    In a word .... no.


    Okay ..... maybe. But, why would you want to play a little flat or sharp?:dontknow:

    I prefer saddles and rings on my trumpets and cornets.
    I really like the feel of controlling the length
    of tubing on both slides. That is just my preference.
    I actually changed the 1st slide trigger to a saddle on my
    Bach-Stradivarius Bb Cornet because the trigger kept jamming mid way.
    Yes I have properly lubricated the slide but still it kept jamming on me.
    As a result the saddle completely solved my problem. Seriously!!!

    I believe triggers work very well for Flugelhorns (especially if the 3rd slide tubing points in a downward
    direction) and Rotary trumpets (because of the way you have to hold the instrument).

    I'd love to see a pic of this one! I have a '49 in raw brass. Nice horn. I'd love to fine a '40 or a '41.
