“I received the new Tuning Slide in the mail today. When I returned home I immediately blew on the old one and then changed to the new rounded slide. I was very pleased with the ease I found in blowing my trumpet. After trying it for awhile I started playing pianissimo in the higher range and found to my amazement that it was much easier to maintain mp and pp without loosing my clear tones. To say the least, I am very pleased and will update you when we finish the Messiah the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Thanks for your help.”
