    My Schilke B6 has a copper bell, and it has never seemed like it is in any danger of bending or warping. I used to worry that I would put a dent in the bell by clipping my clip-on Shure Beta 98 mic in the same place, and after 10 years, I do have a worn spot on the plating there, but no dent. It's softer than brass alloys, but not so much that the weight of the horn is going to cause it to warp while sitting there.

    So many questions here. Who's this Leslie girl, what do beets have to do with anything, is anyone else getting hungry for a ham sandwich?

    Leslie is a fabulous speaker with a spinning horn. A plumber was out working on my lower level remodeling and saw the Leslie. He said Leslies are all the rage now for guitar players. He said he saw one in a music store and was told they are selling them for $35,000! I tried to correct him and said you mean $3,500 and he said no, $35,000. That Leslie is one high price item!

    No, the stand will not warp the bell if there is no additional force applied. I generally leave my horns in the case - they do not dry out as fast and a "moist" horn plays far easier than a bone dry one.

    There are cases out there that work even if the lid is not shut. I have a big Reunion Blues double trumpet bag that works just fine as does the Monette double hard case. Here is a view from the top of that bag:

    The rage now? In Holland the quite international famous guitarist Jan Akkerman (Focus) played always via a leslie box already in 1969 (probably earlier but I met him in 1969).

    Here is another Leslie. It's a Leslie 60 attached to a Fender Rhodes piano escorted by an Ambassador trumpet (on a stand)

    I noticed that about 10 years ago, after a long stint of inactivity with the Civil War band. I don't play that old rotary valve cornet if I don't have to, so it had a couple months to dry out. The instrument lost a lot of its responsiveness and the tone was more brittle. After playing it a while, it was back to its old familiar self.
