If you're a trumpet player and don't follow David Monette Trumpets on Facebook, you probably should!

Yesterday Dave posted a video showing a new Monette 2nd Generation Flugelhorn currently under development. The video featured Jeff from the shop floor giving a demo of the horn, which is said to be 65-70% complete, briefly playing Feels So Good and commenting that (as a trumpet player) he's not been able to play the High Ds before. This new flugel is built to play up there with stability, ease, etc, etc.

It took a grab of the ensuing messages on FB:

Although Dave is in parts quite blunt, he is also very respectful of Chuck's chops and suggests that Chuck was limited by 1970s flugelhorn technology that he is attempting to remedy.

I thought the compliment carried a lot of weight to come from Dave and was worth sharing here.
