I don't play an instrument. There.....I said it. My secret shame is now exposed. My son, however, amazes me with his talent and passion for the trumpet. He started playing in seventh grade and has played it every single day since. From junior high band, high school marching band for five years, drum corps for the last three, and last year a scholarship to play with the amazing Marching Southerners of Jacksonville State University. OK, I had to brag because I'm so proud of him. For his talent, yes. But his hard work and dedication to something he absolutely loves amazes me. He spends so much time learning and fine tuning his talent that I had no doubt the Silent Brass was something he'd love and use a lot. I just wasn't prepared for how much though! He lives in a dorm, and now everyone within a three block radius can finally hear themselves think! When he comes home, he can be practicing In the same room with us, hitting those high notes, and all we see is a beet-red face with a trumpet coming out of it. He loves the true sound he gets through his headphones, and said can now hear the notes the way the crowd hears them, which helps him fine tune his passion. The only regret I have is that I didn't buy this for him way sooner. His dorm mates agree! Thank you Sam Ash and Silent Brass for helping me give my son the perfect gift!
