REASON TO GET ONE:
Use as a warm-up like Bill Adam did.
Opens up and improves your sound.
.495 super large bore to build wind power and make your trumpet easier to blow by contrast.
Stop getting the slide grease on your pants, hands, etc..when you pull the tuning slide out to buzz. That will be a thing of the past with these individual pipes.
Less work buzzing these light brass pipes compared to holding the entire horn.
Mobile - Take in your car, office, OR take it on a hike, walk, or bike ride.
Kids or Grandkids playing too loud? Just whip out this leadpipe and the rest will take care of itself!
Can control position and head angle better than with the leadpipe attached to the horn.
Priced right! Unlike almost all other lead-pipes including custom pipes which start at $200, this one will do the trick and still leave your wallet intact!
If you haven't heard of Bill Adam, that's ok. The short version: He was a well-known Trumpet professor at Indiana University and at the time by the late 1980's, Indiana boasted the largest enrollment of Music Majors of all colleges and universities.
Bill had many approaches and philosophies regarding trumpet playing. (at least as far as I could tell).
One approach that seemed to be mainstream and a constant with him was....LEADPIPE BUZZING!
Bill Adam declared it opened up player's sound. Improved pitch center, resonance, flexibility, range and was one of the best ways to start the day using it as a warm-up!
