    Happy New Year to you Dr. Mark. I just hope you don't get the spit napkin and the sweat napkins mixed up.

    That does it... I am getting an Eclipse. I will keep the cool black towel, and give the horn that is left over to you.

    My private teacher would take a mini trash can and stuff it with paper towels.

    I prefer to aim for the woodwinds. :D

    Good plan. I'd like their cornet please, to complete the set.

    I use a newspaper on the floor at home for the spit. The newspaper usually dries out by the next day. I change the paper once per week.

    For gigs (sitting) I have a black "terry" face cloth that is on my thigh so it blends in with the pants.

    I keep a cotton cloth in my pant pocket for standing gigs.

    I have multiple cloths and always keep a "fresh" one in the case especially for the church gigs. They of course get washed regularly.

    Since a glut in the supply of second-hand English cricket bats is saturating the market just now, I'm considering investing in an industrial power grinder to convert this dirt cheap supply of useless wood into wonderful super-absorbent sawdust. A modest quantity of this inside a small funerary urn would, I feel, make an excellent portable spittoon for use on gigs, prior to being disposed of as 'authentic sporting memorabilia' on Australian e-bay.

    I would like to place an order for such a system at this time.

    You don't need the urn, just use the Kanstul. Sounds like it's already half full of sawdust. ROFL

    ( BAM. First hit of 2014 ).

    I get my sawdust from wood-shedding and English sausages.
