    And if you are Kingtrumpet, air inhaled just before speaking can be the most dangerous!

    Just imagine if you could shoot slides with your own breath -now that would be something

    Not so sure about that. You'd have one heck of a time with intonation problems.

    Maybe not. If one has "Superman" breath, "Superman" hearing and control would probably be present as well. ;-)

    Been there, done that. Eastman 420g when you forget to screw the little slide stop screw in ...... the 3rd slide can go flying! I think I achieved a 7 foot distance once.:huh:

    Good thing my practice room is carpeted.

    OK, now you got me thinking this should be an Olympic event. What a great way to get trumpet players involved in competitive sports!

    No, I tripped on something and the Ambassador went flying ....... And anyone could achieve liftoff of the 3rd slide on my Eastman under those conditions. I'm thinking of starting a band of trumpets (that can do this) and calling ourselves "Don't Sit In The Front Row.":lol:
