    Re: I'm drowning!

    I have seen loads of them in the UK. Checked their website and it says they are a UK based destributor so I am guessing that they are known elsewhere by another name either locally branded or by the manufacturer name.

    YMMV, but I've got top tier horns and they are all a little different. Some are spigots and others are deserts. If I'm repeating myself, sorry. It's an old thread.

    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.

I'm not playing anything especially high. I'm not playing especially low. I'm not playing anything especially...well...special.

    So, the question:

    What does it say about me as a trumpet player if Niagra Falls is unleashed by my trumpet when I play?

    Seriously, I'm excited to know if that says anything specific about the player. Do some people just 'spit' more than others?

    I'm excited to hear your thoughts.


    Hmmmmm.... Sounds like you have a textbook case of being a trumpet player!
