As I mentioned on episode 34- How to Start Beginners, I recently gained possession of two interesting instruments. They were both made by King. One looks kind of like an oddly wrapped cornet, and the other looks like a small baritone…or maybe an alto horn. When I got them working, as they’d been sitting in a basement for the past 20 years, I was surprised at how good they sound. As it turns out, one is a flugelhorn, and the other is, according to the bell, a trombonium (no, I don’t know what that is either). I promised a demo, and so that you can see them as well, take a look and listen here:
The tune is something I’m working on for my next 6-trumpet arrangement. I thought it worked perfectly for this. Let me know what you think.
