Aren't Chinese trumpets already "pre-wired" for table lamp use?

Saw off or immobilize the valves. The edges of the holes are sharp and can cut through the insulation if somebody pushes the valves down. 110V then travels through the brass.................... Make sure that the horn is grounded. I'd hate to see some joker get his chops fried!
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
Robin's idea is a good one. Fill the space underneath with pennies or epoxy if you can't get the caps off.
Instructions for working inside computers often refer to grounding yourself, but almost never tell you to unplug the power cord. Oh well, there are too many of us on the earth as it is.
excellent ideas guys!!
very good point robin, that is probably what i will wind up doing.
does anyone remember me talking about my youngest brother's trumpet? the wal mart Simba that my parents bought him in 2006 that they snuck under my radar? well because of my influence they're getting him a "worthy" student horn for xmas, maybe i'll use the simba... it seriously looks more "antiqued" than my '56 ambassador.
we'll see how this project works out, then i'll start taking orders
