Trumpetgear Goes Live with the CTR-506R

Posted: January 7, 2010 in Gadget Talk

I thought that given we are now in 2010 it was about time we got something on you tube to demonstrate a few horns etc.

Luckily I had some spare time over the Xmas break to do a quick video shoot of the new Carol 506R with Satin Bell.

This really is a nice instrument, and I am happy to have spent some time on it over the break.

P.S. Please be gentle it’s my first vid – and this was totally unscripted or rehearsed!

    Great vid – looking forward to more!

      Hi Roger,
      Thanks for the comment. This was really just a first run at it.
      Next time I’ll aim to talk a little clearer and have some clear info.

      I’ve just ordered a Zoom Q3 to get the sound quality up – this was recorded with just a flip mino and the small audio clip on the credits with a Zoom H4n.
      So with the new Q3 I will be working on more in the future for sure.

    Good job, Shawn! The satin finish looks great. Does the sterling silver lead pipe make any detectable difference to the sound? (I have noticed rose brass lead-pipes give a mellow touch to the sound). Looking forward to trying one out.

      Hi Derek, thanks for your comments – a little hard to say about the leadpipe given that the bell was also a changed variable.
      The combination does give a nice ‘core’ to the sound though.
      These really are nice horns – but I’ll let the players/testers be the judge.

      I’ve ordered a standard CTR-506 in lacquer from the factory just yesterday – should be there by mid next week at a guess.

      Let Don know and he might be able to arrange a test.

      Rgds, Shawn
