    Interesting! At the time Laboda joked that "everyone knows it is the greatest honor to appear last." (Meaning we should feel honored that the described order put the CG last.) Do you have the email...

    Well, that's interesting. In my early CG Band days, we had Col. Sam Laboda (director of The U.S. Army Band and senior military musician, as I recall). Our service medley at the time had the CG first,...

    Sorry they were annoying! It's hard to know what people find useful. Those are supposed to be for easy sharing of a thread, printing, etc. But they went away by themselves, probably because the...

    I've never broken a spring...knock on wood! But I've heard too many stories to think it doesn't happen.

    On the plus side, that's a pretty easy way to clean up the technical passages you mentioned!

    My first horn had standard Amado keys. I had my repair tech drill them out so the hole was more practical.

    Now Adams is using their own version, so the size is correct for the horn they put them...

    One article I saw suggested you try to blow out a candle with a trumpet by playing loudly and putting the bell right in front of the candle. We all know that won't work.

    I'll start the ball rolling here. Jeff, if you have a decent repair tech handy, I would ask them about shortening the existing springs. Best would be to get a new set for use in the future and have...

    Most people would play this with 4 right-hand fingers on the 4 valves. For someone used to a 3+1 setup, they might choose to reach around with the left hand to operate the 4th valve. Both work. The...
