I've been meaning to write every few days to keep our clients, friends and fans informed on the daily happenings at Harrelson Trumpets. The high paced cycle of ideas becoming real horns and accessories around here is seriously astounding. I sometimes wonder how we can do so much so quickly while maintaining precision, personalization and artistry. The down side is that I personally do not have a life outside of HT and tend to work eighty to almost one hundred hours a week with days off more than a month apart. My blog entries are few and far between for the same reasons, but I'm working to remedy this situation.
I will be presenting a lecture tomorrow in Schmitt Music's Auditorium (Brooklyn Center location) on the topic, "Building a Better Trumpet". Some of you have heard me talk about science, technology and the development of the trumpet in the past. Saturday's discussion will be fairly general offering insights into how and why we build trumpets in an entirely different way. I'll stick around as long as there are people asking questions or curious to blow on some horns. So hopefully I'll see some of you there!
And I will make a very sincere effort to share my longest blog entry ever detailing most of my activities, travels, innovations and product developments over the past 4 months sometime this weekend. There's so much to talk about; new machinery, robots, our new HT members, Satchmo Summerfest, the Satchmo Trumpet auction, 5MM Modular Mouthpieces, Modular finger buttons, new trim kit styles, Adjustable Gap Receivers (AGR), our Caribbean Connections, the new Bravura S model, our current Trade Sales, our awesome clients and much more.
