    A flat and G sharp in same measure

    I have "Fanfare for The Everyday Super Heroes", by Brian Story. It is in the key of C, and has one measure of 3 sets of triplets -- with an A flat and G sharp in the same measure. Why would that be?

    Instrument cleaning

    Does anyone have experience comparing spitballs to blow dry brass for on the fly instrument cleaning? If so, do you have a preference?

    MP brush

    All the mp brushes I've had have a metal shaft, and they eventually rust. Is there a nylon brush out there for euph mp's?
