On V.I. avoiding work.
It’s an 8va lower than a trumpet and sounds like a German rotary trumpet, not a piston trumpet, but in the trombone range which means it has more colors than a piston trumpet where it can get both more mellow, softer and louder.got to ask. This looks bigger than a normal trumpet. Will it make it louder or more full sounding? Or both? Sometimes trumpets sound a little thin for me.
Looks cool though. I hope they put a finish on it. Shining that much brass can be a pain!
When you talk of thin trumpet sounds are you talking about samples? Thinner sounding samples could be the result of using shallow mouthpieces for jazz lead playing or recording them with the microphones too close to the bell. Brass need a room for their sound to bloom. Do you have an example of a live thin sounding trumpet? I would be interested to see what exactly you mean.
Raw brass is very easy to take care of. Clean with dawn soap, then wipe off with a microfiber wash cloth. I even used a mixture of lemon juice and baking soda. That was cool! Gold plate is the pain! Lol. Every time I touch or clean it I’m like, “Please don’t come off!”
