They're Hex values, RGB would be 255 0 255 and 255 218 185 :D /geek
They're both waves, but light is waves of electromagnetic radiation within a certain narrow band of wavelengths (other bands being radio waves, x rays, gamma rays etc etc), and sound is more of a pressure wave.
I've played Quintessence, but it was a few years ago now and it's a bit hazy! I do recall some rather tasty pedal Fs on the bass bone part...
I also played On Ratcliffe Highway at the Nationals in 2007. It was a piece that I really liked initially, but when we started getting into it it kind...
Bach 50 slides do indeed fit Edwards bell sections; I had to use one when my slide got snapped at Pontin's the other year (ouch). It also seemed add quite a lot of resistance, so may well help in the 'taming' stakes, although for me personally it affected the colour of my sound so much I was...

Really looking forward to Sunday, it's always nice to welcome a new band!
As goes tMP members, I'll be sat at the front with babby_jimbob, as well as (probably) brassintheed, clare_euph and harribarri, and you'll probably find at least tubafran and Pythagoras lurking near the gents! There may...
