As a former trumpet player, I'd have to disagree. By nature, reed players tend to be more equipment savvy than brass player since their instruments are much more complex. Sure, I knew what was needed to know about mouthpieces and different horns, but there just isn't the same amount of information one needs to know. There are so many different things to worry about. One of the reasons why I had quit clarinet for a while was because I was going nuts over reeds, mouthpieces, pads, springs, etc. Trumpet maintenance? Make sure you wash it regularly and try to keep it dent free. On the other hand, I sometimes spend several hours on a reed. There was nothing that took up so much time in terms of the trumpet.
