    The horn doesn't make the player.

    Just because it has MF on it isnt going to make you "screech" like The Boss.(I am sure you realise that) I had a Holton MF st-308 and I could play just as high on that as I can my Phaeton let alone my nieces Olds Ambassador. BBW is exactally right.

    You can't get much better than a Shilke, no matter what level you are at----The MF horn plays much different---may require much more air---than you'll be crying instead of screeching!

    No you shouldn't... refer to the other topical posts about range. Also, in tenth grade you ought to be able to construct a sentence... Get your fundamentals and technique down solid and range will take care of itself with a little help from you down the road. I'm in a bad mood so I apologize but do you think the Tastee Bro stuff is legitimite? You know they sound like that because it's a joke right? I hope that sound isn't your conception of a good high register.

    Bear,

    Refer him to your prior high range discussion...

    I got a little scared there... for a moment I though he was going to say he wanted a Monette MF horn... we've been there before... last week wasn't it? :x
