    Didn't they try adding Teflon to some of the synthetic car motor oils? If I remember correctly, it played havoc with the cylinders and pistons.:-(

    I purchased a new Pan Am trombone in 1950. It was really a very, very good horn. I gave it away in perfect condition to a needy school student after I used it for twenty years. I have not owned a Pan American trumpet but I'm sure I will buy one soon enough.

    Did you use Break-Free or some other form of teflon on your Trombone? What about on your trumpet?

    Hey, don't mean to butt in but i have one of said cornets from 1927. It's quite beat up (bell creases, bent bell, lead pipe, just about everything you can think of) but it still plays absolutely wonderfully. I can't compare it to a Pan-Am but it is definately a step above student horns today.
