    Not one for ducking the really important issues, I often ponder this question. Usually in the middle of a concert or a contest.

    I used to always have the mousey light brown ones but since I discovered red felts, my life has been improved no end.

    Which colour do you use?

    Are there any other burning question out there we need to get off our chests?

    I've got creamy white ones on my trumpet and my cornet.

    I used to have green ones on my trumpet, but they weren't very good.

    I would really like bright pink fluffy ones most days but when having a quick mood change as sometimes occurs I would like sets of various colours coded for each emotion. Beware if the felts are dark purple with red flashes.

    What's wrong with Cork?

    Or are you too young to remember those clanking sounds of the olden days?

    Chunky and Pav swear by the nice pink ones, I prefer blue but if they notice they wont talk to me!

    Dear Mr Jancsi!

    How wrong you are, we actually use polo mints, its what the hole was designed for plus its much nicer inhaling valve oil with a hint of mint!

    Two words for you Allegro Giocoso!

    Can I join in the fun? My rarely played euphonium used to have white felts, but 15 years down the line, they're a sort-of dark grey colour!

    This is a serious issue Beesa has brought up here and I applaud them for doing so.:clap:

    Felts? I've never been in a band that's had enough sposnorship to be able to afford felts.

    And if you tell that to the youngsters of today.....

    It always bothers me what colour folders people use at band, and what type, theres so many to choose from, cardboard, lever arch...etc etc

    We use Lever arch and the front row has two black ones and one pink one (especially for Richard), I feel thats the best mix really although I realise I am not really qualified to comment on that important matter

    Am i allowed to answer?

    Not being a repair agent for a top musical instrument manufacturer, (or any manufacturer at all for that matter!) i know my opinion will count for absolutely nothing (especially if jonP is reading!) but what the heck!!!!:wink:

    i have white ones on my sop (courtois) and I've just bought some lovely green ones for my olds ambassador cornet, which I'm about to dig out of the cupboard and give a good going over.
    was seriously going to give the sop a bit of a pimping up but cant afford it at the mo:(

    Nevermind pink ones, I want red ones! But I've never had the choice.... perhaps it's because I live in Devon and only white or green make their way down here!

    Darn! I thought that might be the case. Maybe one of our seasoned 'top' banders could enlighten me!

    Oh stuff the consequences!!!!

    we have lovely yellow cardboard ones with our current music in, and horrid horrid red plastic ones with our Christmas stuff in.

    leisa, i would have thought the pink folder would be yours. i bet it matches "the pink" hat wonderfully!!! (ah the good ol' days of tMP!!):wink:
