    Currently I just play in a church band. I play my Alto/Tenor Horn, which is a bit of a rarety here in the USA. People always ask what the heck that is I,m playing. Makes it kind fun.

    EEb bass. In my opinion, best instrument in the band.

    I mainly play BBb bass, with the occasional fill-in on EEb, euphonium or horn when the need arises.

    Nowadays Baritone, but thats because I had 10 years away and the band I joined already had 2 Euphs (preferred instrument). Going back a bit, I spent the first 20 years of banding on Cornet

    Solo Baritone - The best seat by far! :)
    It gets the mix of Solo Cornet & Flugel, "beefs" up the Horns and brightens the Euphs -
    You'd miss us if we weren't there...

    I get to stand at the front and wave my arms around like a demented windmill. If I had an instrument I would be dangerous.

    Take your pick, I'll (attempt) to play anything that needs covering in the band at the time! Have done sop to BBb at one time or another, excluding bass trom as its in the wrong cleff!!!

    no it's in the right clef, it's all the others that are wrong :)

    p.s. have played everything from Bb cornet to BBb bass + kit at one time or other - settled on bass trom

    None of that brass band stuff for me anymore - do play EEb Sousaphone now and again though in formations of 2,3,4 0r very occasionally more, been mainly a 2 piece this last 12 months - though with keyboard & drums backing.

    Depending on who is missing for concerts in my band or if I am helping out with other bands, I play what ever is needed.
