Saving up for a Flugel.
Gadgets. I am a sucker for gadgets. I've got multiple Warburton Pete's, which I use. I've got an APE, a power lung, various other breathing apparatuses. Other gadgets based on the pencil exercise, practice valve blocks, finger exercisers. Basically if you've seen an ad for a trumpet gadget, I probably have it. Most of them are covered in dust in a drawer.
Bach Stradivarius 43* (1974), Bach 3C Mouthpiece.
Getzen 896 Eterna Flugelhorn (1974), Curry 3FL Mouthpiece.
Plus a few other Bach, Getzen, Olds, Carol, and Besson horns.
None of the above. I use everything to excess, Method books, trumpets, mutes, valve oil, yep-even brain cells. I rotate all my horns and materials on a daily basis so I can cover them all. I am compulsive about doing this. So do you think I have a compulsive medical disorder, Dr. TrumpetMD.
The closest I ever came to having a dustable was my Martin 10 mouthpiece. It was sitting on a shelf for a couple years until I bought my Pocket Trumpet. As it turns out, that Martin 10 makes the Pocket Trumpet sing. So the Martin 10 is no longer a paper weight, and is now a part of my weekly cycle. And to think, I almost gave it away to a TM member in Canada, Eh!
Too many of: that list is too short. But the good news is that I have almost convinced my better half that I have carpet savers in place. You don't need to vacuum and clean the carpet, if that space is taken up with....
I did say - almost.
Why do I like a bell that Points UP ?
- because the spit does not run back into my mouth!
Wick 4AL piece. Briefly seemed a good idea until the discovery that the receiver of the Holton bass will only accept a medium trombone shank. Plugged and stuck in the ground, it makes a pretty good birdbath.
Holton bass. This time last year, it was singing sweetly. Since the embouchure change, not one single note. You win some, you lose some.

My 4 dust able horns are on eBay right now.
Method books are the #1.
I refuse to buy anymore. Until I can play all I have (which will be never).
