Selman is certainly not "Selmer" though the manufacturer would like you to believe it.
that's how I got my first Selmer...er Selman off of Ebay. The add stated it as a Selmer and it wasn't and I thought I could make it work for me and it just didn't. Seller wouldn't return the money so lesson learned.
Once upon a time my pops bought me a selman horn. That was long time ago so let me remember.
Ok it came back to my brain.
Yeah I still have it and the valves are sworking.
Most selman has the problem of "valves".
I gave my selman to my teacher and she or he looked at in and couldn't figure why the valves wouldn't work.
So I dumped a few bottles of valve oil onto the valves and pushed and pulled them up and down for like an hour. Then I took wd40 and sprayed a whole bunch in.
I did wash the valves after that because the horn smelled like... ughh
After a while the Valves started working. Now the valves work alright but the trumpet is still chines crap. I think it is something to do with the metals. I never recommend this horn. Not even for beginners.
