You might want to check out the great cornetist, Ruby Braff. Lots of low register playing and he does not seem to take it beyond a high C. Wonderfully lyrical playing, like Louis Armstrong meets Dizzy Gillespie. Brian

Jimc, how is that horn played? It looks like the mouthpiece is on the inside oc the tubing. ;)
The full story is in the link I gave. The short answer is that, when received and as pictured above, the horn had to be played cocked at an angle so that your chin didn't hit the bow. It was obviously missing a 'bit', like many old horns have. With a Euro taper adapter and a stock extender this problem went away. Someday I'll find a way to play it in public.
He's not using water - just the acoustics (what in Star Trek they call a sonic shower).
