3 rd slide adjustable ring,1st slide trigger, Amado water keys


Recommended Posts

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.

I prefer triggers.  I also like Amado water keys, but lever-style is OK, too.  I especially like the trombone water keys used on Olds trumpets; they work very nicely, as they seem to deposit condensation downward, instead of on your clothes and shoes like regular water keys sometimes do.  This is one of the reasons I like Amados, BTW.  I haven't tried Saturns yet, but I will if I get the chance.

Love those 3rd slide triggers...have them on a few of my horns,(recording/Besson 10/10 /BH international) wish I had one on my early 70's Strad, but got a first slide trigger instead..and hate it...never use it. Don't have or care for Amado style water keys.

I do like first slide thumb rings like the old Kings have.
