    I think the horn is a collector's dream

    To me, it just means that it is a standard Trumpet in Bb that has been bent be held like a saxophone - curvy mouthpipe (neck), valves to be pressed like a saxophone's keys.

    I think it shouldn't be too difficult to bend a project trumpet off eBay like this. Whether or not it'd become a collector item, or only reasonably plays in tune, that I don't know.

    This much I figured out. After all Gandalfe bought it. Just didn't grasp why. Hardly as obvious as a straight bari. That one went straight to the heart. I gave my teacher the 2008 sax calender and every now and then, he will start asking questions about what it is like to play, how it sounds etc, which I cannot answer because I did not have the guts to buy it.

    OK, bent trumpet. From looking at the beast, I still think it screams for a reed and Eddie Harris.

    The Miraphone is gorgeous and waaaay too much money for a reed player. I bought the Jazzophone for my fav trumpet player to perform on. Gotta keep him happy. :cool:
