    The Gob Iron

    Guys, this forum used to be buzzing. Yea some of the threads were argumentative, some were downright rude, some were interesting, some were tedious, but they all created traffic. This thread having been untouched for weeks is still on page two of the rehearsal room. 5 or 6 years ago this ould...

    The Gob Iron

    I think that may well be correct. I'm not sure there is any moderation there other than Facebooks legal department. This thread, and ones like it, are perhaps the problem. You guys are just so unhappy!

    Innovations in Banding.

    The larger bore instruments have of course made the players jobs easier, but actually it has also changed the sound of a band massively. For the worse i feel.

    Brass Band websites taken too seriously?

    Is it possible that the brass band forums like this one are taken a little seriously by the movements elite? Im a member of many football forums and Sir Alex never rings the owner to complain about whats being said. Shouldn't the "Kings of Brass" and "Dynasties" of our hobby be a little less...

    Pontin 2010 Results?

    Guys I don't think any of you understand. Webster, morrison and brighouse are all of an equally excellent standard. This is a question of sportsmanship and banding ethics. Playing renowned soloists of a standard high above your band as ringers for a contest is tantamount to an olympic athlete...

    Rumour mill, are we being silenced!!

    Apparently (using no names) Its accepted practise to disguise your instrument as another. Even if your a paid endorcee! Repair shops in Wales will do the work for you and. . . You can have your cake and eat it! I've read a coupe of posts here and I want to discuss it, however...

    Why not valve trombones?

    Thats just being pedantic - give me a couple of hours in the garage tomorrow and I'll see what I can do. They laughed at Adolphe Sax at first.
