comment Trouble with schilke trumpet valves
Hah! Hah!!! The trumpet was friend's father's college trumpet, and hasn't been played much since then. It came with woodwind bore oil, and I never applied it because I didn't know if it would mess things it. I accidentally applied it a couple of weeks ago and it started working just fine! I think you're completely right!

@Gauthier Well, it turns out if I play the valves from an angle the trumpet is almost playable. Pressing them straight down is significantly worse. Very surprising solution.

@Gauthier Roger. I tried for a minute last night, but I'll give it some serious effort this evening. That would be by far my favorite solution.

@Gauthier Interesting. The trumpet tech also maintained that tehy couldn't make the slides stick, which was weird because it isn't very subtle. Oiling only helps pretty marginally. I am of the opinion that the benefit might just come from taking the slides out and putting them back in. So frustrating.

@Luke How rectifiable is that? And how do you go about proving that that's what is causing the friction?

@NReilingh interesting. They do have a large student rental population.
