    for all you regular players out there, i was wondering, do many of you use more than one trumpet to play gigs? i know people may own a fair few but only use one. For orchestra and bigband stuff i always use my Strad but, my strad doesn't have the sound i want for smaller jazz stuff. i use my flugel instead but, they dont tend to have the range so can anyone help in telling me what they do about this problem?

    For a quintet gig in Japan I used my rotary. Huge palate of colors and easy to carry.

    Why not give your Sovereign 921 a shot at the jazz band?

    A different mouthpiece will make your Strad sound like a different trumpet. My Stork has a V cup, and sounds crisper. The Wick has a deep U cup, and sounds prettier on Latin stuff. For the record, I usually take 2 trumpets, a flugel horn, a peck horn, half a dozen blues harps, and a set of claves. If I could find a mouthpiece for the kitchen sink, I'd probably take that too.
