Whilst at the Midland Area this year looking around the trade stands, I could help but chuckle at some of the most pointless musical equipment there is on show and there are people who actually buy them. (Please prove me wrong if I don't know what I'm talking about !!) I came across and lip balm especially formulated for musicians because obviously the stuff you get at boots are no good for musicians!!?? Cornet stands, ok if you play in a jazz band and you have a trumpet of something else, but I've seen 3rd row cornet players resting there cornets on them at some band rehearsals. Is it really heavy work putting a cornet on your knee?? Are we a group of idots who havenothing else better to spend our hard earn cash on these marketed pointless gimicks??
