    Bach Artesian. I tried one. Very wet, but it played well.

    Can't you go and play with your dolls and leave us in peace?

    I do drain quite a bit of liquid when I open those levers. Yes, they're levers, not Amados.

    A guy I know went, "(High) C, B" as quarter notes in a song when he was in a pit orchestra, and his second valve slide shot like a rocket as well. He sad from then on, alternate fingerings were it, because he couldn't find the slide!

    Saliva production definitely good for teeth; teeth definitely good for trumpet playing.

    This is an interesting question because my son plays cornet and I normally play flugelhorn. I have noticed that he forever seems to be draining buckets from his cornet while I get very little in my flugelhorn. I had put it down to his playing style. However last night I was playing his cornet and was amazed at how much water it collected. I couldn't get to a rest before I was gurgling. His cornet is a Rosetti my flugelhorn is a crappy Tristar so would have expected the flugelhorn to be the problematic horn.

    Anyone ever heard of a Rossetti cornet? IMHO, Tristar is the better-known brand...

    Rosetti is very popular with students. A beginner's instrument definitely but bery popular with schools and junior bands.
    Tristar may be better known globally but for all the wrong reasons.

    Rosetti???? Hmmm, they make stones too don't they? Are they any good for transposing?

    I have seen loads of them in the UK. Checked their website and it says they are a UK based destributor so I am guessing that they are known elsewhere by another name either locally branded or by the manufacturer name.
