    Have you noticed? Some trumpets have a brace near the main tuning slide, and some don't. . .why?

    Braces stiffen the horn. The more braces the better the slotting, the darker the tone.
    But it´s also that every brace and especially the position of them can make a different trumpet.
    Take a look at Ken´s project for modifying a dog of trumpet to a very good one.

    Hey CHAMP.....

    Crowmadic's question seemed like a real question to me.

    I bet not very many people knew the answer.

    I didn't.....

    Champchump, Champchump, what have I done to be so disrespected? If you would have taken the first line of my question (Have you noticed?) with a humourous reaction intstead of sarcasm, then your enimies would be my enimies. Then you would be feared when you enter a sarcastic reply to a Thread. But, that being said, let me say that I thank Herbert/Puukka for his constructive response, and leading me to a very interesting site. MJ and Solar Bell, I'm glad you benefited by my question. May the mysteries of trumpet construction and playing be understood by the brother & sister hood of players........... crow

    Champ,
    Do you realize what my last message was mimicking? I ask this because my hunch is you're a young guy, and may not be catching some senior sarcasim. I'm being friendly now. .......... crow
