    Holst wrote The Planets in 1913. A Moorside Suite in 1928 - a lot later. And actually, big vibs in Moorside make it sound pretty corny.

    In orchestras:

    I always feel a little sheepish when talk turns to aids to holding bass trombones, as I've been lucky enough never to struggle with this. Perhaps having smallish hands and an embouchure that doesn't...

    Consider also Conn 4H (a bit like 2B), Conn 6H (a bit like a 3B), Conn 24H ("ballroom model" - 4H size, projects very well).

    To be played without vib!

    Would happily do it if weren't half a country away, have done it on a number of occasions, and it's a great part.

    Is a nice solo - but very hard, worth bearing in mind. When I requested ideas here for a show-offy solo for the Yeovil contest a number of years ago, that's the one that was suggested here and that I...

    There's no such thing as an "official test piece", it's all just a matter of convention - if it would work as a contest piece, then it would work, whether or not some might not think of it that way....
