    Are buying a Getzen Renaissance trumpet with tight springs, I noticed how loose the springs were on my cornet. So today I received new springs from ebay. After installing them, the action on the finger buttons were much faster. What an inexpensive fix.

    Glad that you had the slide fixed. Surprisingly how some shops personnel acts.

    Thanks for the info and advice. Took the trumpet to Osmun Music and they fixed it right up. No “metal fatigue” after all, just a misaligned 3rd slide that I guess the first shop couldn’t or didn’t want to fix. Very happy with Osmun!

    So how is your Thomas Crown mute blending in your community band?

    Play a Mutec Wah Wah mute. Happy with the sound.

    I have found when playing in jazz/big bands, it is nice to have others in the same section to use the same/similar mutes. In our section we all use Tom Crown straight mutes, and Humes/Berg cup mutes. It's nice to hear a similar "straight mute" sound across the section - and using the same/similar (copper bottom vs. brass bottom on a Tom Crown) mute is nice. Hope that helps!
