A guy I know went, "(High) C, B" as quarter notes in a song when he was in a pit orchestra, and his second valve slide shot like a rocket as well. He sad from then on, alternate fingerings were it, because he couldn't find the slide!To me it sounds like you are blowing your a$$ off. That may be a good thing. It is for me that is. I have had the best gigs ever when I am blowing spit. Carefull though, the next thing that happens is you start blowing your valve slides off. Just ask Mike Wade, professional trumpeter in Cincinnati. I actually hit him in the foot when my second valve slide shot off my horn when I went from a half valved F# to a complete valve down F#. He said he had been shot at before, but never by another trumpet player.
Saliva production definitely good for teeth; teeth definitely good for trumpet playing.

This is an interesting question because my son plays cornet and I normally play flugelhorn. I have noticed that he forever seems to be draining buckets from his cornet while I get very little in my flugelhorn. I had put it down to his playing style. However last night I was playing his cornet and was amazed at how much water it collected. I couldn't get to a rest before I was gurgling. His cornet is a Rosetti my flugelhorn is a crappy Tristar so would have expected the flugelhorn to be the problematic horn.
Anyone ever heard of a Rossetti cornet? IMHO, Tristar is the better-known brand...
Rosetti is very popular with students. A beginner's instrument definitely but bery popular with schools and junior bands.
Tristar may be better known globally but for all the wrong reasons.
Well, in Europe at least no one I know has ever heard of Rosetti...
I have seen loads of them in the UK. Checked their website and it says they are a UK based destributor so I am guessing that they are known elsewhere by another name either locally branded or by the manufacturer name.
