    I thought it was funny... but then again I think most things are funny.

    It looks like a tailored shower curtain. So maybe... .:D

    I am in Bob Odneal's college band and he's pretty tight with Doc, so perhaps I can ask. Doc will be in Houston the beginning of May. If I get to meet him, I'll inquire...if I can remember to speak in front of the guy.

    I'm not phased by comments. Not to make a statement or prove my macho abilities (?), but I'm a Marine. The OP is a simple example of ambiguity gone bad.

    Yes I do know how to use a water key and yes when Im playing hard a small drip of water may at times run out of the bell. Its normal for me and a lot of others too I think. Yes I have a sense of humor and no, if I dont have anything nice to say I try to remember to bite my toung. Best wishes .

    I get water out of the bell pretty much every time I practice long enough and don't give a hoot about it. There are enough other things to pay attention to...

    I get water out the bell, and a lot of times have to dump the 3rd valve slide as it has no spit valve on it.

    yep same here. water out of the bell. Someone here even posted how to do that instead of pulling the third valve slide.. pointing the horn up and blowing then pointing it down..and blwing some more.... he said to remove the mouthpiece but I really never needed to do that. I wonder if this happens because of a combination of humidity in the air and the moisture in our lungs...
    so what happens to the giraffe in the bar? :)
