    I'll confess I picked up one of those Sandovalve things recently off ebay and have to admit it is pretty cool. It is a little firmer than a typical valve action and really gives your fingers a work out. Also because it is kind of percussive it helps you really hear how 'in time' your fingers are. I know you could do the same thing with a real trumpet but I can leave the sandovalve thing just laying around the living room with the kids and the dog running around and just pick it up whenever I have a spare minute.

    I'm glad you saw that and actually bought one of his gadgets. It is better than pounding on your trumpet keys/valves (don't have to worry about doing something harmful to your trumpet keys or casing).

    You can't beat a good Desmodromic valve, especially when you're shifting your brass knob racing down the runway!!!
