Trust me, it ain't the trumpet, it's the man.
"...you have the perfect C Major chord, with blazing trumpets and inaudible strings." - Daniel Barenboim.
Wow...great idea. There was a huge difference in my mind. The XLT was really bright...the LT and P1 seemed closer...the BIG difference in my mind was the jump from the 5 1/8 to 5 5/8 bell. I noted a big difference between the P1 and p3. I think I like the P3 the best (huge big sound)...but the P1 certainly has appeal too. Dave Brown
I prefer the ones where manny plays...
very nice, sir.
For the differences in weight, etc. you would expect bigger differences in sound. Maybe they are bigger when we're standing in front of the horn and not listening to a (lowbit) recording.
But as Clarino and others already said, they all sound like Manny. You wouldn't expect any different off course if he's following Arnold Jacob's advise to play the sound in your head...
If you have problems watching the video just do this, get this file and then double click (open it with realplayer): http://www.monette.net/newsite/recor...ok 5 horns.ram

as we say in Boston (for our often spaced out $200 million left fielder):
"It's just Manny being Manny"!
Yeah, and sounding SMOKING as ever!
I like the last horn soooo much better. Of course, it all sounds like Manny, but there is a depth to the sound he gets on the AJNA that I don't hear on the other horns.
Horn: Flip Oakes Wild Thing American Long Cornet
Mouthpiece: Monette B1-1
I must have listened to that clip about 10 times since first seeing it last night.
I ranked them, but have been wondering something. I know this may come across as blasphemy, but would Manny play each horn exactly the same every time? What I am saying is that if we heard Manny play the LT 5 times in a row, would they all sound the exact same? Again, no offense intended, just a thought.
From what I heard, here's the ranking:
1st place - LT
2nd place -Prana 3
3rd place - Prana 1
4th place - Prana Ajna
5th place - XLT
I am truly interested to hear what Manny thinks. How about it Manny, which one did you prefer playing and think sounded best?
I like the LT and P3 best.
Men govern nothing with more difficulty than their tongues, and can moderate their desires more than their words. - Baruch Spinoza
I thought of the exact same question. I would also have loved him playing on horns that were not made by Monette to hear the difference.
