Stick a fork in it...this thread's done.
Consider it forked.
I usually grease mine with regular grease, then pour some of the oil that I use for my valves over the slide to speed it up.
I know of people that put valve oil in the container of grease to make a even mix. Not something I would do, but it is probably easier.
As Dale and Robin point out, the third slide only affects sound when the 3rd valve is depressed. Otherwise it is turned off, regardless of its position. I've noticed some teachers never share this info and their players tend to work too hard at getting the slide out and back in rapidly, sometimes affecting the sound as much as not even using the slide would.
That would not be true for my third valve. It is very happy... and is never depressed.
How unfortunate! With no ups and downs, no ins and outs life can be a real bore. When its comes to life, Gnomady's horns just blew it. Only pipe dreams! Gary needs to get braced for the next trumpet case (or was that basket case.....?).
OMG... you have knitted several threads of my recent posts into these short 3 lines! To me life is a real bore... thanks to Schilke and Olds mouthpieces. And as for the case thing, my intent is to Torpedo my current case with this replacement. And may I suggest BigDub as your editor, and his first task woud be if he can scrample your use of Gnomady. AND finally, after cleaning my Martin Committee and blowing water through it as the manual that came with the horn suggested, the ups and downs have never been faster.
I tend to agree with Dale. Also, remember that there was a time when trumpets did not have a third slide ring, adjustments in pitch had to be made with the embouchure. So maybe the same thing would apply; instead of trying to get the slide out on a fast run, be conscious of the pitch and make a slight embouchure adjustment. And as gmonady said, how many people can HEAR the pitch being sharp on a note when it goes by very quickly?
(Oops.... guess this thread had run it's course already......mea culpa).
One my few unintended puns. I was installing Ubuntu on a notebook and was having trouble with the GUI - Gnome. It was giving me grief and I was going gnomemady. Then this thread came along. I'll pass on Torpedoing this thread any longer and any thoughts of editing - freedom of speech you know. Be careful that the water in the marting coma-itty doesn't leak out of the bottom valve caps.
