    As the Title may imply, here we can tell all the others about what Trumpet (or general music) related goodies you got for Christmas!

    I'll start, with my Brand new Stagg Rotary Flugelhorn. Now, I know that Stagg may not have the greatest reputation, but this is my second Stagg (the first was my first trumpet which was actually quite decent). I really like this flugel, it's got a nice sound, and nice valves, but the tuning's not the best.... no trigger either, so I've got quite a bit (or a lot!) of lipping to do, but it's not awful.
    All in all, it's bloody brilliant for ~US$290 (NZ$399, on sale from 799)


    So, over to you guys!


    Hope you've had/are having a Fantastic, safe, happy and Holy Christmas

    Not Christmas yet, but I got Rockband 2 and Beatles Rock Band from my grandma, and I asked for valve oil from my parents :)

    Still another 12 hours...
    I did not ask for anything this year. I usually ask for some overpriced electronic nonsense but times are tough and I didn't want to be the cause of any overspending. I'll let them do it on their own ;)

    Merry Christmas all!

    Ive been up since 5 am, cant get back to sleep and not opened any presents yet but i know a few of them as i ordered them of the net, lol.

    Music wise that i know of there is an MF play along and a Jazz Improv play along and i got an early present, a Louis Armstrong Christmas CD a couple of days ago so i could listen to it and get into the christmas mood, lol.

    Will have to wait and see what other music stuff i get, cant wait! :D

    Santa is bringing me a Naumann 4-hole Baroque Trumpet with the Haas bell. Andy doesn't even know about it yet. I just placed the order with Lee @Check Levins yesterday. It will be a few months before it is built and delivered.
