I have been amused by the discussion of the thickness or thinness of
material in brass instruments. I have discussed this subject with the
husband of my kids' clarinet teacher (which, of course, makes him a man of
wise judgment and good taste) who is a professional trumpet player. He has
described instruments so thin you could dent them by putting in a mute and
others so heavy you could hardly lift them. He had a good word to describe
them: "fads".
