It's the bugle. It has a loose brace. I have to run my horn to the repair shop tomorrow, so I thought I may as well get the bugle done at the same time. I had thought to just take the cornet out of the gig bag and put the bugle in it. That won't work since my son's going to take the cornet to band. Unless... I have the cornet case, but it's stinky- really, really stinky. So stinky that I've kept it in the shed and garage for years. (It was too stinky for my house.) I really don't want to make my son use it, especially for his first week at band. Can I drop off the bugle at the shop without a case? Or is there some other brilliant thing I can do?
