dream!! I really love my big Tulsa Calicchio 1sZ/3RL -- you really can play over the band with this baby -- even in certain rock-band situations where those electro-crazies keep cranking up the volume!! :wink:

    However, when I get tired, my LA Benge 2X makes up for my fatigue. With a shallow mouthpiece, this medium-bore horn really, really screams. As a matter-of-fact, it can get a bit out of control if you don't watch it!! If I remember Benge's description correctly, it's regarded as "...very brilliant [with a] well centered sound. Ideal for TV and recording as [its] 'edge' reaches out to microphones." Not the kind of setup you'd what want for a classical/symphonic gig!!

    The horns I wish to try (In no particular order):

    Schilke, Eclipse, Lawler, Zeus (Yeah, I still wanna, for some reason!), Calicchio, Wild Thang, Mt. Vernon, Inderbinen, Blackburn, Monet

    Think all these horns can be located and played in a two-week roadtrip? :lol:

    Hmm, I should maybe start locating owners of these particular instruments, or maybe locating dealers and figuring out how to set this up..

    Of course, figuring out how much money will be necessary for the trip will be a must... That, and how to go about visiting all these places and coming back before Christmas.. Or maybe this should be something for Summer break..?

    Just to prove we have too much time on our hands ...

    Or maybe some help for trumpet players looking for dates!
