    Especially if you tell them it's Holy Water.

    I thought that spit flowed up south of the equator. Do you put rags on the ceiling in Australia?

    Aha, ever the educator Robin? That's why my hand gets wet then! Perhaps trumpets made in the northern hemisphere are not suitable for south of the Equator then?

    One of the cool things about playing in a church or other historic site is that we get to spit on the floor. If they object, a spittoon is a fun way to comply, and a little olive oil down the leadpipe makes for a satisfying splat sound, at least north of the Equator. I dunno, maybe it sounds like "talps" down under.

    Since the stuff that comes out of the water key is mixed with valve oil, I always try to put down a paper towel or something.

    The problem here in the U.S. is that now a genuine spittoon is about as rare as a very vintage trumpet. I suppose in this respect is that I've now three of them, one my maternal grandsfather used (he chewed tobacco), one I recovered from the Wabash Railroad Terminal in Pittsburgh PA when it was demolished (I worked on that demo crew), and one my mother-in-law had (she dipped snuff). When I practice at home I use a small plastic lined waste basket as likewise I have each of the four boys I'm presently turoring have alongside their chairs since the floor is carpeted and graciously made available for us to use FREE.

    P.S. Real spittoons are a beast to clean and polish.

    Truth be told, in a church setting I wear black pants and let out the condensation on my leg--discreet and no noise. I do know my mobbing techniques though.
