    Stage band charts..........;-)

    I'm so glad we don't play those!

    Anyway, still like the sound of number 4.

    I kinda agree with Solar Bell ...its a toss up between 3 and 4 for sound
    its almost as if the listed horns are played in the same order as horns 1,2,3,4

    Interesting how many like #4. They are not played in the order of the listing, but one of them is in the correct slot if they were in order.

    As I recollect, I liked them all in ascending order. But I got mixed up listening to the clips. Think 3 and 4 stood out.

    Especially 1 sounded "old timey," and 2 also.

    How odd they sounded so similar, yet differences presented themselves.

    I listened again to 4; think I like 3 best.

    Just took in the first couple of bars of each.

    3C on all of 'em, eh? Wonder what a B or no letter cup would sound like ;)

    I like them in the order of 1,3,2,4
    I like one bc to me it has the darkest richest tone
    #3 seems to slot very well.
    #2 sounds "thin" (by comparison) to me but notes also seem to slot well
    #4 was brighter and played well just not my fave sound.

    No clue which to put at which spot so I will just wait till you reveal.

    If I win can I have a pick of the horns.

    Like the player best.:-)
    1 A
    2 D
    3 B
    4 C

    Aww I know I am wrong, just checked everyone else's and see KT has the same list.

    Maybe next guess is:
    1 C
    2 B
    3 D
    4 A

    Your best guess is correct! I crown you the king of trumpets...;-)

    #1 is the Conn 22B, #2 is the Bach 43, #3 is the Conn 6B, and #4 is the Conn 76A cornet, which makes a pretty good trumpet with a shallow mouthpiece.

    Pretty good, Richard. The first one is the oldest horn of the group. After listening to the clips, I think I like #3, the Conn 6B, the best for this style of music. For most playing, they all sound better with a deeper cup. From my experience, my Bach benefits the most from a deeper cup.

    Interesting, since you list a 22B in your signature.

    Thanks, Peter. Your first quess was the correct one. Recording this junk has been a fun diversion, but I'll probably go back to my silent obscurity now.
