    Best Tuba Player?

    The best I have heard has to be John Fletcher. In the SA banding world at the moment I don't think there are many if any that are better than Paul Drury. He is a great section leader as well as being fine soloist.

    I am a Salvationist and a member of our corps band at Edinburgh Gorgie. A few of the people who play in the band have played in or are currently playing in non SA bands.

    What BRAND of mouthpiece do you play?

    I can confirm that gorgieboy's mouthpiece is manky! He forgot to tell you that he uses a Bach 1 1/2 C when playing soprano.

    Salvation Army Bands

    I too have found this to be a very interesting thread. The postings from some of the former SA bandsmen have been both encouraging and challenging. As a SA BM I find myself constantly questioning what is the function of SA bands and are they as relevant today as they have been throughout...

    Favourite Hymn Tune?

    One of my favourites is "On Jordans Banks". It's a good marching tune. Good arrangement of this has been done by Gorgie Boy - recently recorded by Fuoco Brass.
