Hey, guys. The OP made 8 posts nearly 5 1/2 years ago and none since. I doubt that he is paying any attention to this. He may not even be playing the trumpet anymore. But, we can still talk among ourselves, I guess.

Okay I know this is an antedeluvian thread but could I add. It may be worth asking someone else even a non trumpeter about how you sound. Your perception can be vastly different from that of a listener. I am working on the Haydn on a cheap Eb I think the top (written) Bb sounds heavy and a little pushed everyone else I have played it for, no not just friendly audiences, tell me it sounds fine
