Want to Hear a Trumpet Scream Like an Electric Guitar? Check Out Adam Rapa.

Trumpeters in the know know of Adam Rapa. I’ve blogged about him before. He’s an amazing player. Check him out playing on a Yamaha Silent Brass Mute (the best practice mute you can buy, now upgraded), put through a distortion pedal. I don’t know which one. Adam, if you’re out there, we’d love to hear about your gear.

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but at 1:28 Rapa and the Army band bust into an arrangement of Chuck Mangione’s Children of Sanchez. Not long after, Rapa takes a solo and wails like a bad-ass electric guitar. Superb!

In The Practice of Practice, among many other things, I cover using electronics like pedals and loopers in your practice. It can give your practice a real boost! Check out the book.
