    "Solid brass B-Flat mini-size TRUMPET with white metal mouthpiece. 8 easy depress keys. Plays tunes without special trumpet ability. Appears in good condition, no dents. Trumpet comes unpolished (shows its original patina). In the past, someone used brass polish on the horn. Slight residue is still present. 16 inches in length. Height - 5 inches. Weight - 1lb 4oz"

    Yeh I saw that...looks like fun!! :D

    Of course everything has to be in C (I'm guessing) and no accidentals. On second thoughts I have enough trouble with 3 valves...but the comment about not requiring any ability is appealing (and somewhat fitting)!!

    Wouldn't you think that if you pressed more than, 5 or 6 keys at a time you would get something flat or sharp. Or just a lot of major and minor 2nds? I don't think I really want to know.

    Do Re Mi....maybe? How does that work? There's no extension of tubing or anything....I'm baffled!
