Ringling is selling the circus train. You can bid on the passenger cars here:

Unfortunately you'd be required to take the logo off though, how lame is that.

Is the designer dental work for brass players still a thing? I had heard about some trumpeters getting their teeth cut up to play better.

I have a Bach Strad 50, serial number 38XXX. I am the second owner of this horn. Around 1986 or 87, OE Thayer's and bracing were added. This horn is an absolute tank and plays fantastic. Just bought a new horn and don't need it anymore.

Slide has some wear on inner plates, a solid 7/10 in slide motion. Has had some work on the bell taking some creases out. Some scars, but still a beauty.

Asking $2300, buyer pays shipping. I do not have a case to sell with this horn, will ship heavily padded and insured.
I am willing to trade for a nice King 3B or similar quality tenor if trading party is willing to add some cash.

The physical side can play a big part if you don't have the best teeth to be a brass player. That means that there's always going to be a hurdle to be overcome before being able to reach the neutral starting point enjoyed by others with "film star" nashers.

When I first got on this forum I posed a question about that. Some dental "experts" chimed in that it didn't matter. I thought it was poppycock at the time and five years later, I still do. Straight teeth are an asset, much like good health in general.

I wonder if that applies to size and shape of chops as well.

Incidentally, I like the way you phrased your post! I think that is a very, very valuable way to conceptualize it.

The physical side of playing is the small part. The mental side is the big part.

Just realized - one good thing about having Trump as president - Don't have to listen to my U.S. Representative (Louie Gohmert) proudly make inane statements as the Republican rebuttal.

Great Speech last night by Trump!
It was great that he actually did not embarrass himself or your country.  That's definitely a first for him.  As for truly great, I doubt we'll be listening to quotes from it 100 or more years down the road.

It was obviously not something he wrote as it had a certain coherence to it, but it was written for him.  The language was simplistic and the sentences were short.  Something tuned to his vocabulary and attention span.

Overall I'd say it's the best speech I have heard him give.  Let's see how he does next time he talks without the prompter screens.
