Practising all day and then waking up with a split lip
Being the only girl in the section
Rowdy 12 year old boys trying to take over the trumpet section
Being totally undermined by the rest of the orchestra while knowing that you’re secretly the best you just don’t want everyone else to get jealous
Anything above a top C
Forgetting your mute
Being the only one to remember a mute
Being section leader/principal and trying (and failing) to control your section
Counting anything over 4 bars of rests and drifting off because you have a terrible attention span
People calling your baritone a tuba
People calling your instrument a different brass instrument
Not being able to use vaseline. Ever.
Having that one responsible prick in the section and not having any fun
Being that one responsible prick in the section and controlling the fun
People laughing when you say your instrument is called a cornet and asking where the ice cream is
Practising for over two hours before a rehearsal and not having enough lip left
Deciding whether or not it’s worth buying a practise mute
Wasting money on a practise mute because they don’t fucking work.

This is a quite interesting rotary trumpet, built by the precursor to Amati-Denak. The instrument is not very ornamented, unlike some instruments of the era, but does have an engraved garland. The instrument was made in Bohemia, meaning that it was either built before 1918 (when Bohemia was absorbed into Czechoslovakia), or between 1938 and 1945, as instruments made during the Nazi occupation were often labeled as being made in Bohemia. However, another rotary trumpet also being sold by this seller is made by the same company in Bohemia, but instead of the ornate garland engraving, is labeled with a plaque, making me think that it is one made during the Nazi occupation. This instrument has some pretty major issues, mainly the cracked metal in the crumpled area in the bell branch near the first valve. It also needs several solder repairs, and some minor dents to be taken out of the bell. However, it does come with the correct mouthpiece for the instrument, which is quite good as there is little on the internet about what mouthpieces should be used with these instruments.
