    Just a bit curious, what do you think about the new Martin Committee trumpets made by LeBlanc? I have one and like the sound and feel of it though I found i a bit hard to intonate well sometimes. Any other thoughts?

    I picked up one, used, played it for a while and then flipped it. I preferred the Yammy 6310Z at the time. That also got flipped for a Lawler C7. If you want a Committee style horn, I'd recommend you try a Lawler C7 if you can.

    What do you mean by "New Martin Committee"? Like, just out; or--the ones that were Holton-LeBlanc, made for the last 10-years or so?

    Isn't there new ownership?

    I played the LaBlanc T465 for a few years. Big, dark sound. Very open blow. Awesome valves and slide action. However, you can tell, just by holding the horn, it was not built with the same care and attention to detail which the vintage horns received. I have since had a Lawler C7 built for me, and just love it!
