Just watched this intersting twilight zone episode on Sci-Fi. A Passage for Trumpet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I think Jack Klugman's character, Joey Crown, was playing a King Liberty with valve block nipples. Don't know who did the actual playing, but it was a sweet, mellow , plaintive tone to the melodic theme, certainly not what I have heard Liberty's sound like. The character "Gabe" that Joey meets, while"dead" is also playing a trumpet. Not sure what it is, but I could see it had a single brace and abnormally thick valve caps, otherwise a pretty conventional design. Unfortunately, this episode is not available on CBS site to watch anytime.
