    I want to sell my poor little Holton. It never gets played and it will never be played...... I think its time I let it go.
    There are some folks interested and I am wondering what short jazz tune would be good to do a demo video on.

    Thanks!

    Wouldn't that leave the head of the Holton Club without a Holton?

    Of course, you could always buy that rather rare ST-105 on EBay at the moment. I haven't played it under that model #, but the original 100 units were ME-2000s, and my 2000 plays quite well (lightweight body of the then discontinued LT-101 with a standard weight ST-101 bell, the 101s being Elkhart Bach 37 clones).

    True...... maybe I should just keep it until I secure my position with a Holton trumpet. I had a chance to win a Stratodyne cornet but I was on school camp.

    Something to demonstrate the capabilities of the horn - Bunny's version of "I Can't Get Started", Louis's "Weather Bird Rag", or Rafael's rendition of "Hora Staccato". If those aren't demonstrative enough, Timofei recorded quite a few pieces that should do the job.

    How about a whole tone scale starting on C[SUP]#[/SUP] below the staff (concert B)?
