Hi all…...

Just an FYI….I’m selling my Taylor Trumpet. ($3,100.00)  It’s the Chicago style 460 II Lite model in raw brass. Has a 5 1/2” bell, huge sound and DOES blend in a section.  Don’t let the “lite” word fool ya…the horn weighs over 3lbs!!.  (—gotta pay for this “River” trip I wanna do   ;-)

 

Let me know if interested. (I also have a Yamaha C trpt 6445 model available)

 

Thanks!

Gordie

 

 

P.S.  my 2 cents on the Ellington Tour? ......... I used to really like the Bass Clarinet…..cool sound…but after Mr. Temperley’s rendition of “A Single Petal of a Rose”??......I LOVE that instrument.!!  .....would be sweet to hear Wynton doodling in the background with a closed cup mute…...lots of possibilities with a muted trpt & bass clarinet, OR a bass sax…

 

Laters…..
