    Hia everyone!

    My Birthday is in 19 days and I am thinking about getting a rounded main tuning slide for my Yamaha NY artist model. My private teacher has one on his and I tryed it out... It made it easier to jump octives but my sluring exercise thing was all over the place. I dont know if I liked the feel because it was a little jumpy.

    Do you think it would be better to get the rounded and try to adjust to it so I can get the slotting better and have a littler better sound and the other benefits of the rounded tuning slide or just stick with the stock one?

    Thanks
    -Justin

    I think that you should try one for a week (if possible) and then decide.

    You can try one, but please remember anything you do to change a horn will effect other things in the horn.
