My trumpet that I found yesterday just broke a little bit. The picture show where it has come apart. How should I fix it? Use solder? Glue? Tape? It's not some super fancy expensive trumpet/ family heirloom so it doesn't really matter if something terrible happens to it.
Thanks in advance

You need to solder it back together. I bought my current trumpet used, and it's been re-soldered in the same place you say yours is broken. It's fine.

I might add that (from what I can tell) it's just the fixing which is broken, so it shouldn't affect the way it plays at all. You just have to be careful - if that bit isn't fixed properly then there's more chance that the first section of tubing will bend if you drop it or something.

it depends how it's broken. unless you show us a picture of the break, it might be hard to help. just showing a picture of the general area does not help very much.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

It's not necessarily broken, it's more separated.

The trumpet i borrowed in 4th grade had that problem but it wasn't as far away from it.
I used JB Weld, but take it to a music shop see how much theyll charge for a good solder job.
If it's over $10, then just buy a soldering iron at autozone and some $2 solder and get at it

Refer to my other post. All it needs is soldering back together.

Duct tape. It solves most problems.

Edit: JB weld will definately hold it back together, like Skarface said. You need to prepare it well though by cleaning/sanding where it needs to be put on.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

I'll solder your mouthpiece to my trumpet in a minute, sunshine.

The mouthpiece and the valves need to be soldered the most.

Cheap family heirloom? That's a Royal Banquet trumpet, from what looks to be about 1972, those are worth about $42,000. So yes TS, you really ****ed up.

Also, I work in a music store and see that problem all the time.

Although you took your little 20 dollar problem and totaled the trumpet, well played sir.

Also, where the heck are the slides/valves?

I took it apart to clean it, it was horribly dirty. I highly doubt that I totaled it. And to everybody: I started to solder everything back, but it was really old solder and wasn't working to well. Picking up more tomorrow. Got one piece back on though. This should work out in the end. Worst case scenario Ill just duct tape it- ghetto trumpet

Just melt it down and make a metal mold of your ass. Then carry it around with you so when you argue with people you can pull it out and tell them to kiss your cold hard ass.

Well... it's been sitting in my garage since the 4th grade. The constant dampness and being thrown around may have had something to do with it. Oh yeah, moldy trumpet cases are disgusting.
