    The new Yamaha's come with a trigger standard. I don't have one on either of my horns, but I've been considering having one put on my Yamaha, and maybe on my Couesnon. It would probably be about $100 from a competent repairman, for parts and installation.

    Last trigger I had installed it cost me the price of the trigger. My tech was happy to do the work as it was a nice break from the normal repairs he was doing.

    Josh Landress added a trigger to my Yamaha, I don't remember the cost but it was way less than $100.

    Just had one put on my Couesnon... $230 with Ultrasonic cleaning. If you get one be sure to have a water key installed if the slide doesn't already have one!

    I bought my cornet with triggers but i heard it is hard to empty the water out of the first valve slide but that has not really bothered me.

    The Couesnon's have a very tight 3rd slide, usually making a little more work for the tech

    Re: Flugel Trigger

    I personally would consider having a trigger installed relatively minor "surgery". I had a saddle installed on my 1st slide back in HS, but to this day it doesn't work all that well.

    Now...here's the real question... Would anyone consider having horizontal slides changed to vertical slides?! I would consider that "major surgery". I've been contemplating that for quite a few years actually.

    Re: Flugel Trigger

    Can it be done without damaging the finish on the slide ?

    Most likely not. Mine is lacquered so that would be a complete relacquer job. Although I could just strip it all off & go with the raw look. My C trumpet is raw & I kinda like it that way.
