    Chet played a Martin Committee, Guess what type of leadpipe it has, standard or reverse? You really need to know this!

    IMHO, no. You SOUND like the horn is more open, but that is about where it ends

    Express myself? Does that mean I have to write a bio on the horn now? I hope not....

    The Martin Committee is indeed, a reversed leadpipe horn designed by a committee(hence the name) of trumpet greats!

    Here is the info on Committees from Jim Donaldson. Martin Committee
    Schilke claimed the committee was him. I can't really imagine Vincent Bach - whose own company was struggling - nor Benge, who was just beginning to manufacture his own legendary trumpets, would necessarily would want to help design a horn for another company, so perhaps the committee was just Schilke himself.

    Yeah in the beginning Chet baker played a Committee, but then went onto a Constellation, a beusher a Getzen Capri and then ended up playing a loaned Strad respectively, also there was a Flugelhorn in there too. Now, did he just pawn all the horns for drugs or did he conciously move onto a normal lead pipe?
