    Re: Trumpet Brand Loyalists/Non-Loyalists

    When I couldn't afford them I was absolutely sure I'd end up playing a Bach or a Yamaha trumpet when I finally earned enough to buy one. Or a Besson cornet (Sovereign). So for the first 20 years I was possibly something like a "Bach or Yamaha loyalist", I just didn't have one. And then I did own (still do) a Bach and loved it - so still a loyalist at that stage.

    Then I found my Olds Recording and Shires Severinsen Destino III and suddenly the Strad wasn't being played so often (hardly at all). But I didn't switch to being a Shires or Olds loyalist -- the one other Olds trumpet I tried didn't suit me, and the other Shires horns I tried before I was presented with the Destino III to try didn't particularly grab me either.

    I still try out horns from time to time, and am still impressed with the Bachs (Yamahas slightly less so), but treat each horn on its merits - so I suppose the horn now has to be loyal to me.

    Re: Trumpet Brand Loyalists/Non-Loyalists

    Well, the only brands i've had/have multiples of are Conn and Andalucía.
    1 Bach Strad'
    1 Yamaha
    1 Buescher
    1 Tromba (one too many, lol)
    1 Harrelson
    2 Conns
    2/3 AMI

    The Harrelson Summit C I received last week really has me re-thinking the non-loyalist strategy, though.

    Re: Trumpet Brand Loyalists/Non-Loyalists

    I like both kinds of trumpets: Schilke "B" AND "S" series............

    Schilke B1 & S42 (Bb), Conn 38A Connstellation (Cornet), Bach Strad 183 (Flugel), French Besson Classic (C)
    Plus a modest collection of vintage trumpets.
