"Don't pull the instrument a long way down and then let go:-)"

Especially if it's a cor anglais - they can do some serious damage. I have an elastic sling I sometimes use if I'm playing cor for long periods, and I'm sure it'll do plenty of damage (to brass players) if stretched and let go. But I'm not going to sacrifice a cor anglais for the sake of putting an end to an egotistical trumpet player's career.

"The only slightly tricky bit is that the LH thumb can wind up rather close to the elastic."

This is also why I don't get on with slings on clarinet or soprano sax.

Chris.
