    Ok, I'm playing with our new computer, and I recorded the same phrase of music on 4 different horns. I'm not sick like I was on the cornet comparison I recorded a couple weeks ago, so I have no excuses for my playing on these short clips...:D

    The horns to choose from are (listed here in birth order):
    A. 1929 Conn 22B New York Symphony w/Curry 3C.
    B. 1960 Conn 6B Victor w/Curry 3C.
    C. 1969 Conn 76A Connquest w/Bach 3C (a cornet ringer I threw in)
    D. 1976 Bach 43 ML Strad w/Curry 3C.

    Tell me which one you like the best and try to guess which is which. Come back here to pick each video - the links shown once you are in Photobucket are fouled up in their new beta version.

    In the words of Herman Munster, "Darn, darn, darn, darn."

    Looking forward to somebody smarter than I figuring it out. Thanks, Dale.

    I would tell you how many you got right, but that would help the next "contestant"...:D

    The fourth horn was the brightest... Bach 43 is my guess. The second was the cornet. Fiest was the 22B and the third was the 6B.

    What do I win?

    You picked up the tempo in #3 & #4.

    I liked 4 the best.

    You need to have your swing band get it in the right key. Should be in Bb then you can play along with the record! :roll:

    Yeah, the rhythm section was rushing on takes 3 and 4...:lol:

    I just play what they put in front of me, whatever the key.
