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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
RE: Seeking input on Rules
With the above said, I might add, Barliman has been doing a fine job of policing as well.
Barliman and Kujo are very capable as is our administrator. I think we have a good team and am happy with this. Perhaps having Leadership meetings on a regular basis may help distribute the load and minimize the burden, which again argues to adding another mediator. Team work always wins.
I recently removed myself as a moderator. I no longer check the site on a frequent basis (life is busy right now!)...so it just didn’t make sense to be a moderator. Somebody more active on the site will be a better fit.
I’ve been a hobby woodworker for about 8 years. Lots of small items, restoration work on antiques, and slowly working my way to making tables.
Like many hobbyists...we can be very strongly opinionated when it comes to materials, tools, methods, and finishes.
For example, here are one of my opinions.
Painting wood should be punishable by law...specifically jail time. Painting quality hardwood would be a life sentence.
What projects are you planning?
