    Not great recordings [and not very good playing quality], but here are some short clips for two video reviews I am working on - one of my Conn 24A flugel, and the other of my Musica 96T pocket trumpet. The pocket trumpet one might include a section comparing the 96T [Jupiter stencil] to the Chinese-made C-S Prelude PT711 pocket trumpet.

    The pocket trumpet [the flugel will be in the next post]

    Well, it doesn't swing enough, the notes are cut off too short... :D

    Thanks, Solar Bell and co.! The flugel video is still processing, so I'll post that when it [eventually] finishes.

    Thank you KT - perhaps it can be phrased as "trumpet players are on an endless path: the path of self-improvement - and no matter where we are on that path, we still strive to continue along that path"

    and now I realize, that statement can be refuted in multiple ways, but I hold it as my opinion

    YouTube finally got the video processed - here is the most cliched flugel bit ever, but likely the first Internet video recording of it on a Conn 24A:

    Right now, I am working on the reviews as stated earlier; my only setback is a mouthpiece adapter I am buying from a friend, as delivery has been delayed.

    I started the video at 1:23 and I thought it was fine! :thumbsup:

    While trumpet/cornet/flugel clips are the norm of the thread, I think a few bits of other instruments here and there is okay. Maybe I should post something of me playing the piano WAIT :sorry: perhaps I'm speaking too soon, then the last thing posted will be trumpet videos! :lol:

    but the clip was fine, so I personally have no problems with it!

    I totally understand ---- that's why I don't post my rendition of Maria" the Maynard Ferguson version ----- some "other guy" wanted me to post -- because I said I could play a few high notes ---------------------------------------------- I told him, to wait another 6 months to a year, ---- then maybe I will post it ---- but now, it just doesn't suit me ---- ((ok some days I can't get the High Bb reliably, and that High Ab sometimes --- on occasion though --- I think, "hey that was reasonable" ---- someday I will post something --- someday ROFL ROFL ROFL
