musical instrument market?

by goodun

Hi, I'm coming to berlin soon and I'm looking for a rare german style of trumpet. Does anyone know if there is a musical instrument market or second hand/antique shop that has instruments. Any info would be great. Thanks.
(P.s. Im looking for a e flat rotary trumpet, incase there is any geeks reading).

Re: musical instrument market?

Just had a bit of a look with Google, just searching for Blasinstrumente and Berlin, and quite a few links popped up.

You could try http://www.vintageaudioberlin.de/ There are a couple of trumpets there, but I wouldn't know an e flat rotary trumpet from any other trumpet. This shop is in Prenzlauer Berg, and if you decide to go there, there is also a rather large instrument shop inside the Kulturbrauerei (Knaackstraße 97). I think they mainly have new instruments there, but perhaps the staff can help you further. I somehow imagine they would be more inclined to help you if they're not in the same market themselves ;)

Best of luck! :D

You might contact the Curator of Musical Instruments at the Library of Congress and also at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC to ask for places in Berlin to find your rotary trumpet.

Also, don't rule out ordinary antique dealers. Often people have something like this sitting in their attic and take it into an antique dealer. These can be great bargains because the dealers don't always know what they are worth. A friend of mine found a magnificent hand horn with a painted bell and all the original crooks and mouthpieces in such a store once.

I know there is an International Horn Society so there must be an equivalent for trumpets. Check their web site too. The IHS has a section on their web site that sells instruments and they also offer advice.

Lots of possibilities. Good luck and let us know if you find it. BTW, I am not a geek; I'm a little old lady. 8^)

Travel Tips for Berlin

Take a sightseeing tour which...

by kywildcat

Take a sightseeing tour which is offered right on the Ku'damm for a reasonable price. There are so many monuments to visit, for instance: The Brandenburg Gate, Der Reichstag, Die Siegessaeule, Der Funkturm, etc., etc.
When I was a child I was always fascinated with Schloss Charlottenburg. Here some insight on some of the places you might find interesting:
The museum at Haus am Checkpoint Charlie records the wall's chilling history. One of the most monumental structures in Eastern Berlin is the gigantic Fernsehturm or TV tower with an observation platform for unbeatable views and Alexanderplatz is the commercial and shopping hub of the former Soviet sector. In Western Berlin, the Kurfürstendamm or Ku'damm, is a 3.5km strip of ritzy shops, cinemas, bars and cafés where you can check the throbbing pulse of the city. Berlin boasts an admirable collection of museums: the Zoologischer Garten forms the beginning of the Tiergarten, a restful expanse of woodland where there is a series of museums centred on the Neue Nationalgalerie. The great museums of eastern Berlin are centred on the Museuminsel, and include the Pergamonmuseum and the Bodemuseum. I was there when the wall came down.....wow, it was amazing! People were reunited that haven't seen each other for decades! We've helped a guy from the East find his family at Prinzenstrasse. He had never been to the West in his entire life and asked us to please help him find the way. So we took him there and he rang the door bell. It was breathtaking to see people in such awe walking through the streets, admiring what we've been taking for granted all of our lives!

Berlin Tip

by kenbac

The view from the TV Tower.
We visited the TV Tower on a sunny July evening just before dusk. As we went around the observation deck, dusk started to set in and the lights of Berlin started to come on, yet we could still clearly identify all the sights. When we had completed the circle, darkness had dropped and all the lights of the City were on, so we went around again. Truly a memorable experience.

Memorial Day

by MD2nd

Today, the 1,200 soldiers of the 3rd US Infantry are placing these small American flags at each of the more than 260,000 gravestones at Arlington National Cemetery. They will then patrol 24 hours a day during the weekend to make sure that each flag remains standing until May 28, when the Memorial Day ceremony takes place.

The President will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

On May 27, the Rolling Thunder will roar into Washington on their annual rally to honor Vietnam veterans and to demand the return of all MIA’s.

On May 28, thousands will visit the Vietnam War Memorial and touch Wall; others will visit the Korean War Memorial. And plans have been approved for a long overdue World War II memorial.

Thousands of towns and cities across America will present their own Memorial Day celebrations, from the smallest villages which bring out their only fire truck and the Boy Scouts, to the largest cities with elaborate parades and speeches.

There are 70,000 gravestones of Americans who rest on foreign soil where they fell, from the hillsides of Naples to the rows of cliffs overlooking the Normandy shore. And they will be visited also. As they should be.

But where are the graves of those who lost their lives in the Cold War? And where is their memorial? We also need to recognize those who give their lives protecting us, not surrounded by comrades, but by killers—not given a hero’s funeral, but an unmarked grave—not killed in combat, but by treachery.

At the NSA there is a memorial wall named "They Served in Silence," which honors NSA employees killed in the line of duty. At the CIA, there is a granite wall carved with 77 stars. Each star represents an intelligence officer who gave his or her life in the line of duty. There are 77 stars, but how many died, anonymously, without recognition, without acknowledgment, we’ll never know..

I am working toward a museum that will honor all the men and women who worked for democracy and freedom during the Cold War. The museum is not about reviving old hatreds, but rather about promoting lessons learned. It’s about teaching democracy and world peace.

..But here, today, in this place, this is our time to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, who gave their life for their country, who understood that the true meaning of life is to make a difference. They have made a difference, and our lives and our country have been moved by their deeds.

Panorama from the Kollhoff Building

by matcrazy1

This red clinker-clad Kollhoff building on my picture stands on the corner of Potsdamer Platz and Potsdamer Stra?e. There were advertisements where I could write that the express elevator - the fastest in Europe - leaded to a panorama platform with breathtaking views over the whole area. Excuse, I didn't have enough time to go up there, maybe next time.

Just in case you want to go there:
Lift to Panorama costed 3.50 ?.
Opening hours:
Tue - Sun 11.00 am - 8.00 pm, last entry 7.30 pm;
from April, 1: Mon - Fri: 11.00 am - 8.00 pm, last entry 7.30 pm.

Qi - a palace phantasy

by MD2nd about Friedrichstadt Palast

Berlin's Friedrichstadt Palast is considered Europe's biggest stage for shows/variety. Have never been to stuff like that, so when gfs and me made it there it was my first time ever attending a variety/show. I thought this Qi-palace phantasy was quite of an impressive performance. So if one likes shows & entertainement like that, I guess, Friedrichstadt Palast is pretty recommendable. Check out their program/link below.
