    " A Bass trombone is just a trombone......It should sound like a Trombone"

    A long way behind the church organ and electric guitar in my opinion!

    No, no, no, ALL Trombones should be much farther away than that. :cool:

    ROFL!
     
  8. don't say things you can't prove!
    everyone knows its better, it just is
    Reasons:
    • it has an awesome, inspiring, massive sound
    • it is dual action, triggers and slide
    • it looks good
    • it has a massive range (over 4 1/2 octaves, and thats just normal range, excluding super notes)
    • if you don't like it there is obviously something wrong with you
    • it plays TRUE tone (c)
    see no contest, it is just so much better than any other instrument

  9. Trombones are never to loud, without them the band would fall to pieces, and even so it is better to be heard than not at all

    how could you say such a thing, considering you were once a bass trom player yourself (profile)

    One of our Trombone players sometimes conducts the band for rehearsals and it always makes me laugh when he tries to make the rest of the band play pp "so the TROMS CAN BE HEARD ! " do trombonists actually DO quiet ?

    The Bass trom when played correctly has a lovely deep mellow sound,but in the hands of some tone deaf /deaf (self inflicted) individuals it has the most horrible boomy farty noise imaginable !

    • it has an awesome, inspiring, massive sound
    • In the right hands it does, others make it sound thin and nasty
    • it is dual action, triggers and slide
    • Tenor trombones also have triggers, and don't forget all valved instruments also have slides
    • it looks good
    • That's a matter of opinion, so do many other instruments
    • it has a massive range (over 4 1/2 octaves, and thats just normal range, excluding super notes)
    • So do all 4 valved compensating instruments
    • if you don't like it there is obviously something wrong with you
    • Don't give us Bass Trombonists a bad name by coming out with such stupid comments;)
    • it plays TRUE tone (c)
    • So do many other instruments
    see no contest, it is just so much better than any other instrument

    As has been mentioned earlier by another poster- it's still a trombone and should sound like one.
     
  15. your trom conductor obviously knows what he is doing Ha Ha:p ;)
    yes trombones do quiet but theres no point everyones loves to hear the sound of a great trombone

    i completely agree, if played incorrectly it does sound dreadful (wich unfortunately happens rather alot):mad: :dunno :-?

    Dont get me wrong our Trom section is a great bunch of guys ( and a girl ) and we can usually depend on them to supply the banter over to us cornets, its just that they seem to be on a mission to blow themselves and us into oblivion !

    its all good fun though

    i don't aim to give us a bad name, its just most people generally like it, even if it's not their favourite

    bass trombone is still better even if valved instruments squeeze in on top with us

    i give in... valved instruments can be compared but there is just something so different about which just gives it that something special (not deniying that to other instruments)

    it shouldn't really sound like one, it has it's own beautiful tone, quite different to e.g. a tenor trombone but on occasion i agree it is mae to sound the same
