Are you describing something like a leather hand-grip? Those are used to keep the laquer from wearing off because of direct contact by your skin and sweat and whatnot. If that's not what you are talking about, could it be one of those Christian Lindberg inventions that keeps your tone from breaking at loud dynamics? I'm not exactly sure what you are thinking about.

There are leather neck covers for the trombone that keep perspiration away from your clear finish.  Your perspiration eats away at the finish then attacks the metal, wearing away the metal until it gets thin.  And the holder I have from Leather Specialties has a pencil holder sewn on.  I find the leather comfortable and it didn't discolor my collar.  On some people it may discolor.

Some people just use black electrical tape.  Others use the coiled cord from a telephone (again, black).  I never saw the point to either.

Jeff Rinear has bicycle tape on the neckpipe of his 100H that I saw.  I recall him saying that the brass, after a while, would stain his shirt under stage lighting.

If he's playing a 100H, then what is he doing on the Edwards website........

Chill out, Bean. Just 'cos the guy owns a 100H, doesn't mean he has been performing on it recently. Ths could have been a pre-Edwards performance long ago. As far as I know, just because a player is endorsed by Edwards, doesn't mean he can't own other horns...
