As well as playing my Bb trumpet, I am in the process of improving my bugle playing.
I've got a C bugle to which I've added a 7C MP which is about the same as the 11B4 MP on my trumpet and I seem to be making progress.
However, as a bugle novice I have a couple of questions that I've not managed to find the answer to yet, so am hoping TM members may be able to help me.
As with any brass instrument, I assume condensation builds up in the pipe, but as there's no water valve, how does this escape?
When playing outdoors in cold conditions is it a problem or is it just blown through as vapour?
Also, after playing is there any method of laying the instrument down to assist condensate removal.
I was going to ask my trumpet teacher and first wanted to do some research of my own but I've not managed to find any answers yet.
Many thanks in advance.
