I'm new here. I started playing the trumpet 37 years ago, gave it up 34 years ago, and just started again a week ago.
I remember as a first trumpet in the school orchestra when I was aged about 10, I was warming up in the pit before a performance, when an incredibly obese tuba player barged through, sending music stands flying and pushing my trumpet and mouthpiece into my lips and splattering them all over my teeth. I think that was the day I leant to swear!
I'm curious to hear what trumpet related injuries other members of this forum have had?
Here's a photoshop I just made depicting a trumpet related injury my neighbours would like to give me as of this week!
