Just curious about mishaps that people might have had with their trumpets. I've had my fair share, and I've only been playing for 7 years. I'll start with a story...
I had put my trumpet on my lap and was looking through my music when I felt my trumpet begin to slip. Now this has happened before, and I always managed to catch it, but this time no dice. It landed right on the mouthpiece jamming it an extra half centimeter into the trumpet. 20 minutes and two mouthpiece pullers later I was finally able to get the thing out, but it took a bit of effort. Luckily neither the trumpet nor the mouthpiece was damaged, and I only have a small line on my mouthpiece to show for it.
I know everyone has had something like this happen to them. Let's hear the stories!
