    It is nice. When I first read it fast I thought it I read restored by Oprah. That took a second to realize that she didnt do it.

    That's funny! I had the same thing .... I even got a mental picture of Oprah testing out the trumpet (sent me off for another cup of coffee, whoah:lol:).

    As much as I prefer the Recording solution, it might also be worth trying the generic vintage trumpet approach. Just put on some thicker slide grease, pull the third slide out enough to help out those low notes, and leave it that way. You don't use the third valve as much in higher notes, and should be able to lip them up a touch with probably less effort. It was easier when the manufacturers just made the third slides longer so they didn't require any manipulation beyond lipping, but still possible with modern horns.

    Sure, just put some vasoline on it and leave it alone for a few weeks........

    Not the best idea, I like the idea of the elastic, not a rubber band.

    I've used choice #1 before on a horn with no stop and a slick slide (Conn 6B). If you get the tension right, it keeps the slide in, but you can still move it pretty easily.

    Silver sulphide formed in the chemical exchange from sulphur usually found in a rubber product. Keep all rubber out of cases or otherwise near an instrument!
