Purchased new about 5 or 6 years ago but has only had very light use in the last 4 years. I think the model number is YSL 8820 Bb/F Xeno but I can't find the original paperwork and the bell just says Xeno.
Good condition, blows very nicely, slide action is fine, there is minor cosmetic wear...
I posted some clips of Cory from this series in about 1982 to youtube recently, here's one of the links:
This was salvaged from an old Betamax tape. I also have a tape of SunLife vs Carlton Main, 1983 final, which I will get around to posting soon.
If you search youtube there are a few other...
Yes, but 4BR, and, for that matter, other online pundits, are giving THEIR opinions on how THEY would call the results having listened to the bands, and for me that provides an interesting alternative perspective on the contest apart from the one produced from 'the box'.
How do you draw this conclusion? The results are, after all, only the opinions of the adjudicators in the box on the day, and as we all know another pair of adjudicators might well have come up with a completely different set of results.

Other players always...

Am I alone in thinking that when an adjudicator gets to his feet to speak at a contest, what I want to hear is some insightful comments about the performances he has just heard, swiftly followed by the results? Nothing more, nothing less.
At the regional contest in Swansea last Saturday we were...
Just a suggestion - if you haven't already done do, visiting http://brassbandresults.co.uk , entering the band(s) you have played for and then clicking on 'I played at this contest' for each relevant entry will give you a nice list of contest appearances/results which you can keep/print out. The...
Not sure about that - I've heard some physically small people project a huge sound. Bram Gay springs to mind - quoted on Wiki as 'the shortest man ever to play in the Scots Guard Band', he was principal cornet at Fodens aged 14, and became first trumpet at the Halle.

I don't think you will be alone in being cynical - unless Desford are going to come forward with more details of their concerns. I tried looking at the Desford web site to see if there are more details, but I can't find it. Google doesn't have it and brassbandresults points to...
