    FYI it is Adams. I played both of course. Both are wonderful. I am biased as I am a huge fan of everything Adams.

    Haha thanks. Not sure why I posted "Adam's". When will the Adams be available? Also can you describe the differences?

    I saw posts that the Handcraft was tailored after some of Miles Davis's personal horns, but noticed the wrap of the Handcraft looked different than pictures i've seen of Miles's horn online. The Adams looks identical to all the photos of Miles's horn. Can't wait to try both.

    http://www.trumpetmaster.com/vb/f139...tin-70935.html (Sure seems to be an uptick in builders copying the Martin Committee.)

    I would suggest listening to trent play the adams and then go to the Schilke facebook page where you can hear examples of the Hancraft

    Re: Adam's Martin Committee(A9) -VS- the Schilke Handcraft

    I played both at NAMM, as well as Josh Landresses's version and one of his actual Committees. The Schilke didn't feel like the real thing to me at all - slots were much wider and it was difficult to play. I've never had any problems with the Schilke large bores - love the X3, but this one made me tired (and tired of it!) very quickly. The Adams played very nicely - easy to play, easy to slot, and I didn't get tired. Josh's version played the most like the real thing, I thought, but at that price point it ought to - they go for $4800. That all being said, which would I want? None of them - Committees don't suit me. I don't sound smoky on them, I peel paint and all while feeling uncomfortable! The Committee I played that day was one of Wallace Roney's, and I even got to play it with one of Miles' mouthpieces, as well as my own. Didn't suit me one bit.

    Re: Adam's Martin Committee(A9) -VS- the Schilke Handcraft

    Actually the Martin #3 is a wide slotting instrument. So that Schilke must of had really wide slotting if you compared it to the Martin. That must have been really cool to play Miles horn with Miles mouthpiece whether you were into the sound or not. It takes some getting used to the Committee because of the loose slotting but in my opinion (And many others)that is what makes the horn so expressive.

    While the slotting was wide on the Committee, it wasn't nearly as difficult for me to play as the Schilke was. I found all three of the Schilkes of that model to be extremely uncomfortable, and like I said, I've never had a problem with the Schilke large bores.
