    All I know is, I’m old, that’s what I’m told to do by my teacher, and it works. Not fast, but consistently.

    Mine has a bright tenor trombone sound, and although I can get almost as far down in pitch as the main instrument, the tone is not like a bass trombone.
    I like my Duplex very much.

    I use a LITTLE slide grease on the inside of the receiver pipe. I had some problems the first time I put it together, but not since. Great horn.
