For the past 30 years as a professional trumpet player I have participated in a wide variety of demanding situations that a musician can find himself performing.Sometimes on occsions it is wise to be well prepared and to go into these situtions with a very high level of quality tools preparing your arsenal of defensive weapons against any kind of aspect of music making.Over the years I have been trying to find good quality reliable equipment to meet my personal demands.In todays competitive markets there are so many instrument makers and dealers all over the world and most brands you will have to pay top dollar for almost any kind of professional level instrument. A couple of years ago I met master craftsman of O dos se yo wind instruments Peter Pollard from Manchester UK. At first when I heard about these instruments I immediatly thought they were just another run of the mill instrument.Now, ive played tested and performed on these unique instruments I can be very confident that their quality and characteristics have been very helpful in difficult times just when your looking for that special kind of instrument that gets the job done.Pollard instruments range from student modles through to medium models and up to professional custom line. The student model in particular the OTR1200 Odyssey Bb with changeable slides to C is a very versitile student trumpet indeed giving breadth of sound ,great response in articulation and attacks and controlled lyrical movement in those pianissimo passages without losing any of the previous mentioned characteristics.One of the most outstanding features of these Odyssey instruments are the relation quality to price.The student or professional are getting a great deal as the low price does not reflect these instruments great qualities. I am now a Pollard instrumentalist and will trust these instruments to do the job. Thank you Peter Pollard.
