Haha thanks guys
DaTrump -- good point there. I'll ask my director what he thinks
The issue, Toby, is that I'm not on lead this semester (playing 2nd), so I haven't really been able to gauge my "lead-iness" (gotta follow the lead guy, of course)
Does your second book not split lead?
Not usually. Sometimes I'll lead a section in the music, very rarely. Usually he's up higher than I am. In some of the charts last year, third split lead
So Kill the lead and have done with it
Get your hands on a good audio recorder (or even video camera) and record your rehearsals from the audience perspective. Also, record yourself together with a trumpet player who's sound you know well. Compare and contrast your sound to the other player. It will help your ears compensate for any deficiencies in the recorder's quality (too much bass, emphasizes high frequencies too much, etc.)
You should be recording yourself on a regular basis.
Third split lead is what I'm used to, here we have second split lead which I know a few other schools do.
Why not give the folks at Edwards a call - they should know their horns as well as anybody. A pretty painless leadpipe switch might get you headed where you want to go. It isn't quite as cheap as developing a "lead attitude" but it is certainly less money than a new horn. Take advantage of having a modular horn - get a second leadpipe that gets you out of the dark and helps clear away some of the smoke...
That is a VERY good idea.....I forget they are modular.
