    Moomindave, though we haven't heard a lot of him lately. The boy talks a lot of sense and knows his onions.

    I would like to second this - Dave gives us his insight too, not just what he's read on the web or in a book. I would incloude Duncan as a similar candidate.

    bass trumpet (Duncan Willson)

    Philip Sparke (anglomusicpress) doesn't post very often, so maybe he doesn't give the "most" info. But when he posts, it is usually very insigthfull

    Not quite sure how I come into this (I've obviously got a lot of people fooled!) - but for me it's got to be brassneck. A true fount of well-thought-out knowledge and enthusiasm... No-one else comes close.

    If this was an award for the person who performed the most searches on the internet on behalf of the lazy people on here who don't know the meaning of the word search before they ask, then yes, Brassneck does win hands down. (and this is NOT to decry any other posts he makes btw - he is a valued contributor so no flames thank you!).

    I only use search results to back up any information given. It would be less work if people searched using Google initially. ;)
