    Hi

    Just wondering if anybody knows of any makes of trumpet where the second slide is a fixed part of the trumpet? I am sure I have seen these somewhere, and as they are a fixed part of the trumpet, they are a bit lighter.....

    Fixed? No thanks, it would prevent cleaning.

    I haven't seen that on a Bb, just on a Piccolo.

    Have you seen the Wohlrab trumpets? they don't have a second slide at all... don't ask me how that works.

    I remember seeing one of Stumac's collection that had no second valve slide. The extra length of tubing was inside the valve.

    I had a budget trumpet with no first valve slide.

    My Wohlrab has the 2nd loop internal in the piston, the original patent No 2,665,606 shows the design for all 3 loops internal in the pistons. The only one I know of this design is in the collection of Phil's Rugs and Relics.

    Regards, Stuart.

    You can add those stinky little Getzen 391 Eb/D trumpets to the list - the second valve crook is soldered in place. Probably wouldn't fix the intonation anyway.

    Playing that one got rather windy, didn't it?
