Free Mute Holder!

After checking every mute holder on the market today, I decided I could do better than what was available on line and in the stores. If you need your mutes available in a short amount of time, you may be interested in my solution. I got the music for a new musical in town just a few days ago and after looking through the material, I realized that the number of quick mute changes was going to be a problem. No matter how close you get your mutes, it always puts pressure on these quick changes and I don’t enjoy…

Chop Saver by Gosling (Update)

In our previous post, we featured the product “Chop Saver” by Gosling and received several questions as to how effective it is. To answer these inquiries I can only say that the product works as well as Chap Stick and other products I have used through the years. The outstanding endorsements made by the musicians in our previous post should be enough information for all. Try the product and find out for yourself if it is something you need to include in your trumpet case. I have used both forms of this product and have been satisfied with their results…

Chop Saver by Gosling

Several weeks ago, one of our readers wanted to know if the product Chop Savers by Gosling was any good. At the time I had no idea as to its merits for I had never heard of it. So, in order to be semi “hip” with the trumpet world I took my readers advice and searched through every Walgreens, CVS, and Walmart and found that no one had ever heard of it. After searching in line, I finally found their home page and decided to request a free sample to try it out. Free sample of course means you get…

A Playable, Wooden Trumpet

When you think you have seen everything, along comes something new. In this case it is a trumpet made entirely of wood. When I say entirely, I mean just that as even the valve springs are fabricated from wood.

Is A “pTrumpet” In Your Future?

Many have asked if the pTrumpet is a serious instrument and I am ready to voice my opinion (if anyone really cares for my opinion). As some of you may know, I am currently performing every Friday and Saturday in my Dixieland band in Branson. What some of you may not know is that I am performing on a trombone! And that instrument is constructed entirely of plastic and fiberglass. Yes I am a confirmed Pbone performer and you may want to read more about this instrument in a couple of my previous posts- 1.
