    that's how I got my first Selman off of Ebay. The add stated it as a Selmer and it wasn't and I thought I could make it work for me and it just didn't. Seller wouldn't return the money so lesson learned.

    Re: Flugelhorn repair

    Once upon a time my pops bought me a selman horn. That was long time ago so let me remember.

    Ok it came back to my brain.

    Yeah I still have it and the valves are sworking.

    Most selman has the problem of "valves".

    I gave my selman to my teacher and she or he looked at in and couldn't figure why the valves wouldn't work.

    So I dumped a few bottles of valve oil onto the valves and pushed and pulled them up and down for like an hour. Then I took wd40 and sprayed a whole bunch in.

    I did wash the valves after that because the horn smelled like... ughh

    After a while the Valves started working. Now the valves work alright but the trumpet is still chines crap. I think it is something to do with the metals. I never recommend this horn. Not even for beginners.
    Praise him with the sound of the trumpet - Psalms 150

    “Give, and it shall be given to you. For whatever measure you deal out to others, it will be dealt to you in return.” Luke 6:38

    Selman B♭ trumpet-W46
    Yamaha YTR 2320 B ♭ trumpet-Loud s 93

    If you got an extra yamaha bottom valve cap for a reasonable price, PM me.
