I'm not in disagreement with Doug's statement...or at least I think so. You can treat a specific problem in your playing, that it may refer to a specific use of any given anatomic part of the system, but it is likely to alter sympatheticaly other variables. Hopefully without hi-jacking this thread I'm going to post a video of Thomas Stevens speaking about Schlossberg trumpet teachings...It was interesting to hear that he would only give exercises that treat students weaknesses/liabilities and would not even touch on things that are workong well.

For me personally all information is great to have. One can try out wat works and what not.

Hello Wil,

Thank you for the clarification.  My best advice would be to get to a well stocked dealer and sample a variety of instruments.  "More sound for less effort" is a hallmark of all of our instruments, no matter what the bore size is.  If you have specific questions after that, or are looking for a particular characteristic that you did not find in what you tried, I'll be better able to make some more specific recommendations.  You can email me directly at ben@seshires.com at that time and we can discuss.

Ben

Dear Ben,

I will visit a dealer soon. Thanks for your kind reactions.

Regards, Wil

Cam did you end up getting one? 

Howdy....I'll wait for another month or so until after the 'tax season' is figured out and I see what's left in the bank account!

In the meantime, I'm playing a Stork T2 lightwt that is working very well. People are liking my sound with it, despite a few reservations I have of my own.

But, at least now I'll have a good benchmark to test things out.

So is the NY1 still up for sale?



Afraid not, I've amended my post accordingly, thank you.

Dear Ben,

Thanks a lot for your answer. Probably something went wrong with the email. No problem. I'll try to send it again and to the adress you mention.

About the bones: I never played any Shires before. I am looking for an even more sonorous sound and less effort in playing. I am now 61 years old. I only teach and conduct, so don't play in an orchestra.

Kind regards, Wil

Dick Nash played a Bach slide Williams bell for a while. Better tuning than Conn Bach combo because of similarities between Bach and Williams slide length, but when I tried it I still didn't like it. Too many weird individual notes. Horns are built to work as units.

Okay I lied. I sucked it up and did it. Happy bidding!

Agreed.
 
But my objection is that I don't think "head wisdom" is ever the basis for a conversion. 
 
I don't doubt the honesty of some conversions, but I do doubt that head knowledge had much to do with it.  Head knowledge seems to get applied later, maybe to ameliorate buyer's remorse. 
 
I think apologists have been a larger influence in driving people away from belief than any amount of arguments from skeptics.

I can think of a scenario in which a conversion can be at least derivative of critical thinking ...
 
A critical thinker recognizes and decides to take advantage of the benefits of a healthy religious community, and that ends up leading to a conversion. That's a bit of a stretch to call it a result because it would be indirect, but still. But yeah, frankly regarding conversions to religion and critical thinking, it's a can't get there from here situation. That doesn't mean critical thinking will prevent such a conversion either though. It's just that the reasoning that might produce a positive sense of religious belief doesn't also reach to the doctrine in the same way--i.e. you can't slip the doctrines in on the coattails of the positive psychological/health/social effects and still be thinking critically in regard to the doctrines.
