    I have a Prestige cornet that is driving me mad at the moment. It's one of the original models that has the first attempt at the main tuning slide trigger.

    The problem I have is that I can only get the main slide to come out just over a centimetre because when I turn the brass barrel that separates the threaded pins it has very little give and comes apart when I try and move my slide out. The net affect of this is that I'm having to trigger everything I play - not ideal.

    I can't help but think I'm doing something wrong in how I'm setting the trigger up because it can't possibly only have that amount of give. So advice on the set up would be appreciated.

    If this is indeed the "design intent" is it possible to buy the upgraded mechanism for the older model? If so, where?

    Any advice much appreciated.
