Call me biased if you want but I would have to say that Basses are the best. They are the work horses and power house of a band
Having played most of them now, the euph is my favourite because of its sound and importance in the solo lines, the trombone is great fun for its sheer loudness, the horns were great to sit in the harmony of the band, playing Eb bass is good being the bottom end of the sound. Percussion is fun to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.
I would have loved to stay on cornet though.
The only instruments I don't personally like are the baritone, because its too hard to stay in tune (and it hurts my wrist) and the B flat bass, which is far too much effort for my slender frame. Anyone on Bb bass deserves a medal
Whehey! Our monthly 'favourite/best/most important instrument/section' thread!
