    What's your take on the slide trumpet. I know it's not played much anymore. I've seen a few videos of ppl playing them. Has anyone used one? What is it like??

    I have one that I got just to goof around with. I've used it on a couple of gigs for fun, but it wasn't necessary. The Jupiter model is fun and doesn't cost very much.

    And the nice part about is, I didn't have to hire a phone service to manage the inbound call volume once people found out that I had one. For me, it definitely isn't a necessary item.

    I think Chuck Findley plays one from time to time.
