Good to see Cottingham still working hard.
Just like to say thanks for including me in the ex players section, I have fond memories of my time with Cottingham and it is good to see the band continuing and being supportive of other bands in the area too.
Keep up the good work!
Well I think the xeno is going to have to go some way to matching up to my beloved schilke. I play on a Bach 7E mouthpiece and have not really had any noticable tuning problems, none that a good ear can't sort out.
The Xeno is going to be cheaper that the Schile though, the book price on mine...
In the Champ section bands defence I would like to state that we had two weeks after the Christmas break to rehearse St Magnus and construct an entertainment programme. Time for some bands is short and therefore something has to give. To me the quality of the music will always be the most...
'Congrats to Redbridge for a solid second day again...nice to see them represent London so well (just like Nationals)

Personally, I think you are going to find that difficult in the current situation with percussionists in the area.
We have a rank of first class percussionists who join us for contests and contests, but we would like to build up a full-time section and this is proving more difficult. We...
Aww thanks mate,
Just to let you know the cornet vacancy has now been filled but we are still looking for a percussionist!
So calling all drummers, we have just had £10K worth of new kit for you to have a good bash on.
So give us a ring and check us out.
The Carlton Main Frickley Colliery Band under the direction of Brian Grant are currently on the search for a good quality cornet player to compliment the front row and a kit percussion player.
We are a very friendly bunch who rehearse on Mon and Thurs in South Elmsall nr Doncaster.
We have a...
Yes I'd love to know too.
I loved the Xeno trumpet, was a very nice instrument but have never rated Yamaha's on the whole (bang goes my endorsement deal he he)
Will be interesting to see if this is as good as Schilkie or Courtois?
