    Below are 12 brass bands or brass ensembles. When all solved the initial letters, when unravelled will reveal the name of a little known French brass ensemble, consisting of two words (7 letters and 5 letters), the first of which should be familiar to all performing musicians and the second should be particularly familiar to brass players! Those marked with an asterisk are brass ensembles, the others are brass bands. Some of the bands aren't 'world famous' but can all be found in the 4barsrest ranking table, all taken from the top 60.

    Please PM your answers to me. Ta.

    X-Ray snobs (4,5)*

    As you will see I have amended the 6th anagram as I 'anagrammed' one letter too few in my original version. Said anagram now reads

    Sad kid traces bogs (4, 12)
