    never used one myself but a friend got one after he ruined a white dress shirt. he never had a problem with his because he would only use it while playing his horn. it came off when the horn when in the case and he also made up a bunch of inserts and changed them regularly. don't know if he still uses it , haven't seen him in over 15 yrs.

    From a marketing point of view, I wonder if they sold more Bach's because of the feature. If Monk played trumpet, it could be the deal maker.

    Folks, it DOES happen, no matter how careful one might be. It hasn't happened to me, but I haven't won a lottery either and I know that happens to somebody.
    Here is something you can do yourself. After some serious playing, take off the bottom valve cap and take a look what might be in there. You may see a little bit of moisture - especially if it is a little cool in your room or wherever you are playing.
    Grime gutters are stupid no matter what their reason for being is.
