Alison Balsom, international soloist discovers pTrumpet for the first time
One of the world's foremost trumpet players has a go with a plastic trumpet. As stunning as it is to see the fiery flash of brass and sterling instruments on the marching field, those instruments are subject to wonky tuning with extremes of temperature in football season. I wonder if the plastic is less subject to those tuning issues? It's also kind of exciting to think of marching bands on the field with gaily colored horns that match their livery. or contrast. This could be interesting, and it seems like it would probably be cheaper than the traditional construction materials. She certainly makes it sound wonderful.
