We shall see my friend, we shall see. Mwahh... ha... ha... ha...
Yamaha, Bach, and Schilke...what Rowuk said, right tool for the job!
Why did this pop into my mind?
Bach, Conn, Reynolds, Olds, a Few TSO's that don't do too badly. Stuck on one brand..........nah
That's a STRUMPET
When I couldn't afford them I was absolutely sure I'd end up playing a Bach or a Yamaha trumpet when I finally earned enough to buy one. Or a Besson cornet (Sovereign). So for the first 20 years I was possibly something like a "Bach or Yamaha loyalist", I just didn't have one. And then I did own (still do) a Bach and loved it - so still a loyalist at that stage.
Then I found my Olds Recording and Shires Severinsen Destino III and suddenly the Strad wasn't being played so often (hardly at all). But I didn't switch to being a Shires or Olds loyalist -- the one other Olds trumpet I tried didn't suit me, and the other Shires horns I tried before I was presented with the Destino III to try didn't particularly grab me either.
I still try out horns from time to time, and am still impressed with the Bachs (Yamahas slightly less so), but treat each horn on its merits - so I suppose the horn now has to be loyal to me.
Well, the only brands i've had/have multiples of are Conn and Andalucía.
1 Bach Strad'
1 Tromba (one too many, lol)
The Harrelson Summit C I received last week really has me re-thinking the non-loyalist strategy, though.
Good God, the sound!
I like both kinds of trumpets: Schilke "B" AND "S" series............
I'm loyal to all my trumpets.
