    I love Oldies

    I had a blast pampering my 1968 Getzen Etherna Doc Severinsen trumpet. As you can see from the posted photo this 48 year old baby is hot and sexy. I gave her a deep cleaning and a bath with a mix of salt, baking soda placed over aluminum foil and hot water. This chemical reaction took away the tarnish from the silver plating leaving the trumpet shinny and spotless. After finishing the Getzen, my 42 year old Selmer Paris Radial was screaming at me for equal treatment. What can I say...? I have a preference for oldies who can still roar and age to perfection.

    These are the shortcuts for trumpet playing:
    hardwork, dedication and passion
    Selmer Paris Radial 1974
    Getzen Doc Severinsen 1971
    Yamaha Flugelhorn YFH 2310S

    I love my old Selmer Radial, it is such a classic, but sadly, it barely plays now because the valves are so leaky. Someday, I plan on restoring it.
