Hi

robbie Fraser here. im a trumpet player spy. I also supply the JERICHO horns. If any one is interested please feel free to drop me a line. If you would like a particulary brazen trumpet to add a little oomph and sizzle to your horn section id love to hear from you. im based in the hampshire area, i have a very short attention span and i havent read in 30 years but if ive heard it i can play it. If i havent heard it ill blag it.

i like the standards but ill have a pop at anything.

my horns are

Selmer something or other
Very rare Courtois evolution ii.

Oldblower, perhaps you could sue Mr Fraser for failing to put a disclaimer on his instruments declaring "Warning, the playing of this instrument may cause the player enjoyment, thus leading to repetitive strain injury and/or soreness due to inexperienced lips!"
Robbie, (I'd best get this in quick before Old Git and the Caslm get involved and start demanding "insurance" payments) But if you follow my advice it may save you millions of pounds! Now about my fee?

Welcome to the cafe.

Hi Robbie!

A Big Welcome to the Cafe from another trumpet player - great news about the Jericho alto sax; soundas like it could fill a genuine gap in the market now that BW has vacated it, by accident or design. Hope that work comes in for you. The trumpet is so much easier with only 3 buttons to press and no need for straps, ligatures and reeds.

Kind regards
Tom :thumb:

Hi Robbie "Jericho" sounds interesting, not like this I hope." Then the lamb ram sheep horns began to blow.
The trumpets began to sound.
Joshua shouted glory.
And the walls came tumbling down."

Welcome to the cafe from a marginal eccentric and failed stand up comic. Best Regards N.

I assumed this was the point in naming the model "Jericho", not that the saxophones are actually made from lamb ram sheep.

They'd be popular in Wales, mind. I'll PM Birdman, isn't it.......................:thumb: Maybe Snake Davis might try one, too....... :shocked:

Yes kev, however I do believe that a well tanned turnip skin make a beautiful pair of shoes as worn by a certain ex-beatles musician and featured in his rendering of Mull of Kiintyre.

According to the National Enquirer the said shoes after at least a wearing of 20 and subject to perspiration factors can be re-cycled and used as a base for a very nice vegetable stock. Please rinse thoroughly in a mild salt solution before use. (National Enquirers guide to veggies budget eating plan August edition 2001.) Must be true. :mad: Regds N. Couldn`t resist this one . "What did the veggie say to the carnivore who usually never attends gigs? Nice to see you turn-ipped. Just another little joke which did not help my stand up career. N

Welcome to the cafe Robbie.

This thread is raising three pointless questions in my mind:
1- For what religious (not tactical) reason was Jericho destroyed?
2- Can a vegan play a saxophone with leather pads? Is there an issue already about it? Should we start alarming the vegetarian saxophone world?
3- Should I pick up a trumpet (I gave it up when I was 18, but I still remember how to play it) for the sake of it?
