I am a high school senior in New York, studying lots of interesting stuff including Comp Sci and music and math. I play the trumpet, flugelhorn, bass, and guitar. I have used Apple gear (Macs, iPhones, and iPods) for years, and have become a cheap IT guy for local small businesses. I have recently started iOS development, see my website for more info!

comment How to remove a rusted or stuck mouthpiece?
I doubt WD-40 would work, as the rust isn't just a source of friction but is acting as a bonding agent.

comment Can I split guitar string gauges?
I can deal with the second issue-for super-heavy stuff, I like the lighter top to cut thru the bass.

comment How many drop tunings can I use with one set of strings?
I already use 11s as my normal strings because I play a lot of metal and like the tight response. Are 11s big enough?

comment Adding French Horn to Trumpet and Flugelhorn?
Don't forget though that Arban focuses more on older trumpet composition. I find that the more contemporary the piece, the more towards 50/50 I end up playing.
