So we got a little bit of money for the band I teach £5000 to be exact to put towards new instruments, we are an amateur band with a handful of players of quality, the majority are young but we will be decent. They had been playing on 700 series cornets etc, which were the best instruments in the band... Anyway we spent approx £6800 on the following: 3 x Besson Sovereign Bb Cornets 928-2 (The Buffet Crampon ones) £3700 I wanted to get the Xenos but we had our hands tied on this! Is there a difference in quality? 1 x Yamaha YFL-6315 Flugel Horn £945 I think this may actually be a 631S or a 631G, the writing wasnt great! Is there much of a difference in these 1 x Yamaha YSL-620 Bb/F Tenor Trombone £1190 We were told that this is commonly used as a Bass Trombone, or were we sold a pup on this one?! Can it be used as a Bass Trombone? Its also laquer finished I think 1 x Yamaha YSL-445 Bb Tenor Trombone £569 1 x Pearl Drumkit (5 piece) £461 Total £6865 I wasnt all that keen on getting Sovereign Cornets, Ive heard the pervious version of them were very hit & miss, but maybe this has been fixed. I wanted to get the best possible flugel that we could get, because they have poor intonation with cheaper models (or so ive been told) Part of me wishes that we had gone for Virtuosi. We got an intermediate Tenor Horn for one of the kids and were very impressed with it, and I know a guy who has the pro cornet and he was very happy with his, and they only cost £599! 6 Pro Virtuosi cornets or 3 sovereigns... hmmm! Seemingly they also have a Pro Bass Trombone for only £450!! Surely something doesnt add up there? has anyone any experience of the Virtuosi Bass Trombone Thanks for any help!
