Darn Tootin'!

Wait, don't play taps for that retired trumpet yet! Jamie Cornett breathes new life into well-used instruments by turning them into bright and brassy lamps. After this horn played its last notes, the artist fixed each piece in its own base and a shade featuring sheet music. Sure to make the musician, music teacher or music lover's heart trill with delight, this quirky piece of home decor gives this instrument a standing ovation. Handmade in New York City using an upcycled trumpet, maple wood base, lamp wiring, and lamp shade.

      Comments about INSTRUMENTAL LIGHTING - TRUMPETS:

      This seems like a great idea and the product images online were very attractive and classy. What arrived, however, was a shabby, tacky version of what you see online. The mount was misaligned and there were dents in it and the trumpet was junk (not just worn, or historic, but unattractive. Looked like it was picked up at a yard sale). It looks like it belongs in my grandmother's basement. Definitely does not look like it cost close $250 to make and won't do for a wedding present, which was my intended purpose.

        We bought this for my trumpet playing daughter. She absolutely loves it. She was able to search the serial number on the trumpet and found it to be from the 1940's from Czechoslovakia. She thought that was very cool.

          I bought this for a family member who is musically inclined. I loved that it looks a little worn. It's pretty fun to think about who once played that trumpet and what kind of life it had before it became upcycled.

                I bought this as a gift for my college age nephew. He plays the trumpet. He got the gift and sent me a note saying that it was one of the coolest gifts that he had gotten in a while. I appreciated the opportunity to buy him something unique and special that he will have for years to come.

                    I contacted customer service to see if the artist would make a lamp from my husband's saxophone. They were quick to respond in the affirmative and were also quick to send the prepaid UPS label. The artist did a fantastic job and my husband loved his unique gift. An added bonus is the saxophone is now on display instead of being buried in the basement.
