Well, it would be hypocritical of me to argue my previous point further, considering I had my 42B since 7th grade. If you want to get one, go for it. If you think you can keep it in better condition than I did, you shouldn't have the same issues I have had with mine. :lol:

Play for a few months with the 6 1/2 AL that comes with the horn. If you feel it is holding you back from something, whether it is going lower, or going higher, try something new. I will tell you, I could easily hit anything from pedal Ab to triple Bb on that mouthpiece by my senior year. Definitely couldn't do it anymore, but it is possible.

I will laugh as they overwhelm our enemies in a flurry of spotted banana hammocks.

That's intense... I mainly want a higher one specifically for jazz, otherwise I'm fine with a standard mouth piece to be honest. I want to be able to show up our first trumpet player in range for solos. ;) I'm still working on range though to be honest. I can hit high G easy, anything higherr is kinda iffy, and it takes a second or two to hit it. Just gotta practice though!

You will NEVER match a trumpet player in the high range with a trombone. It's just not physically possible. However, you have the advantage in that a trombone has a more modest, warm tone that is more akin to vocals, which will make your solos sound much smoother and emotional.

And speaking of vocals, learn to sing. Sing out your notes to a digital tuner. Get an ear for them. Then sing your pieces. Start trying to push your voice higher and lower than you can currently. It helps you out with both tone and what your notes should sound like, as well as air flow and volume to reach those notes. Playing higher requires more air, just like singing higher. Playing lower requires more air, just like singing lower.

If you can't easily sing a note you want to hit, you won't be able to easily play it. Good thing, you will be able to sing your notes long after you stop playing. I can't play my previous range of notes, but can still sing them flawlessly. If I ever seriously got back into playing, it would help me relearn everything much faster than if I couldn't do that.

Well, I don't mean any trumpet players. Our trumpet player doesn't try to get high during solos. I would like to play high to outmatch him, personally. I like playing high during my solos, but I can't get a very good sound out of it yet. If I could, I would be able to make some better sounding solo's (just how my style is.) There's a lot I need to work on for soloing, and playing in general. Not that I'm bad, but I could be wayy better.

Yeah, we have a new band director this year and he's getting us to sing during tuning, and I'm sure he'll get more in depth to it. He's a hell of a director..

Just keep in mind, most trumpet players I have heard are very competitive, and will throw in more frill if you try to show them up. They can change notes faster, go higher, and have more experience in both parts due to their inherent musical pieces and required skill. Unless you practice lip trills and glissandos any chance you get outside of school, and have an arm faster than Nolan Ryan's fastball, trying to outplay a trumpet in a solo is just going to end badly.

My advice: embrace the spirit behind your instrument. Trombones are the melodic instruments of the low brass, but mostly provide background harmony. When you stand up for your solo, it should be like when you have listened to a song on the radio 400 times, but on that 401st time, you notice a guitar riff, or a drum break that you never really noticed before, but as soon as you do notice it, every time afterwords, you cant help but love when you hear it. You play within the music going on around you, adding that little bit of flavor that makes everything groove together. That's not to say don't throw in your high notes and a little craziness. Just don't make it overbearing like the other instruments try to do. ;)

Any time I played a solo with the jazz band at my school, you would have the trumpets and saxes wailing on 20 measures worth of their own solos which they wrote down days in advance to practice. Meanwhile, I would take 10 measures of improv and get more curious onlookers applause using that same idea.

Yes definitely. I'll retouch the borders rather than re cutting it if its ok with you. It should be done in a few minutes

If you want to wait, I can do a 4 string sometime but I don't want to re-cut it now

That's the thing I love about the trombone: it has a very interesting sound that the other brass instruments don't. The way it's designed and shaped just gives it a different tone quality.

If you want to play high, work on low notes. Play pedal tones and low scales to help your lips gain more flexibility for those higher registers.

Trumpets will always have a range advantage, simply because they're smaller horns. Transposing, you might be able to hit "higher" than trumpet players, but in terms of actual note position on the staff, you won't. I can hit high Bb above the staff on a whim when I'm playing tuba, but high C on trumpet? I can only brush right now. Though they're "equivalent" notes, and I can go "higher" on my tuba than my trumpet, the trumpet itself is still a higher instrument. If you really want to show up trumpets, just transpose their parts and play them.

Also, you should invest in an Arban Book.


Also, I'd like signature, with a trumpet and tuba if possible. If not both then tuba. :)

Ah yeah, Arban's a great book for any instrument. Some others I have found very useful for trombone are:

"Les Rythmes Du Metier" by Gilles Senon. Also called "Job's Rythms for Bass Clef Instruments"
"347 Studies for Trombone" by Perenyi
"The Trombonist's Handbook" by Reginald Fink

That's another thing about playing instruments: You will never get to a great playing level by only playing during band. You HAVE to practice on your own to see big improvements. I NEVER practiced after school, and I was still sitting 2nd or 1st chair between sophomore and senior year. I still kick myself thinking about how much better I could have been if I HAD practiced like my directors always told me to.

If you want to, you'll find a way. It's a simple as that. I had this problem very recently, and I've resigned myself to the fact that to do football and band I'll have to sick with only practicing 4-5 days a week instead of 6-7. That's just the nature of the world. You can't always do EVERYTHING and have time leftover.

Maybe I'll start practicing more soon outside of school.. I just never have the time because of sports.

Well, I found out the song I will be doing for solo ensemble in a month! It's a piece by Mozart, somewhat slow, sounds pretty nice. Should be a good song choice, and I should be able to play it rather nicely.

I also play the piano and keyboard very well.

I no longer have the pearl drum set, I had a set of Roland TD-7's now.

Are you looking for intermediate or professional? Used or new? What's your price range?

I can help you in your quest as I've done the same thing this year.

Price wise I have no idea, I've played on professional trumpets before, damn well if I might add, but I think my parents would be mroe comfortable with like a 300-500 intermediate trumpet, but I'm not sure.

I wish I could tune my 1894 emerson cabinet piano, but nobody around here knows how to.

But I may get a job at a local music store.

Hey guys! I just had a conference with my band instructor and it looks like we're going to play at a few jazz festivals in the coming months and I'm going to try and start playing at a church. Just had reauditions for seating and part arrangement.... made first chair again!!!


Nice! Great job



Thanks man!

We started playing a new song for concert band called Maiden Voyage. The composer is local so we might actually get to meet her before our concert. Idk but I really love this song. It's kind of confusing because it switches quite frequently between 9/8, 6/8, and 3/4 time. If I can find a recording of it I'll post it up, but I probably won't be able to find one considering how new it is.

A kid in my class just bought one off Ebay. It was a Bach 4-10 or something. I'll look into it tomorrow and let you know.

In that range you're looking at a used Yamaha or something similar. Finding a used professional trumpet is hard in that price range. Ebay is a nice way to get an idea of prices, but don't be afraid to contact dealers.

If I were you I'd definitely go to http://www.trumpetmaster.com/vb/ . They're a big trumpet community and they're extremely helpful. They put me into contact with the guy I got my trumpet from. Highly recommend them.
