Welcome to new Temby Trumpet Artist - Gianni Marinucci

Gianni Marinucci"A few years back I was asked to book some special guests for the late night Jazz I ran at The Melbourne International Brass Festival. I immediately thought of the man who inspired me so much through my career. That man was Bob Venier. His sound and musicality on the trumpet gave me real direction and continue to inspire me to this day. On the gig, Bobby told me his newly acquired Temby trumpet was the best horn he had played. Of course I was curious, but was involved with another company. Recently I went and tried a whole bunch of horns as I was after a new direction, and the Temby B.V. model was one I tried. I could not stop thinking about that horn, and eventually borrowed one to try on a whole bunch of gigs. Needless to say I fell in love with it. It helped make that sound I hear in my head and played so easily.

I am so proud to endorse the trumpet of my idol Bobby Venier, beautifully designed by Dave Temby, and to be involved with the wonderful staff at The Music Place. Thankyou Dave, I so look forward to working together!”

Cheers,
Gianni Marinucci
