Hi, I don't own them, I play 2 of them for services each month and the third is in the same village I work in. I phoned the Vicar and he agreed to me using it to practice once a week in my lunch time. Very handy it is too.

HI everyone
I used to have all my instruments in one large room in the basement but now, they are all over the house.
I have a beautiful Thomas 1776 Organ with an exquisite antique cabinet. I also play on my Roland FP 7 stage digital piano, and I often switched to my Roland G-70 Workstation. I very seldom play on my Suzuki GP 3 Grand Mini digital piano, looks fabulous but does not sound that good.
I have an Harmony Steel guitar wich reminds me to go and practice it.
Have fun practicing.

More trumpets than I can shake a stick at :) Well, one is for sale at the moment. It's a great instrument (Schilke D/Eb trumpet), but I don't have much use for it thesedays, and I figure it's better off being played.

I regularly play the drums but does the coffee table count as an instrument?

I might as well add another instrument to the list of what I all ready
have. Although I play two of them at church. I play the handbells
now at church.

What I'd really like to have is some sort of grand piano, possibly a Steinway, but sadly, it wouldn't fit into my house or my budget.

My sister in law has a Baby Grand I don't know the brand but it sounds good

Contratrombone64
May-28-2010, 00:01
I've never played or heard a baby grand that I liked, they have a certain woosey quality. In fact, a top of the line upright is a better deal in many ways.

Montefalco
May-28-2010, 00:15
I have played on a few baby grands, and maybe one or two concert grands. The baby grands are good if you want to get a lot of loud passages, however I think that concert grands can capture a larger range of dynamics, and with a nicer tonal quality than the babies. Uprights capture a good range of dynamics, and have a nice tonal quality as well, however they can capture quieter dynamics, unlike concert grands which capture louder dynamics.

I do agree a good upright can sound excellent, one of our local music group had his Boesendorfer sent over from S.A and it is a beauty:)

I own piano (Schlögl ), clavinova Yamaha, and I am collecting little drums, flutes, ect. because I want to open music school for little kids ( 3-6 years) so they can be introduce to music as soon as possible.
It would be a great game for them and also a good way to learn something while they are playing and maybe it could help them to decide what instrument to play in the future.

Small kids just love all things music, and it sorts out the tone deaf from the talentless.

Only if it's played badly :grin:
When I went to Italy a few years ago, I saw someone busking on the didgeridoo. They obviously hadn't mastered the method of breathing needed to play it properly, because they were very red in the face from breathing out so hard. However, they had amazing breath control, because they were able to play for minutes on end without breathing.

If we are on about the same thing it is called rhythmic breathing, I came across it when I played flute but I never managed to master it, I have a Vinyl of James Galway who uses it in a piece by Paganini called 'Moto Perpetuo' Op11 the title should be self explanatory, it goes on for several minutes and you cannot detect where he draws breath, most impressive

Montefalco
Jun-02-2010, 07:43
Yes, that Moto Perpetuo is impressive. I heard it played on the trumpet on the radio a while back.
It sounds like the same technique, although I think there is another one called circular breathing, where you continuously breath out through your mouth while inhaling through your nose.

JHC
Jun-02-2010, 09:30
You are quite right Circular it is, it has been so long and my memory seems to be a bit faulty:o

I have a rudra veena (my main instrument), a Hiren Roy #1 sitar, a Hiren Roy studio sitar (playable accoustically or electric), an unnamed tanpura from many years ago nicely battle scarred but wonderful tone, a Saraswati veena (South India) and a Phakawaj (drum).

Montefalco

That's an exotic collection Povster.

Hi Montefalco,

For my music it is pretty much un-exotic. LOL (This is the INTERNATIONAL Music Forum!) ;)

Anyways, here is a photo of them:

Hiren electrified sitar (smaller of the two - on the left)

Do you like Irish folk music?? I have been a fan for years (The Chieftains, the Dubliners etc)

Mostly Classical stuff in the school's String Orchestra (when I wasn't playing piano for them), though I dabbled in Jazz Bass for a while (then gave up on Upright Bass and went back to trumpet and other various instruments, though I still occasionally play a little bass (small amount of bass, not a small bass))

People don't realise how much pain you go through when learning bass particularly pizzicato in jazz, even the left hand fingers go through hell until you get hardened

Sep-26-2010, 21:29
You can pick up a classical with imperfections to the finish for about £30.00. I learned to play on one and still have it. Nothing wrong with it, just does not sound so subtle as a solid top, but better than nothing.

Picked up a ridiculously cheap Selmer 1401 Bb Clarinet yesterday - my first "serious" foray into woodwind instruments (I've played very small amounts of bass clarinet and descant recorder previously)
