Wax Cylinder Recording

Postby Bill Troiano » Mon Jan 14, 2019 2:53 pm

HI all,

Please check this out. We recorded this onto a wax cylinder. We've gotten together a few times in the past 2 years to record this way. What you hear and see in this video is an iPhone recording which makes it sound much better than the original, but certainly not representative of the sound on all of those old recordings. We had the phone going while we recorded onto the cylinder. If we get the actual cylinder recording online, I'll paste that link here too. Enjoy. Being that we're all tuba players, I recommend using headphones to hear my tuba part.

That was great!
Thanks for sharing.
I wish more trumpet players would play cornets instead.

sound concept...
If you look over in the Media forum, You will hear a very fine cornetist play in a band with which I was associated with quite a bright sound…but a good sound.

During that same era, at several jazz festivals we would bump into Don Goldie, who had been a very bright-sounding player earlier in his career, but at that time was an extraordinarily smooth player whose sound – with a K Modified Selmer (not thought of as a mellow sounding trumpet) was very mellow.

You are probably not old enough…but it was Don’s trumpet solo that began the Jackie Gleason Show every Saturday evening “back in the day“.

That was terrific. I agree on the cornet usage.

Here's a Youtube link to the actual cylinder recording we made last Sunday. Recording technology has certainly come a long way. The original recording (video) at the top of this post was recorded on a phone (iPhone), which we also had running simultaneously with the wax cylinder recording device. Below is the same recording on the wax cylinder.
