    Thanks John. I am not specifically looking for the Planets. That was just brought up in another response. I looked at the Ralph Sauer arrangement of Jupiter. Terrible euph part!

    Hi Sara,

    Do you know the arranger? The version I found requires E flat trumpets.

    Thanks,

    Also, make sure all of your slide are tight and that you are not over a hard surface. One time, when I blew the spit ball through the horn, my second valve slide shot out and landed on the floor. I...
