  1. 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!
  2. A local repair shop told me they couldn’t fix a stiff third tuning slide on a 1977 Bach Stradivarius bc the horn had metal fatigue. I’ve never heard of metal fatigue in a trumpet. Thoughts?
  3. My son’s 1977 Bach Strad has a stiff 3rd tuning slide, and our local repair shop told us they can’t fix it bc the trumpet has metal fatigue. I’m not an experienced brass person. Is “metal fatigue” a legit occurrence in vintage trumpets?
