And the horn is always worth at least 30¢ more.
Put dimples on the levers that are Braille for 1, 2 and 3. Then you are prepared for playing in the dark in a consistent way.......
I'm used to playing in the dark...pretty much do everything in the dark. Actually I AM in the dark...but that is obvious enough.
Find a horn maker that'll help you out....Ivan perhaps?...
For real, I think you should try it out.
It DOES have its unique look...and being convertible is a cool idea.
With a double horn valve set, many other possibilities exist..even with a four-valve single horn valve set the change valve COULD easily route to a mute, or a pitch change..and be varied according to need.
Donations, anyone? All donations may be paid directly to Ivan at Jaeger for the "Build that crazy rotary jazz trumpet" project.
Ivan, you "liked" that far too quickly for my comfort.
Nice design, In my opinion: Start with good quality pieces, a straight bell that you bend yourself, brand new valves from somewhere that knows how to do it best, and then see how.

You have to post the picture on a photo hosting site, and then post the img link here. I guess that saves space here.
I use photobucket...but there are probably better sites.
