"If it was just up to me, I'd have nothing but trumpet players on my show." - Jackie Gleason
Knowledge is freedom, and ignorance is slavery - Miles Davis
The difference between a beginner and pro mouthpiece is practice - tobylou8
Nobody has learned how to play the trumpet. It's endless. - Maynard Ferguson
Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.
By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard, it's hard!
Is it me not being observant enough but don't see the 123 combination of valves and yet the air goes through three slides at one point? This said I like the GIF.
Maybe I'm being a stickler here...and that's a really cool animation, but it implies that the air path makes a U-turn INSIDE the valve body.
I'm pretty sure my valves don't do that.
EDIT - now that I think about it...it is the same thing...just oriented differently!!
This guy thinks so, too...
But I think this is more accurate:
-2008 & 2012 Phaeton 2030 Bb Antiqued Brass Trumpet
-2011 HTF-2500 Phaeton Flugelhorn
-1983 Bach Strad 43 * Bell Silver Trumpet
-1970's Bach Strad C Silver Trumpet (anyone interested?)
-1984 Getzen Eterna Piccolo Bb/A (silver)
-Morrison Digital Trumpet (MDT) (acrylic )
The sound does not "travel" through the horn like a spitwad. The standing wave is in the whole horn at the same time and "leaks" out of the bell. We can get a similar effect by gluing a headphone speaker to a mouthpiece an using it to create the sound.
The only thing moving from front to back of the trumpet is our "exhale" which should be balanced so that we can play long enough phrases but not suffocate.
A trumpet sound is NOT an amplified buzz!
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
