I think what is meant is the 'female' portion of the slide mechanism - not a particular location on the instrument. Some brands have a different type of metal on the inner part (the 'male' part) than on the outer part.
One tube might be regular brass, and the other part nickel-silver.

The 'next note' is the most important one.
Don't take a '20 minute mouthpiece' to a 1 hour session.

Thanks and sorry for the late reply.

About the materials, does nickel-silver contains silver ? despite it's name, I read that it doesn't contain silver.

---------------------
Nickel-silver (also sometimes called German Silver) does not typically contain actual silver. It is called that because it has a 'silver appearance'.

"Nickel silver, a range of alloys of copper, nickel, and zinc which are silvery in appearance but contain no silver. Its composition varies from 7 to 30 percent nickel, the alloy most widely used being called '18 percent nickel silver'
(18 percent nickel, 62 percent copper, 20 percent zinc)."
