Sound File - 1st Trumpet Build
« on: September 16, 2018, 04:00:30 PM »
Fun little project this weekend......My father has a wood lathe, so I figured what the heck, I can build a trumpet, and here is the first sound clip of it. I literally finished it and walked out in the rain to make this recording with it. Excuse the kee-kee....lol....need to practice that one a bit. The trumpet is made out of some scrap white oak and has a delrin mouth piece. The internals were a complete guess, but seems to have worked out okay. It isn't a pretty trumpet, but I wasn't concerned about that. First time working on a lathe as well, I was clueless and struggled making this thing, but no injuries to report  :toothy9:

Get you a set of calipers so that you can reproduce it and the start making changes until you get to where you want it. It's all about the journey man!

Thanks Chris, fortunately I have just about every tool known to mankind, and I love to tinker. I have messed around with wood for years, so this is fun stuff to me.

Don't know what it looks like, but I know what it sounds like, and that will call turkeys. Good job.

Here it is, be gentle, first time on a lathe for me. I have since thrown it back on the lathe and it looks completely different now. I also have very different plans for the next one, more traditional trumpet lines. I want the next one to look the part as well, will take a little more time on the exterior. I may use a brass or copper piece on the wood/delrin intersection.
