    How do you check the compression of a trumpet? I'm still learning the technical side of the game. Thanks for the help.

    Thank you. I tried it with all three valves, and they only leaked air if I blew pretty hard. So they seemed to have pretty good compression for a 70+ year old horn. I appreciate the help.
