    LB refers to "Long & Beautiful" when it comes to jeans, ML to "Maiden Like," right guys?

    I wonder what Alex Yates would have commented on that if she was still around...I kind of miss her posts.

    I got my answer last night, just before I finished my practice session. Question, anybody know how to "un-stick" a straight mute? I tried using a mirror, but I can't seem to find the end of the mute :)

    That's interesting, because I have a '60 Conn 6B Victor trumpet with a very small .438 bore and a really big bell (think Connstellation) and it does have a nice, dark sound. Most of my horns would be classed as ML bore (although I have a Conn 5A cornet with a .485 bore!), but I don't really pay attention to bore size when I'm looking at horns. It really just boils down to how they work for me. The two bore extremes I've listed - .438 and .485 - blow similarly to all my other horns. If the horn's built right, bore size doesn't matter.
