    Welcome to TM! Lots to learn here if you have an open mind and don't believe everything you read.
    You are right about the SF being underrated, but that is changing now that folks like you are touting them!
    Nothing is more contagious or tenacious than music. Once you are exposed it gets inside you and you can never get rid of it. It is also non-discriminating. It can be Ride of the Valkyries, In a Gadda da Vida, the Jeopardy 15 second thinking tune, your most disliked commercial jingle - it doesn't matter. Once triggered, off you go, like it or not.

    Welcome to TM. MUMS the word on the SF (I don't have one yet ).
    Knowledge is freedom, and ignorance is slavery - Miles Davis

    The difference between a beginner and pro mouthpiece is practice - tobylou8

    Nobody has learned how to play the trumpet. It's endless. - Maynard Ferguson

    Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

    By the inch it's a cinch, by the yard, it's hard!

    Re: New to TrumpetMasters

    Welcome !!! When I bought my first "pro" model trumpet I went into Sam Ash and the kid behind the counter was really proud of this Silver Flair he was selling ... I played 2 notes and gave it back to him ... then I tried out 15 Bach Strads and bought a 43 light ... I didn't even know they had numbers on the bell.
    I won't hold the SF against you :) I mean it was only 2 notes

    Re: New to TrumpetMasters

    Welcome!! Great to see another Silver Flair player! I agree, it is a very under-rated horn. Hope you enjoy your stay at TM as much as I do>
