Smile Trumpet/EVI (Electric Valve instrument)

Hey folks! I've been playing trumpet for about 20 years, a good old Bach Stradivarius 37. In fall of 2020 though, I got myself an EVI (NuEVI to be exact, by Swedish manufacturer Berglund Instruments). If you haven't heard of it, it's a crazy synth trumpet that resembles the three-valve system of a trumpet. It's also the less famous cousin of the EWI (sax version).

Would be awesome to find other people who also plays one of these things! I do have an example of how I use it, with my jazz fusion band Paradise League. Heavily inspired by Japanese jazz fusion I wrote a song called 'Acrobat' with the EVI in mind. The title pays homage to sax/EWI player Masato Honda and his song 'Athlete'. Me and my group recorded a live session video of 'Acrobat', that can be seen on YouTube (search for "Paradise League" and it should be pretty far up).

If you've got some fusion ants in your pants, go check it out! Would be fun to chat about/discuss the instrument, its sound or just the music in general. And of course, everything Japanese jazz fusion!

Cheers!

We have a musical family, if you can call it one. I play guitar, my husband plays drums in his own band.

So I finally got around to learning guitar last year during COVID lockdowns. Bought myself an acoustic, found a teacher (initially over Zoom, now in person), practised every day that I could. Today I picked up a Stratocaster. It's a Squier, it's as old as I am, and it's in need of new strings and a setup. But it still feels like Christmas

I've been off and on the violin since I was six. It has a pick-up amplifier that admittedly I barely used when playing. I play the piano and recently moved to a Casio CDP-S100 rather than a standard piano. I love playing with the electric piano voices.

I've been playing guitar for 4 years now, and the first reason I got into guitar was purely because I was bored, and then I followed the advice of my online friends and got my first guitar: Yamaha's FG800. Because I had no prior knowledge of the subject, I started with the basics of music, and then I learned guitar techniques through various guitar lessons on YouTube. It's been 4 years now, and although I'm not as good as those guitarists who play great, I can still hold my own as a personal talent.
