    Blue Juice?

    I switched between Al Cass and blue juice had the same issues. Now I only use the synthetic valve oils. Either monster or la tromba 1 valve oils. Like the twin packs with free shipping.

    Blue Juice?

    Blue Juice , I believe is a synthetic oil. Which doesn't mix well with Al Cass oil. If changing to a synthetic oil, give your trumpet a through bath with Dawn dish detergent. Also use isopropyl alcohol to clean the valves and the inside of the valve block. Synthetic valve oils like Monster oil, La Tromba T 2, Ultrapure are all compatiable.
  3. I misread the small print numbers it was 280, instead of 200. Interesting they are allowing fake Bach Strads to be sold on ebay.
  4. Today was the last day I was selling this trumpet on ebay . The current bid was $12.00 dollars plus shipping. Then my listing was pulled ; Your listing has been removed: Trademark Violation - Unauthorized Item. After reviewing your eBay account, we've taken the following action: - Listings have been removed.Your listing or product was removed after the rights owner reported it as counterfeit. We urge you to contact the rights owner directly for more information about why they requested the removal of your listing or product and whether you can sell the item. Strange some would counterfeit this brand. Understand if it was a Bachor Yamaha.
  5. After practicing today I experienced an unusual feeling of contentment about my choices of trumpet and cornet. In my six years of playing trumpet , I was never happy with my selection of trumpets. The previous Getzen 590 trumpet was close but not quite right. Cornets seem to suit me better. Was happy with the sounds of many of the previous cornets I have owed. Anyone experience a similiar situation?
  6. Did the repair shop, attempt to sell you a replacement slide? Go to another repair shop.

  8. When I buy my next trumpet or cornet, I will consider a 3rd slide trigger.
  9. Bought a Denis Bach 2 W trumpet mouthpiece from ebay. Any thoughts or experience with this mouthpiece? Kept the Vincent Bach 1 1/2 C mouthpiece. Think the Denis Wick 2 W will sound good on Getzen 700 trumpet. Previously owed and sold a 2 W mouthpieces. Decided to sell all of my remaining trumpet mouthpieces. Surprising the Denis Wick 3 mouthpiece doesn't suit the sound I want on this trumpet.
  10. I wish I had your patience. If I don't like a mouthpiece immediately, I sell it.
  11. Haven't played any of the Jupiter professional trumpets. Bought a student level Jupiter Shepherd' s crook cornet. It was a well built and designed cornet. It just didn't sound right to me. There was been excellent reviews on the Jupiter professional trumpet. https://www.cmuse.org/best-professional-trumpet/ Discussion on one of the other trumpet blogs. https://www.trumpetherald.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=141850&highlight=jupiter
  12. Am I the only one that doesn't like a 3rd slide adjustable ring , 1st slide trigger, or Amado water keys? Probably not important, but I strongly like the 1st slide thumb saddle, 3rd slide fixed ring and traditional water keys.
