As I became more interested in Holton, I began to research upper brass instruments, especially the trumpets. I assisted Dr. Rolf Olson of The University of South Dakota and Dr. David Reynolds of South Dakota State University prepare a presentation on Holton Trumpets for the 2011 International Trumpet Guild Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I basically stumbled across the Herald Trumpets when going through the storage areas containing trombones.
