I opened my page here at TM and it tells me I have not posted in several weeks. I've been here and used the search feature to look up the spit problems and I'm going thru the list of posts and have found only one so far that relates to the search parameters. It is mentioned from others on site not to ask the repetative questions that have been answered thru the years on TM. So I have learned to use the search... but I find spending much time reading a post that has nothing or little to answer my question... I practice and I hear the crackle of spit in the horn. I use the spit valves to clear what I can...and halfway into the next line I play, the crackle is back. Oh its frustrating! I take out the second valve slide and blow into the horn too. but does that DO IT? not really... I hope I'm not too rude in bringing this question to the table again after all these years of being asked from other members. Or what is the search parameters I need to find my question in the search?
