    oh wow. so that's what red rot looks like. actually looks like mold colonies on bread. my olds is definitely not that, it looks more like "birth mark" in the brass.

    I agree, there is probably 10-15 years of playability left on this horn. It aint pretty, but until it is a real hole, the horn still works. Changing a tuning slide or leadpipe is one of the most critical things to do to a trumpet! That is something to think about before jumping on the cosmetic bandwagon!
