    Allow me to clarify this one please. The fourth valve is only made by the instrument companies to entice the N+1 sufferers and those having craving for extra gadgets. Sadly, there is no use to it. It is non functional and merely decorative, to entice N+1 sufferers into purchasing the next toy.
    That is the absolute truth, I have researched this............:sorry:

    Though appreciated by many, it is not required.

    An ITG review from 2005.

    The newest player in the Internet trumpet community is a forum-based website called the “Trumpet Master.” This forum uses the same PHP-BBS system as the Trumpet Herald, which means that you visit their web site to read messages and post your own there rather than doing so through an EMail discussion list such as the Trumpet Players’ International Network (TPIN). There are not as many people participating in the Trumpet Master community as there are on Trumpet Herald, but some prefer a smaller community. What makes TM unique and extremely valuable is that they have created special forums specifically for working professionals.

    Manny Laureano, principal trumpet of the Minnesota Orchestra, and Wilmer Wise, long-time New York City freelancer, are the moderators of their own forums called “Manny 911!” and “Wise Talk!” respectively. They are available to answer any questions and they have enough control over the discussion to keep out the “riff-raff” and to keep the discussions going in positive and meaningful ways. Other forums do not provide this kind of structure so it can often be frustrating and difficult for a top pro player to be involved in discussions on a long-term basis. Manny and Wilmer give a great deal of their time and wisdom to their forums. Sage advice from top working pros is a valuable commodity that was difficult to obtain in the pre-Internet days. Now, it’s there for anyone to use.

    Word on the street is that a TH member, Trumpetmaster, became frustrated and started his own site. I dunno.

    No, the trumpet is the mistress. And a demanding one, at that!

    Perhaps it's that I have too many mistresses, which is creating jealousy?
