New Years Day Practice Run
« on: January 02, 2020, 10:21:06 PM »
Been on Christmas break from work and my two little boys got sick so I have been in the house with them. Needed some fresh air yesterday eve so I stepped out and did a little practice run. Any tips, advice, feedback, and/or criticisms are always appreciated. Thanks!

Im no trumpet man so I cant provide any suggestions. However if I sounded like that, I wouldnt hesitate one minute taking that thing to the woods. Sounds good.

Oh yeah, I remember you posting pics of that one. How do you like the Micarta?

I like it. Gives the call a little more mellow sound. Was pleasantly surprised with the pitch of the Kees from the 4. Usually a 3 gives a more realistic pitch.

I had one trumpet with a Micarta MP, worked fine. I agree, I always preferred the #3 MP.
