  5. Just thought I would introduce myself I am Jeremy. I was a member of trumpetmaster and Trumper Herald. I started playing in 2nd or 3rd grade and played up till I joined the military in the 90s. I played of and in while I was in the military till life changed. After the army I have purchased horns to use as music therapy for my injuries and PTSD, but as life went on I had to sell my horns. Hopefully I will start back again soon, but it will be a while till I can get my Bach 72 back.
  6. Last week
  7. When I first got this trumpet, I thought it was mouthpiece sensitive. After playing with my three trumpet mouthpieces, found it was not. Yes I am enjoying this trumpet.
  8. Yes I did contact the previous owner. There is a lyre holder on this trumpet.
  9. Was wondering if there is a lyre holder on the bottom of the 3rd slide on the Getzen Eterna cornet. Don't have a lyre or push rod to figure out what this is. Yes I probably should contact the seller.
  10. Earlier
  11. I agree with the previous poster. Although I have owed many cornets/trumpets, have never owed an Indian made instruments. Also would suggest you not buy any inexpensive Chinese or unknown origin trumpets or cornets. All the Chinese student models and mouthpieces looked good but soon develop issues. I suspect your cornet will break down soon too. Have owed Holton, Buescher, Getzen, King cornets, Conn cornets , Yamaha cornets, Bach cornets. The lacquer wasn't always pretty but the valves were great and they played well. When you buy an instruments always think about resale value.
  12. Has anyone played a Curry Precision Reno, NV 1C Trumpet Mouthpiece? Won a bid on ebay for this mouthpiece. Wanted to have two trumpet mouthpieces.
  13. A used cornet can be found that will play better than any new one from India, as the Indian ones have the reputation of being not from the bottom of the barrel, but rather the dirt and scum under the barrel, figuratively speaking. The one that you purchased has the potential to unfairly discourage you from pursuing your interest in playing. You'd be better served by trying something like an Olds Ambassador, a Selmer Bundy, a King 6XX series, or a Conn Director, among others, like student models from Buescher and Holton. These are all time-proven durable and reliable starter horns in a similar price range that enable students to learn the basics and then move on to more sophisticated instruments. In addition, any of these horns can be resold at a price similar to what you paid, whereas some might consider reselling an Indian brass instrument to be as unethical as selling a new one.

  15. Received the Getzen 800 cornet yesterday. Excellent shape, sounds great. So far, both mouthpieces work well .Like the modification on the 3rd slide, flipped the slide and placed a fixed slide on the top.
  16. A short shank mouthpiece like a Denis Wick cornet mouthpiece might be a good fit.
  17. Selling the Denis Wick 2 silver mouthpiece. Doesn't match the sound I am striving for. Looking at a 1 C mouthpiece. Has anyone else who played a Getzen 700 find it to be mouthpiece sensitive?
  18. hello.........an older fellow i am, and went and purchased a cheap cornet from india to try, and see if i wanted to get serious and buy a decent one.......no idea what the mouthpiece that came with it is....purchased a blessing 5c mouthpiece but had to return it cause it was too small.....the mouthpiece receiver is 11mm in dia. id..and the end of the shank on the blessing was only 8mm od....... any idea if mouthpieces are available for this cornet?.....just noticed this form is not that active so i'm not holding my breath 😀...cheers, vic
  19. You'll love it! They sound great and are quite improved over the Capri model. Played one in concert band in high school and had a wonderful sound!
  20. Won a bid on eBay for a Getzen 800 Eternal cornet. Does have a 1st slide thumb saddle and 3rd slide fixed ring. Starting to get used to the Amado water keys. Has anyone played the Getzen 800 cornet? Is it a vast improvement over the Capri cornet?

  23. The Martin family is bringing back the "Martin Committee" model trumpet.
  24. I've been surprised the past few weeks, watching counterfeit Bach Mt. Vernon mouthpieces being sold on eBay. New packaging, copied the sealed bag, and did a pretty good job copying the shape & lettering of the mouthpiece. At least they put in their description in the listing, made in China. I know Conn-Selmer has been alerted, but wonder how long eBay will leave them up. I've seen the counterfeit Bach Strad. trumpets - but that obvious errors on them (serial number, engraving, trim differences) - but the mouthpieces are pretty good looking copies & packaging... This could (will?) damage the re-sale market for Bach Mt. Vernon mouthpieces... Have others seen them? or actually purchased one?
  25. Curious what you ended up doing? Did you find another repair shop to get it fixed...

    Callet Jazz NY

    I'd spend the money and get it repaired & fixed. Sounds like a good trumpet for various types of music... I've only played one once, and it really had a good sound across the staff...
  27. I also really liked the Olds Mendez trigger mechanism. Very efficient and easy to use. Wonder why other mfgs. never really copied/applied it...
