This is the guy who has a half dozen or so clips on You Tube in which he plays jazz standards on a variety of vintage horns. He plays with a backing track in his garage and he's really good! Check him out on his Connstellation 28A cornet playing 'Round Midnight.

I love his Youtube channel. And he is a TH member, too.

Trumpet Dude is one helluva player with a very professional technique and sound.

He certainly demonstrates why we only need one instrument. He sounds the same on everything he plays.

I hear this all the time. There are horns he plays that don't fit him at all. Some fit his style very well and he sounds much nicer on them. So I guess I've never agreed with this statement. Style of playing the same. Maybe. Sounding the same? No. I've recorded myself often on different setups and there are marked differences.

I sound different on my Martin ~Handcraft~ Flugelhorn, compared to how a sound on my Ovation electro-acoustic mandolin .
