    Merde! All those hours cruising the isles of thrift shops down the drain.

    "Rotary" in the title of a thread = BrassBandMajor about 90% of the time.

    I'm afraid I know the source of the OTHER 10%.

    You like to show off your unicorns! ( image.jpg )Everybody is proud of their horns, nothing wrong with that.

    Take both to rehearsal, and leave the decision to your band director...and accept it graciously. In a band, it is about the section and the sound, not the individual. You may sound better on a rotary, but the section may sound worse.

    Good luck, I hope you get to play it.

    Dale's instruments are not mere piles of metal. They are excellent instruments and if you have ever heard Dale play, he really knows his way around a trumpet or cornet.
    Next to a pile of India made junk, the worst horn I ever played was a second rate rotary.

    Unicorns are much more pretty than greasy fingerprinted rotarys, but every one can be proud of their horn. I am proud of my Blessing C that is nothing compared to nice horn some have.

    However, some are a little more proud than others. :lol:

    Thanks for the kind comments, Rich.

    Hey guys, I'm not knocking anyone's choice of horn. I was just making a comical (I thought) observation concerning BBM's obsession with rotary instruments. I'm not ashamed to be a bit proud of my horns, either. I've practiced and gigged over 25 years to be able to buy some nice ones without affecting the family finances. Also used some of it for a nice family vacation every year, and helped pay my daughter's way through college. Mostly by playing a rotary cornet...ha ha
