RE: Adams new Balanced Trumpet at Taylor Music
Stan Kolb, President of Taylor Music, told me that Adams & Trent Austin are planning on having this new axe at ITG!
FYI, Taylor does offer a 30-day money-back-guarentee, so that is a nice trial period if you want to order one now!
Adams new Balanced Trumpet at Taylor Music
For the fans of the Olds Recording, Adams has just released a new balanced trumpet made exclusively for Taylor Music in Aberdeen, SD with offset valves! The horn is here: http://www.1800usaband.com/products/view/7875
and ACB did a video review here:for your viewing and listening pleasure.
Based on the Adams A3 model, this new 'Fulcrum' model was modified and now features Olds Recording features:
- The 2nd valve is offset to the left, for a more ergonomic hand-position.
- The entire valve-section is moved forward, to better balance the horn and to provide the performer with many hours of stress-free playing.
- The spring-return 3rd valve trigger provides smooth, easy tuning for certain 3rd-valve combination fingerings.
I am geeked by this new horn and look forward to playing it at ITG (I hope it will be there)!
The balanced aspect is cool (as long as you don't crash your mouthpiece into your chops), but I am more excited to see the offset valves! I always enjoyed playing the Recording because of this feature ... and know with the outstanding quality at Adams that this horn will be well done in every way.
How lives in SD?
The first response will be from Dr GO, I imagine = king of the Recordings!
RE: CarolBrass 'Balanced' Trumpet in silver plate
These are $1,700 + Shipping from HornTrader. I have something else in mind that I want to purchase, so this little gem can be yours for a great price (includes shipping)!! I think this and the CarolBrass Legends 'Dizzy' are their two best playing horns. Can blend this one 'in the trumpet section' or play solo. Very versatile. I always like something that looks a little different = and this balanced beauty stands out from the B & Y crowd quite nicely.
Thanks, Gary! You have the sweetest collection of axes I know = all are '10s'!

RE: The One
you might need a 2nd Harmon/Bubble mute for that Committee ... because adjusting the cork fit it will make the fit totally different on the Recording.
Isn't that what I said?
Did you say that? I never saw it ... sorry.
As far as ‘the one’, my Adams A4 LT-S is that to me. Ordered with the A4’s 5.5” bell in red brass (the LT comes with a 5” bell), this trumpet plays better for me than anything I’ve ever had the privilege of playing. My Marcinkiewicz is also a superb player, but the tighter wrap bothers my hands on long gigs, making the overall experience less than perfect once the gig goes beyond 2 hours. Just thankful to have some really great axes to enjoy!
RE: Eugene Blee's Flexibility Exercises
@Dr-GO Eugene and Michael Denovcheck were at Cincy together. Mr D played with the CSO for 38 years until his passing in 1979. So he started there prior to EB. I wouldn’t be surprised they used similar drills, as I believe both also spent time at CCM. The question really is, who designed those drills?!!
