You neutered your trumpet???????????? Poor flair.....
That is because you have a stop ROD, not a stop SCREW. The screw can dent the slide if it is hit multiple times.
Dump slide? Have you ever thought of putting one on it?
Looks like he is back to this again.......
There are by the way, many manufacturers that do choose not to add a spitkey to the third valve:
Professional Bb Trumpets > Bach
YTR-9335NYS - Xeno Artist Modelle - Yamaha - Deutschland
This has nothing to do with the hole in your head. Obviously, these are reputable companies that understand the convenience of a third slide spit key. They seem to have a universal take on why not however. You can do your own research as to why, I already asked them the question.
your trumpet is not suffering. The small mark that occurs by occasionally reaching the stop screw will not contibute to a shorter horn life. I assume you are talking about your Yamaha instruments. I do have a question howevers. Why do you push the slide out so far that it hits the stop screw hard enough to cause a DENT? All of the Yamaha instruments that I have played need nowhere near that much compensation for a centered low D or C#. The stop screw is actually designed only as a safety net.
I understand it will not hurt the trumpet. I just want to keep it with as few dents as possible. Well, when I press the 3rd valve (for example when I oil my valves or when I pick the horn off a stand or something) the slide slides, hitting the stopper.
I made a stopper out of yarn that would go around the 1st and 3rd slide finger rings. Does yarn contain anything that would tarnish a silver trumpet? It of course wouldn't scratch it, would it?
Oiling the horn, keep it horizontal ; picking it off the stand, take it inserting a finger in the third slide ring : you just need to be accustomed to do so.
And no problem with yarn ; just avoid rubber.
