    scipioap - who did the restoration on your horn and who put the ring on the first valve, if it wasn't there to begin with? Thanks.

    That's a fair amount of horns, but we all have played several to many horns without still having one or two that have taken precedence over the others. Hasn't Miles played mainly Committees?

    He was also shown playing an early mid 30s Martin Handcraft Imperial trumpet in either Miles Davis Volume. 1 or 2 album.


    And a different French Besson Brevette from the above shown here,

    Miles started playing Committees early in his career and didn't switch back.

    Yeah, I'm guessing he was trying a bunch of horns in the 40s, and he was mostly using the Committee from the late 40s up to the 50s and 60s but he did play different horns on occasion, not sure why, he had to borrow Clifford Brown's Blessing in the early 50s for a few recordings and he was seen with a F. Besson Brevete on one Newport date in the 50s.
