    Try "365 Trumpet Lessons" by Nick Mondello.
    A copy was given to me last week, it works for trumpet players of all persuasions.

    For the trumpet player who likes a bite of food while on the gig, try "The Best Darn Lead Pipe Swab"......Period! I changed a word or two;-)

    Both Tim and Nick are TM guys,and their products are great.
    .........and while I am making recommendations, give some Ultra-Pure oils to that trumpet player. You can never have too much oil:cool:

    How about a valve alignment by Josh Landress:cool: It worked wonders on my ancient Bach.

    I think it is more a case of some trumpet players covering up illiteracy.....?
    ;-)

    Many trumpet players that I know could use a metronome!
    A gift certificate for sheet music
    A mouthpiece pouch
    One of those reusable chemical heat pads. You can put it in the case on those cold days and the horn is not sub zero when you take it out of the trunk of the car!
    One of those new hi tech battery powered music stand lights
    A professional ear cleaning!
    A professional hearing test!
