    I have three Arban's. One of them is from 1896-1897 from my great grandfather. He was asked to join Sousa's band by Sousa himself and was honored on stage by him. It is very special to me to have this one. The cover is brown.

    Mine lost it's cover in 1983...it is bisected, scrawled up from private lessons. It is a treasure to me.

    I did have the red one, but when I sold my trumpet, to buy a saxophone, I also got rid of the Red cover Arbans. 1 week later, I took the sax back and replaced it with a new trumpet. Now I need to buy Arbans again.

    The whole licking reed thing - just didnt work for me. ewww.

    I bought this Dover published one for a low price online somewhere (can't recall the vendor), and it seems to be a facsimile reprint of an old edition:

    http://www.amazon.com/Arbans-Complete-Conservatory-Method-Trumpet/dp/0486479552

    The exercise numberings matches those referred to in Eric Bolvin's Arban guide, and it has text in three languages. I wish it did "lay flat" like the ad promises, but it doesn't.

    I agree with the above. I love my "loved" copy of Arban.
