    Hi Ed,
    You stated:
    "My point is that all the hype of a more expensive instrument or other possession, doesn't arouse me to purchase likewise".
    --------
    Me either. I think me, you and The G-Man are on the same page. We play what we like and we like what we play.

    I like instruments that play well for me. I don't care what brand or model they are as long as they are easy to play, and play in tune with the tone I want. I don't like to fight an instrument, though, and that's where I draw the line. When one is too much work to play the way I want to play it, it goes on the "for sale" block. The only exception is the Civil War era cornet I play in the reenactment band. It's about the best cornet one could hope for when talking original instruments, so I put up with it and wrestle it every time I play it.

    I did not think Ed and I were arguing, but sharing experience. And as for Harrelson, it's not about plumbing, it's about physics.

    Yeah, it's a study of the see-saw, but not the lever and fulcrum ... I "see" in the present and I "saw" in the past. Too. I perceive the sound wave form, not in the oscilloscope linear but in the ovalum 3rd dimension or spiraling through our brass instruments and apply the Archimedes mathematical principles and ratios vis the ultimate trumpet (or other) is yet to be designed and built. Until then I'll "make do" ... and if not in my remaining life ... alas!

    Gary,
    I respectfully submit that plumbing is physics applied, just like in trumpet building. Of course, there may be more universal appreciation for physics principles associated with plumbing than those associated with trumpet building. I just wanted to flush out any physics misconceptions in this discussion.

    It all depends on what it looks like when Jason bends over to determine if he is a plumber or physicist.

    Hi VB,
    All I know is the last time I took a physic, I was sure glad the plumbing was sound.

    The funny thing, I think Jason said that helping his Dad do some plumbing work is how he learned how to properly solder.

    For the most part, just remember the greater the flow, the bigger the pipe required in plumbing. As for soldering the plumbing pipes here in this very old house, and though I have the equipment and tools to do so, there isn't any metal pipe to solder or thread together. It has all been redone with PEC from the meter at the curb throughout the house with PCV drainage. Nope, not an iron or clay sewer pipe either. (Most localities didn't allow clay pipes for sewage, but doesn't mean they weren't).

    That would be endoscopy.
