Not sure if this was in reference to me ... the two hours I mentioned are my practice sessions. If this wasn't in reference to me, apologies.

Perhaps it was in reference to me? I usually play as people are arriving, up until the casket is brought in, then again as it's brought out and placed in the hearse, then again at the cemetery as people gather and at the end, after the commendation and dismissal. If a client asked for just a tune or two as teh casket is brought in and out and a couple at the cemetery, I'd be happy to oblige.

But to bring us back on topic, I have been playing with just the moose valve in for a while since posting the original question, all seasons, though I do keep a spare bag and stocks set up with the Naill tube and a blowpipe with a Li'l Mac, just in case of a bag emergency.

Hi all,


I have had a moose valve with nothing else going on 10 years, 5 years in a gortex bag and 3 with WMC bag and I don't bother to even look in the bag anymore. The only catch is it's dessert her and between 30 summer and 60 winter. Alll I have done is taken it out for cleaning a couple of times! i do play some long session and just lay it down between sets with the blow pipe pointed down to drain!
