Mrs. and I are traveling this weekend. I travel light. My trumpeting travel kit consists of: old beat up Blessing Standard Bb trumpet; old Blessing #13 mouthpiece; FAXX compact practice mute; valve oil (kind doesn't matter, the old Blessing works with them all); MicroFiber cloth; cleaning rag. All of this is stuffed in a sturdy old H&B Tuxedo gig bag. Exercises and music are in a 1" three-ring binder that travels in the laptop case. Stands are improvised in hotel rooms. Here's wishing U.S. members a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
