    How about a perfect pitch trumpet?

    This was built Andy Taylor as a commission for a collector in Japan. This instrument is nearly seven inches shorter than a regular Bb trumpet.
    Not only is it of compact dimensions, but it has an unusual feature for any Bb trumpet. It has a slide operated by the thumb of the left hand that can de-tune any note by up to a semitone. This enables the player to bend any note at will.

    Not me!! I'm always tending too sharp.

    but you valve for each position (seven in all including open). Of course, it still wouldn't work...but for whatever reason I found some twisted humor in it.....
