Dont know if this belongs in "rehersal room" but still... Driffield Silver Band had a mass clean out last night and found (amongst other things) 2 G Trombones (complete with extender slides) in perfect condition, along with 6 cornets - some "Solbron" and some that are so old that they are manufactured by "Hawkes and Son" (pre boosey) - all in high pitch i think... They are all in perfect nick and some of the engraving needs to be seen to be believed... QUESTION - what are these things worth, are they of any use to a brass band (is there for example a solo for G Trom and Brass Band???) Best thing we found was the Bass Drum manufactured for the Nafferton Silver Band (which went defunct around the turn of the last century and became Driffield Silver) (its out 175th Anniversary this year) - we have seen the Drum in a number of photos going back to the turn of the last century, but never found it - was at an elderly member of the bands house who sadly passed away... Would not like to try marching with it - its nearly as big as an orchestral bass drum... made out of wood. Weighs stacks!!!!!! What do other bands do with old instruments like this??? There are the options of selling the instruments, but its heritage as well isnt it???
