I dont think it makes a bit of difference, but thats me! :wink:
Could you explain what you are referring to please! :?
Incidentally, welcome to The Mouthpiece.com
I think she is referring to the finish of a brass instrument. Gold lacquer or silverplate Roger.
Hope so anyway!
Or is this linked to the mouthpiece thread elsewhere?
It could be Christmas Decorations?
It has to be gold for a woman
You're on top form today Neal!!
hehe.. sorry couldn't resist...
now.. before we all degenerate into a mutated thread :? (ahem)
we can assume that it's brass related and continue thereupon!
Well, silver wears better and doesn't bleed!
Gold is warmer in all ways.
Am I going mad or what!!
I'm sure I've just read two posts here from The Cornet King but they've disappeared.
Brass Ornaments and Brass Knockers!!
Roger you are seeing things that are not there!! Well actually they were, i just didnt like them!!!
Gold (lacquered) instrument, silver mouthpiece. But if we're not talking about that, then....
Silver Service and Silver threads (NEVER grey hairs!!!)
Gold jewellery, Gold Christmas ornaments, Gold card, and of course Golden Slippers :lol:
As we are on the topic of Brass how about the beautiful solo:
"Silver threads amongst the gold"
We had our new laquered basses replaced 3 times because of creeping black spot - but I must say that EEbs were "Tinny"and raucous at high volume in the lower register. They were also very easy to "Dint"
They were basically a poorly produced and inadequate instrument.
Eventually about 3 years ago (After we had moaned for months) B&H offered to replace the whole full band laquered set of instruments for silver plate at no expense to us - we bit their hand off !!
The EEbs are much more substantially constructed and are a joy to play - APART FROM - the poor workmanship on the top screw threads of the valves makes it a hell of a job to screw them back on after oiling the valve - ALSO - the plastic valve guides are prone to wear and cause valves to stick on the way up - otherwise - PERFECT !!
Well I thought I would just ask in general if people liked gold or silver better as im doin some coursework and I needed to see if different classes of people, from different areas, would pick the same or different to each other.
I have a gold instrument... but I'm not posh... what does that mean?
Separate names with a comma.
