    Happy Xmas everyone!
    Can any one tell me if there should be top felts on the stems of strad trumpets under where the finger buttons are? i had a strad cornet which did have them.

    There is a felt on the valve stem. Right under the top valve cap. There is a bumper in the slot on the top of the valve cap. It's usually made of a ribber substitute. bach has been using these for decades.
