    I played one last year. Can't say I approved much.

    Not played the G trom as such, but I did love playing the old G Fanfare trumpet. What a magnificent beast it was. Could be a tad heavy when you had the banners on it and the wind got up though.

    I played a G for the first 6 months or so of my bass trom-playing career. Sounds great playing a march, but wouldn't like to go back to playing one.

    Have an ancient B&H G, quite like it sometimes - confuses the hell out of the tenors at band......

    Can't compare with the Thein, but still nice for a blow occasionally.

    I'm not very old either...

    One of our PhD students is a Rugby player from Hetton-le-Hole - Andy Davis. Think he's about 4 years older than you, though.

    Hmmm, does he wear glasses? I think I may know him.

    Yes, he does. He originally left to go to Birmingham to study Physics.

    Tis a small place, Hetton!
