    That's what I call art! What a beautiful instrument. I bet it plays well too.

    wow, very nice...

    One day man, I tell you, one day I'll make enough to afford the MF Prana... However, I do wonder what the pricetag on that Elysian is... wow.

    I guess Dave does make trumpets for doctors and lawyers...and janitors and junkies and children and old folks...cool! l liked this from the Elysian website:

    [FONT=book antiqua,palatino]The Elysian Trumpet Prayer[/FONT]


    [FONT=book antiqua,palatino]God of all goodness…
    infuse my breath with the spirit of harmony, and love.
    [/FONT]

    [FONT=book antiqua,palatino]Let your voice speak through this instrument
    and bring joy to the living, comfort to the afflicted,
    and rest to the dead.

    Bind up all of your children into your eternal oneness
    which is the music of the universe, and the shining path
    to unity and peace.
    [/FONT]

    Amen!

    I haven't a clue how it plays or sounds, and I'll bet I never will, but it sure looks unbelievably heavy, very uncomfortable to hold or play, and just plain gawdy & ostentatious. The horn for the pimp player with tons of gold hanging around his neck & diamonds on every finger, and maybe even one studded in his front teeth. Definetly not what I'd want for an axe. Bling, bling, bling - ready for a ho-down.

    I think I would commit suicide if I nicked the bell on a music stand or chair.

    Ok, I give in. It is real pretty.

    The amount of effort that went into that horn would have built five houses in New Orleans.

    "Contributions to the Elysian Trumpet Fund are used to provide performances in spiritual environments and support music education for talented young persons. Checks may be made to: "Christ Church Cathedral" with the notation "Elysian Trumpet Fund"

    There, I read it.
