Introduction: This Is My Super Cool Ultimate Trumpet Stand.

Picture of This Is My Super Cool Ultimate Trumpet Stand.

This is my cool trumpet stand from knex. I am planning to add a hairdryer holder stand on to it to warm up the trumpet for you. When I have done that I will make instructions.
Also, this is the first trumpet related thing on Instructables.
This is the link to my super cool, revolutionary, high tech design for a trumpet warmer

Cool, Now make one for my french horn! lol

vennev (author)ojochris2011-02-18

Ya, anything i try for french horn is expensive, clunky, or just unresonable

Bartboy (author)ojochris2008-06-08

don't play :(

ojochris (author)Bartboy2008-06-08

:( too bad, but I was kidding. I LUV FRENCH HORNS!!!lol

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-17

hey! i have an idea! you know how you put your hand in the french horn to play? (of course you do...) you could make a plaster mold of your hand and make a stand that way. i don't play, i actually play a trumpet too. i just had this idea, since my cousin played french horn.

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-17

good idea, but it wouldn't work. Most (MOST!!!!) advanced horn players put their hand in the bell (that's the term for the open end of the instrument, in case you didn't know, I'm sure you did) at the bottom, and it wouldn't hold the horn properly. And the trumpet is fun to play too ;)

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-17

hmm... now that i think about it, it would tip over.
the trumpet is fun to play! especially when you play starwars music! (my band teacher gave me the starwars theme and darth vaders theme!!! ZOMG!)

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-17 Star Wars was the first song I figured out to play a long long time ago...
Another one you might like is some music from Pirates of the Carribean. It's pretty fun and pretty high on trumpet, but see if you can figure it out.
Something else that you might wanna try is a little freestyle, like jazz. If you're seroius about music, listen to guys like, they're amazing.

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-17

ZOMG Pirates of the Carribean??!?!?!!!? awesome. the movies were ok, but i always liked that music. something else impossibly high to play is the legend of zelda theme. i get scared just remembering it... D: and that jazz vid is pretty cool.

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-17

I have a very good friend (the best trumpet player I know) who already has it memorized, and he might have it written up, I may be able to send you a file if I type it up if you'd like. And you should listen to the music in a lot of the movies you see, you'd be surprised how it might sound.

Bartboy (author)ojochris2009-06-17

I can play hyrule field from zelda...

watermelonhead (author)Bartboy2009-06-17

a copy that i found had a freakishly high note that was about 5 notes higher than high F. D:

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-18

Well, as you become more advanced playing you'll realize how high you can really go. As for that let's put it this way; I play French horn primary, but after two years on trumpet I can hit that note pretty east ;) All in good time... You'll get it.

Bartboy (author)ojochris2009-06-19

And age. The age of the person affects how high they can go. Although, one of my friends won the provincials, and got accepted to Mcgill....

watermelonhead (author)Bartboy2009-06-19

omg! i just started trumpet 2 yrs ago so im not very advanced.

Bartboy (author)watermelonhead2009-06-19

Ha, i only started last year... you're probably better than me... I hate people who think it's easy because of only 3 "buttons"....

watermelonhead (author)Bartboy2009-06-19

yes! so do I! i was on the bus with the school band and we were talking about our instruments, and a clarinet player was making fun of trumpets!!!

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-19

LOL, I've been playing french horn for... Ummmm.......(Having an old man moment XD) 7 years and trumet for about 3. Clarinets are harder than recorders by the way, but the range is huge. (Yes, I play clarinet too)

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-20

what else do you play? bongos? the bassoon? a saxophone???

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-20

ok, time to list... In order of how well I play them French Horn Drums/percussion Trumpet Guitar Recorder(all three kinds) Piano Clarinet Trombone Ummmmm....... Accordian (not well at all) Violin Flute Bass Yea.... Music is my life and I plan on making it my career in the future.

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-20

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-20

Ummm........ no. XD

Bartboy (author)watermelonhead2009-06-19

Clarinet is basically a recorder.

ojochris (author)Bartboy2009-06-17

Ummmm..... I've never played Zelda in my life, so I don't know the music... sorry =(

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-17

ZOMG YOU'VE NEVER PLAYED ZELDA???!?!?! you must have a sad, deprived life. :D just kidding.

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-18

LOL I just don't like the games. I'm more of a guitar hero and gears of war person.

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-18

GASP! dont like the GAMES??!?! *faint* i like the games, i just can't play them :D

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-18

I'm not a big RPG fan, zelda, FF, ect.

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-19

mokay... there's always NAZI ZOMBIES!!! (lame)

ojochris (author)watermelonhead2009-06-19

Haha, I don't like COD either!

watermelonhead (author)ojochris2009-06-20

yeah, its lame :D

Gjdj3 (author)2008-06-07

I like that a lot. Trumpet stands cost a lot so this looks like a cheap (and good) alternative to buying one. Also, the trumpet warmer is a good idea. One question. Does it scratch your trumpet?

Bartboy (author)Gjdj32008-06-07

oh, I also forgot to mention that it isn't SUPER stable, but that's easy to fix. Do you play trumpet?

Gjdj3 (author)Bartboy2008-06-07

Yeah. I've been playing for 3 years. You?

Bartboy (author)Gjdj32008-06-07

November, LOL

Bartboy (author)Bartboy2008-06-07

see the cheep conn trumpet? Rental

watermelonhead (author)Bartboy2009-06-17

pathetic :D i have a pretty nice trumpet, its a yamaha silver trumpet. actually, its pretty frickin awesome.

Gjdj3 (author)Bartboy2008-06-08

Haha. Cool.

Bartboy (author)Gjdj32008-06-08

School band. Band or dance? your choice. What would you choose? although I no longer play trumpet in band, I play drums, I still have a trumpet teacher.

Noodle93 (author)Gjdj32008-06-07

Trumpet stands are dirt cheap. I picked one up for about 20 AUD. Also, it's very stable. I wouldn't trust either of my trumpets with knex.

Bartboy (author)Noodle932008-06-08

umm yeah, well this one cost 3 dollars CND, and I still have loads more knex

Gjdj3 (author)Noodle932008-06-08

20 Bucks is a lot on my budget!

Bartboy (author)Gjdj32008-06-07

no and if you look i compromised a lot of pieces, right where the valves are held in place, if those where all greens, you could guarantee 100 %. Also the wheels are the only other thing touching it the way I set it up.

Bartboy (author)2008-06-08

Finished trumpet warmer! it is the ONLY electronic trumpet warmer ever made.
