    Mostly I own and play Holtons, loyal? I don't know. I like the way my Blessing plays and feels and lots of other brands I'm interested in

    I've owned a Blessing (beginner horn), Olds Recording, Selmer K-Modified, Burbank Benge 5X (a great horn), Bach 37, 75/43 large bore, and MLV with a 43L bell, 4 Kanstuls, two Yamahas, a 6335 and 6335H, and a Lawler. The one cornet was an awful Olds Special. I didn't pay much for it and sold it to a friend who teaches music in a Chicago school and had a student that needed something to play on.
    I have an old (1968) Getzen Capri C I've had since it was new, a rather crappy Getzen D/Eb 300, and what I play now, a Schilke B1, Bach 239/25A C, and a Yamaha 6810 Piccolo.
    There is no reason for me to have anything other than the 3 I routinely use and I am not particularly brand loyal, although if I came into a large sum of money, there would be some serious Schilke products in the future and maybe some others.

    I don't keep to a specific manufacturer.
    ...more like whatever I get my hands on that plays well.
    I do favor some though, hence my name.

    Gives a whole other meaning to playing in the red.

    My inventory at present is:

    Bb Trumpets - Selmer K-Modified, Bach Stradivarius Model 37, Getzen Eterna Classic, Getzen Eterna Proteus.

    C Trumpet - Bach Stradivarius Model 229

    Bb Flugelhorns - Getzen Eterna and ACB Doubler.


    I play them all, love them all, and wouldn't part with any one of them. Having said that, I must admit that my favorite is the Eterna Classic! :-)
