    I used to own 2. I sold them both. Will probably get more in the future. By the way barliman, my friend teaches at a major university here in the US. He sold all his old rotaries and bought a set of Vortrubas. All except the piccolo, he still loves his Scherzer and I cannot blame him.

    I don't have a rotary, but I aspire to get one. Possible because my first brass instrument was French Horn, so I'm used to them :-).

    Has he tried the picc? IMHO, it beats the Scherzer.

    I usually put in a quarter of an hour on my Bb B & S 3005 most practice sessions. I find that the resistance characteristics particularly with the Breslmair G2 piece (narrow deep V like a French horn) ask more questions of my embouchure and air support than my standard set up. I was going to concoct a sentence involving the words 'focus' and 'centred' but it didn't pass the BS detector test, so I'll content myself with saying that range consolidation and articulation seem to have come on a treat in the last month or so, and I don't believe that it's a coincidence. I get the sense that this set up 'obliges' me to play properly (whatever that means).

    Glad it's got wide slots because operating that thumb push-rod for third slide is a b****r to get used to.

    I have Dillon rotary piccolo. It plays fairly well, good pitch, great sound. I think it's a Scherzer copy.
    I used to own an Alexander D. Got stuffy above the staff.

    Alexander from when?
    The golden age of Alexanders were around early 1900's.
