    I've just bought a new B&S Challenger II trumpet. Can I use it in the orchestra/big band at once or are there some exercises and other "tricks" that people should do with new instruments? What do you think? (I suppose everybody got different methods about this question.)

    Regards,
    Matt

    P.S.: I'm sorry if there is a topic with the same thing. I haven't found it.

    Clean and oil the valves everyday. Particles may still be floating around as the valves wear in.

    Clean and oil the valves and go play your new horn.
