    Their horn(s) are worth more than their car.

    Years ago I was hopping on a Sydney train with a mate of mine who played trumpet. I saw another trumpet player hopping on the train.(He didn't see me and my travelling companion and he had not met.) I hopped in the next carriage and worded my mate up about the gear this guy used.
    My mate went and sat next to the guy and did the "Excuse me. I know this is a silly question but do you play trumpet?" He then went on to tell the guy the mouthpiece he played on and the horn as well as the style of music. " You wouldn't by any chance play on a Bach 3c?etc." the guy fell for it hook line and sinker. He said "How do you know so much?" and my mate said " Any player who knows anything about trumpet can tell".
    Truthful answer. If the guy walking down the street has a very marked button, he/she probably has a really bad technique.Players with good techniques would be virtually indistinguishable.
