A golden clam for a great web site.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably have heard of Robin Moffatt’s hornplayer.net web site.
For you lowly fungi that may have indeed been living under a rock, hornplayer.net is a tremendous resource that excels in a few, very content-rich areas.
First, and probably foremost to many is the free classifieds section. Long before CraigsList became all the rage here in the U.S., Mr. Moffatt (in the U.K.) had established hornplayer.net as a primary destination for French horn sales and purchases.
Whenever a student asks me where to shop for a used horn, hornplayer.net is high on my list of recommendations. The interface is clean and simple-to-comprehend, which is most likely a big part of what makes this area so popular.
Horn list archive
Another section that I refer to often is the Information Archive.
Over a three-year period, Mr. Moffatt cataloged and alphabetized key discussions from the Memphis.edu horn discussion list. This period archived by Mr. Moffatt was active — punctuated with very lively and informative discussions.
Other areas of interest:
- French horn teachers database
- The bizarre rise and fall of the Veneklasen horn
- Walter Hecht’s Significa (which are currently unavailable)
Take a look around… you just might find references to both myself and Dr. Ericson!
