    A wet trigger screw will rust nicely.

    Well, I know this will drive some of you crazy, but I've never disassembled the trigger to clean the tubing. Probably best not to look.

    Like I said, "If it ain't broken, don't fix it." I have never done that, and have never knowingly had a problem because of it. Just luck, maybe.

    Well you'll eventually notice when your first valve feels like a small bore compared to the rest of your trumpet...
