Started 1949 on a Cuesnon
Main horn today Getzen Severinsen
Played all my life
Thought for sure that I'd posted to this thread back in 2011, but I guess not. I was 10 in 1962 and started on a school rental of some sort. The first horn of my own was a bright shiny new Holton Galaxy cornet.
I started at 10 in 5th grade also (1965). M&D bought me a Holton Galaxy cornet that I used through High School, then a King Silver Flair 1055 for graduation that is my primary horn to this day. Got the Galaxy restored in the '80s or early 90's and still have it, but don't play it much.
46 -- it is now one year since my 1st trumpet lesson.
(first *brass* was two years on baritone horn when I was 16-17 to escape a huge flute section!)
3 cheers to the guy who started at age 60!!!
I started in 6th grade on a olds trumpet and stopped after my senior year in high school (87). I remember it was heavy and tarnished until I used brass cleaner on it. Played with that instrument until I was a junior in High School. Bought a silver Yamaha YTR 2335??. They called it an intermediate horn. Now at age 44 after listening to my son play since 5th grade, now a junior in HS playing a King Silver Flair, I have decided to start again. I have a Eastman ETR400R at the moment but will pick up a better trumpet in the next year once I prove to the wife I am serious
By this you mean return to the Olds trumpet you started with in 6th grade? Right?
Started playing solos in 4th grade and haven't stopped yet (age 71)
Started on an Olds Ambassador.
If only I still had that Olds but yes I would gladly
So which Olds did YOU use for your start up. My start up horn, like Branson's was the Ambassador. I will be going out with that one as well, as I recently got it back from my little brother that borrowed it after I moved on to the Recording, and he gave it a a real beating so I had it refurbished to breathe a new life back into it. It plays more fabulously then I ever remembered it playing.
