    Why would six valves help? Everyone else would still play flatter than me!

    How about a perfect pitch trumpet?

    This was built Andy Taylor as a commission for a collector in Japan. This instrument is nearly seven inches shorter than a regular Bb trumpet.
    Not only is it of compact dimensions, but it has an unusual feature for any Bb trumpet. It has a slide operated by the thumb of the left hand that can de-tune any note by up to a semitone. This enables the player to bend any note at will.
