    Name that Trumpet/Cornet by coolerdave on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

    okay here's the deal .. I have recorded a passage using either a Bach 37, a Getzen 300, a Bach CR300 (cornet), or a Yamaha 2320
    I used a GR66MX for the trumpets and a Bach 3C for the cornet ... I was going to use my Bach 2 3/4C for the trumpets but I am having one of those says when your chops are a little tight.. so there are some snorks in there and the interpretation could be better but I said I would post this today... so here it is.
    I will post the order in my user profile.
    let me know how you did

    Third one was the cornet, definitely. 1st I'm gonna say was the Yammie, then the Getzen, then the cornet, then the Bach. I preferred the interpretation of the second one much better than all the others. The fourth was nice as well, just too big of a crescendo for my liking. Overall, GREAT job Dave! It takes a lot of guts to post recordings here, flubs and all.

    My order of preference, sound wise:

    3rd, 4th, 1st, 2nd

    Bet you have stumped me on this one. Like Captain Andy I think the Yammie was first -seemed a little more open sounding and bright (though depending on the mic it might be the Strad). TheneZen (which I don't know what they sound like but am using the process of elimination to guess it), third was the cornet, and 4th was the strad. Of course, if I am correct that means I am highly gifted, if I am wrong then it was poor mic placement. :)

    4th time was the Strad. 1st time was second best horn. We're talking a pro horn versus 3 student horns. Flip a coin for the rest.

    yeah, the mic placement, type of mic, and just not being in the room really make it a little rough.. oh yeah not to mention not having a pro on the mp .. there's 2 mikes being used.. an SM57 about 12" from the bell (has the reverb on it) .. and a Roland about 3' away which is recorded dry

    I'm guessing Yamaha, Bach cornet, Getzen, and Bach 37.

    I give up. The fourth one sounded the "brassiest" to me. The third one sounded the stuffiest (is that even a word?).

    1st one Bach 37
    2nd one Getzen
    3rd one Cornet
    4th one 2320

    That was a painfully slow tempo!

    2nd Getzen
    3rd Cornet
    4th Bach 37

    It would be good to have the trumpets together, and cornet at either end for a better comparison...Hey you may have done that too....
    Good Post, Good fun.
