Finally figured out posting photos! Here is a shot of my Schlub flugelhorn.

RE: Help! I need to hit that high note!
Arturo does have a Harrelson...but to be completely honest and fair...he has a LOT of different trumpets.
The guy has jumped from one brand to another to another for years. I think some are gifted to him by makers hoping he’ll love it and cause the rest of us to go “If Arturo likes it, it must be really good... I’m going to buy one!”.
I know of a handful of websites that claim Arturo plays their horn/mouthpiece. It’s a claim to fame!
I’d love to see a candid, non biased interview with him where he addresses his love for trumpet gear.
RE: Tone Centering for Trumpet (Centering & Tuning) Part III
It’s time to end this. Take it to private messaging if you must, but please let it be done in the public threads.
RE: A little humour
@Dr-Mark said in A little humour:
Annie Thing You Can Do I Can Do Better
Now, that is condescending!
Not to be confused with dropping a 12A cornet down a flight of stairs.
RE: How many of you taught yourself to play?
I did not teach myself trumpet...but I used that knowledge to teach myself French horn, euphonium, piano, and various percussion instruments.
Once you have the basics, many instruments are fairly easy to pick up.
Mastery generally requires coaching though.
RE: Its Been an Age Long Requirement But How Many Can Do It?
Many singers call notes as they are on piano (in terms of octaves).
The lowest note on piano being A0...the next octave being A1, then A2...etc...etc
I don’t see why other instruments couldn’t do the same. That’s about as easy as it can get.

RE: Schlub Damar - TARV - 4 valve
Hello TB community!
This beauty of a custom flugelhorn is still available for purchase.
For anyone that is looking for a unique, world class instrument…this is a great way to get one without a long wait and for substantially less money than a brand new horn.
Feel free to reach out to me or Omaits music with any questions. The horn is listed through Omaits (see link in my first post).
Schlub Damar - TARV - 4 valve
The time has come for me to sell my beloved, custom made, Schlub flugelhorn.
I won’t go into the details, but this horn just doesn’t get the play time it deserves…so it’s time to go to a new owner.
Here is the link to the listing (on consignment at Omaits music in Ohio). Feel free to reach out to me or Omaits with any questions.
RE: I'm desperate and at a lost with reactions to metal mouthpieces.
@tmd He didn't say he's not allergic to silver or brass. (Sorry for the double negative.)
This was my immediate reaction (pun intended).
The vast majority of instrument mouthpieces have silver plating. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe gold plated mouthpieces are silver plated first...???
My first suspect would be silver, closely followed by brass.
