There's a thought --
Who here has compared a school-abused sousa with an otherwise identical-but-unsmushed example? Requirements would have to be that both instruments are thoroughly cleaned, valves are aligned, and dents in the small diameter tubing are taken out.
Would a mild amount of creasing help acoustics?
