    Inspired by rowuk, what do you have more of around the house collecting dust ...

    ... more mouthpieces collecting dust,

    ... more method books collecting dust,

    ... more mutes collecting dust,

    ... more trumpets collecting dust,

    ... or more brain cells collecting dust?

    I'll go first --- more method books. Now, if I could just find a copy of "Double High C in 37 Weeks". :D

    EDIT: I added "mutes" to the list after Amzi's insightful reply.

    It must be mouthpieces for me. I gradually sold (1) or gave away (3+) some of them but there are still a few to go (about 3-4), though they don't take up very much room.

    Neither mouthpieces, trumpets nor method books. What was the other one again?

    Been to Colorado lately? ;-)

    I would say trumpets. I do have a lot of mpcs but most are duplicates since Giardinelli is out of business.

    Mutes, Mutes, Mutes--I'm addicted to buying them. I realize that wasn't on the list, but there are currently +/- 20 of them sitting on my desk and I have even more scattered into various cases.
    If I have to choose from the list it would be method books--now if I could just find my old copy of "Double High C in 37 Weeks". I bought it in high school, never completed it and haven't seen it since I went to college.

    Great answer. I should have put mutes on the list.

    Mouthpieces. Even for instruments I no longer own or play. Several for tenor horn for example.

    I have too many excess mouthpieces. I keep them because you never know when you may buy a horn and one of those old "dustables" is just the match for it...;-)

    To many methods books. At this point, many of the books are to complicated for me. Think I will weed out a few this weekend and sell on ebay.
