Anyone ever try them ? They look like a well designed key......
Wedgwood Brass - saturn
Yes, I had them on my Harrelson Bravura. They work fine, but I prefer Amado style myself.
I have them on 3 horns, Schlub Dingo, King Dizzy (ex-Harrelson, and my favourite Bach 37 L.
I like them, and they work well. Never had a problem.
I have them on several horns, and prefer them (at least for functionality; they are sort of ugly on some horns).
Thanks Everyone, I think I'm going to give a set a try. Tired of replacing corks, and this just looks like a better design...
Just not sure what it will do to the sound. So I'll have to try it and see ! I'll let everyone know......
I look forward to hearing from you on the Saturn key. Neither levers nor Amado devices are perfect. Please tell us how you like these as our often discussed N+1 theory not only applies to trumpets but everything associated with them.
No problem ! Give me a bit as I have to get them ordered and placed on the horn, but I will get back to you on what I found. A friend of mine who is an instrument tech put them on his trombone and he is doing some fine tuning on them. He will put them on my horn so I figure he will have all the bugs worked out by the time mine arrive.
I love the Saturn water keys! You do have to be careful when installing them, especially on a c trumpet. If you put one on the 3rd slide a lot of the time you won't have enough clearance to kick out that slide. It ends up hitting the water key on the tuning slide. I've never had a problem with this on a Bb though. You can run into this problem on rotaries too. Otherwise this is a spectacular water key and I put them on all of my horns.
