I know that this is kind of a redundant and useless question. I know that there are tons of good and great horns out there. I do have my equipment of preference. I don't whish to cause arguments or get into a "my horn is better than yours" contest. I am simply curios and I enjoy knowing about and test playing all of the different brands that I can get my hands on. Plus it is interesting to see what horns are being used for what types of playing and so forth. Trumpet playing is great fun and part of that is the fact that we have so many different brands of horns and mouthpieces to play on and just to try out and enjoy. So what do you play on, horn and mouthpiece. What style of music do you use it for. And without starting an argument (everyone is different and likes different equipment for different reasons) why do you like your equipment. My horns are listed in a signature so I will not type that out again. I use the lightweight for lead playing because it simply has a huge sound (an old Bach from when Bach was still alive). For jazz and lead I use a Bach 11/2C, for orchestral, wind Band, quintet, small ensemble on both Bb and C I use a Curry 3BC, on piccolo and Eb I use a Curry 3DE. And currently a Bach 3C for cornet although I am think about a Curry cornet mouthpiece. I love my equipment because it works well for me I like the resistance each of my horns has it balances well for me. They also help me to achieve the sound that I want. The huge sound of my lightweight Bb. The more centered sound of my Standard. The richer,slightly darker sound of my picc than most. The brilliant songing sound of my C. the delicate sound of my Eb. And the huge round rich sound of my cornet. Oh yeah and I love my horns most because they are mine and they allow me to make music.
