    Do you have a 10 piece Brass Group ?
    If so what is you line-up and what instrumentation do you prefer/need ?

    I assume that most line-ups (non-orchestral) will be:-
    4 x Cornets (perhaps doubling) - but how many parts ? 3 ?
    1 x Horn
    2 x Trombones
    1 x Euphomium
    1 x EEb Bass
    1 x Percussion

    I've done some before but its been:

    3 Cornets
    1 Flugel
    1 Horn
    1 Bari
    1 Trombone
    1 Euph
    1 Eb Tuba
    1 Perc

    I'm not sure if thats standard ?
  3. In our group we use;
    Eb Cornet
    3 Bb's divded
    2 Tenors

    When i've been playing in a brass band 10 piece its normally been:
    3 cornets
    Bass Trombone
    Eb Bass

    Having said thats these types of group are normally very flexible and you can adjust instrumentation to suite repertoire. So maybe an extra trombone for the baritone etc.

    I play in a 10 piece group with some woodwind included. Its a recent thing for me but I must admit (as a hard and fast bander) but it gives a very different and almost velvety balance. I enjoy it.
    2 trumpets/cornets
    2 clarinette
    1 alto sax (Although one of the clarinettes doubles on alto sax depending on the piece)
    1 bass sax
    1 e flat tuba
    1 tenor trom
    1 bass trom
    1 drummer/perc

    I love these jobs, i really do, but i feel like I've been musically raped after!!! (Big, fat, knackered lips. I get paid though)
    It's good to do something different with a really HUGE catalogue of music.
