    B4 vs B4L

    Looking at a Schilke B4 and considering the B4L tuneable bell model... What have others experiences been between the std. model vs. tuning bell model? Do you notice a difference in the sound & responsiveness?
  2. Thanks, will be buying a Tom Crown to match others in our community band section... Thanks!
  3. Really like the vintage look on these. Will be heading to my local dealer to see if they have any on order. Really nice Horn!
  4. Dillon Music was incorporated in 1992 and has quickly become one of the foremost leaders in the music industry, but the history of the company dates back a great deal further than 1992, and includes much history in the United States. The "trumpet" room is awesome, along with their repair & restoration services.
  5. Been playing on the Humes/Berg stonelined mutes that I've been playing since high school. The mutes are starting to loose their corks (dried out), and before I decide to replace the corks, should I just consider getting a new straight/cup mute? Do others try to match the rest of the trumpet section mutes (in a local community band) or do their own thing? Curious what others do?
  6. I'm getting my kids trumpets tuned up for the fall semester and am wondering what the going rate is for a basic tune up, cleaning and very minor dent/ding removal? My local music stores are charging a wide range of prices from $55 to more than $150 for a professional type trumpet (Bach Strad.) What are others paying?
  7. I'm curious, as I have played a few mouthpieces over the years, how often or how much time you should give yourself to get used to a new mouthpiece before switching? When I try a new mouthpiece it sounds wonderful for the first few days, then I always seem to find the next few weeks to be difficult when its no longer creating the sound (fullness, tone, intonation) that I'm looking for... How long do others take when when changing to a new mouthpiece?
  8. I'm from the greater Atlanta area, and have been playing trumpet for more than 35 years now. My husband is a trumpet geek and I enjoy playing the trumpet also. In fact all three of our kids also play trumpet - 2 in college bands and 1 just starting college. I've been playing a Bach Stradivarius all this time and while I'm not constantly changing my equipment, I am interesting in learning more about others experiences with their trumpets and what other equipment choices they are making. Looking forward to contributing here on the forum! - Carla
  9. I like that you have created instrument specific forums, such as Bach, Yamaha and Schilke. What made you select those three, and how will you add future brand forums? While I've been playing a Bach for the past 30 years, I was curious how future forums will be added... - Carla
