We are beginning production of a new series of videos explaining and demonstrating trumpet-related questions and techniques. The will include the following categories:
Now that Jake Baldwin and Christine Palmer are back with Harrelson Trumpets after finishing up their studies at New England Conservatory and the University of Colorado (Boulder) respectively, we have 3 full time professional trumpet players in the shop at all times! This means that you will soon see and hear us demonstrate a variety of Harrelson trumpets in solo, duo and trio settings. We will also mix in the occasional Bach, Schilke, Benge, Yamaha, Monette, Kanstul, Getzen or whatever horn so you can hear the differences between horns.
I firmly believe that every trumpet has advantages, which is why I personally own and play so many different instruments made by so many great manufacturers over the past 150 years. I always come back to my personal Medusa, Summit One and Midnight horns as they are easier to play, much more consistent and very comfortable. But there are times when a Bach or some other horn is the best option for the situation. Like when I'm playing outside in a crowded space and the people behind me need to hear what I'm playing.
Keep your eyes open for two new video releases per week and let us know what you hear as we switch around horns in various performance settings. Please send your requests as well.
The following are a few of the hundreds of topics we have brainstormed and hope to eventually address in the new video series.
