Hi

What horn for someone ( trying to ) using Callet's ( sort of ) TCE system ?
Since most of the resistance is provided by the player, shall we assume an open horn would fit.
I am in the search of a new trumpet, and if I could narrow down the specs...

What are you playing ?

Thanks

JiCe

I'm not familiar with Callet TCE, but is it generally accepted that using the TCE technique actually does have the largest influence on perceived resistance - regardless of the horn/mpc ?

I play/have played everything from very resistant 1920's 22Bs to modern .470 with 5 1/2" bells using Jerry's embouchure methods. I've played 2 Callet Jazz horns, (one early run and one later run.

Honestly, it really hasn't ever made any difference, aside from the usual differences between horns. These days I do most of my teaching on a 1960's Olds Special that had some severe bell damage at some point in its life and most of my gigging on a large bore Reynold's Argenta except for a few special circumstances, then I use a 1920 something Conn 22B.

I guess all of this is to say, in my experience, pick horns the way you always have, TCE will work fine on all of them. Someone else may have a different and equally valid opinion.

I've played on the Callet Sima for the last 4 years and my feeling is that it's not particularly a free blowing or "open" horn. It's right down the middle or maybe a hair on the resistant side.

That's pretty much how I would describe my Sima C.

Many of Jerry Callet’s earlier trumpets were made with larger bore sizes while his latest designs were smaller bore and more efficient designs... take that for what it’s worth. Having said that, all Callet horns seem to be well regarded, and it makes sense to play on Callet mouthpieces and trumpets if you are going to devote yourself to Callet’s method?
