How about this? I received an email from an Instagram follower that he had purchased a painting from a thrift store after realizing it was not a print but an original, and had my signature on it. Could I tell him any background information about it? he asked.
He sent me a good photo of it, and it even had a frame I had made some 42 years past. By the way, he paid $6.99 for the framed original.B37E7A5B-7754-41EC-A27E-FF4F38B48B77.jpeg
@stumac Phase is not what causes the frequency that we "hear". I find more evidence that the size and taper of the trumpet bell "amplify" frequencies starting in the second octave. An 1300 Hz horn is around 4.8" in diameter at the mouth according to horn theory... This would damp the fundamental which is below cutoff severely.
Could we summarize, then, in layman's terms, that the amount of air required doesn't necessarily depend upon what the bore size is but, rather, upon the collective design of the horn which includes a myriad of factors?
In other words, do some horns take "more air", horn-by-horn, depending on how it's constructed rather than on bore size alone?
Exactly this - horn by horn, depending on how it is constructed, how we hear ourselves, the efficiency of the entire body/mind/mouthpiece/trumpet/playing environment system. Even the term "amount of air" is not correct as our bodies have no measure of this except running out before a phrase is finished. We can believe that the horn is a loose blow indoors, we take it out to an open lake and the same system is like blowing into a brick wall!
Just re-watched "The Station Agent." That was a completely different type of movie, but it was Dinklage's first leading role, I think. It also had some interesting early parts by Bobby Cannavale (Will and Grace), Michelle Williams (Dawson's Creek), and John Slattery (Mad Men).
Geez!! My 1400sqft ranch is worth $350k now - give it a Seattle zip and it would go for around $700k. The most expensive home for sale in my hometown in ME is listed for $100k, and is overpriced in that area. It’s a 6 bed Victorian with an apartment over the carriage house and a guest cottage. We could buy that house and never have to work again, and be bored out of our minds for the rest of our lives. We’ll happily stick with what we’ve got!
I know, where the jobs are not, there the houses are big and cheap!
I just had to dig out my Conn 77A. Sorry no picture. It is a standard configuration for a cornet. The 76A, which replaced the 77A is quite a different design. The tuning slide, I'm guessing, is on the bell tubing? Anybody know of any other Conn cornet with that feature?
There are many many examples of tuning at the bell tail from Pan-American to Puje, including all of the opera-glass tuning Conns (That front slide is for quick change only on those, not tuning). This Martin Imperial is another and even manages to still keep it on the right hand side of the horn rather than the left hand most think of as the back.
Oh my oh my. Gotta start looking for one of those. Yowza!
