    What’s your favourite instrument and why?

    Trombone. Heard a guy make a car sound on one in 6th grade, and immediately signed up for band. Several years later and I'm going to college for the thing. I've played everything from picc trumpet to bari sax to piano, and I can play it all pretty well, but nothing is as enjoyable for me as...

Pretty much new condition, with a few minor scratches, as well as a couple of manufacturing defects (most noticeable around tuning slides and braces. Comes...

    Name an instrument, I'll play it.

    Hello, I'm new here as you can all probably tell. I'll just use this thread to drop off some general information about me. I've been a brass player for about 5 years now. I'll play anything that's needed of me, but I am most comfortable and most proficient with Trombone/Euphonium ranged...
