1969 Conn 38B Connstellation Bb Trumpet
I was playing once and afterwards, a little boy approached me and stated that he played the trumpet. I asked, "Do you play like I do?" and he replied, "I used to."
I also like hamilton stands. They are sturdy and adjustable to each horn. i use color coded elecrrical tape so that each stand corresponds to each horn for security. Additionally, i cover the parts that contact my horns with the bags that come with Crown Royal bottles. here in Virginia the state run stores have a supply available for free. Bars don't want the bags so extras are available in the back of the store. I turn them inside out to avoid corrupting young students or scratching the finish with embroidery.

So this may be a little off topic, but are there any quick cleanings you can do to a horn if your sick one day but don't have the time to clean it the next?
I use them and they seem to work. Follow the directions!
Suspect others here like or dislike them and will tell you why?
the spitballs do work ok, but be careful to make sure you keep your valve all the way down when you shoot one through. If you don't, it could get stuck and then you loose the initial momentum and can't force it through. I've only seen this happen once though and it was my friend's first time using one. You have to put it in the leadpipe and push it in pas the mouthpiece receiver with a plastic pen. Not bad for clearing out some gunk.
