    Returning to Group Playing, What’s your Band doing?

    Well Jack, good to see you are still upright and able to rail against this government’s woeful management of this pandemic. Out of interest when was your positive COVID-19 test and how long did you have to wait for the answer?

    Help with the baritone horn

    Oh dear Jack, why don't you view the original question posed by Fernando, look at the other replies and then conclude that your reply to me was completely inappropriate, especially given that Fernando asked for advice and is a non-native English speaker. This will also save me the mind-numbing...

    Help with the baritone horn

    My Baritone weighs 2.5Kg, my Euph weighs 4.3Kg. A Euph sits on your lap and your back will bend and twist when putting it on the floor. A Baritone is held against your chest and does not need a lot of effort to manoeuvre as it can be laid across the knees quite happily. Uncompensated instruments...

    Absolute beginner torn between playing Baritone/Euphonium or Trombone

    Jack, try playing a trill on your baritone from upper E to F using firstly 0 to 1, then try again using using 1+2 to 1 and you will see exactly what DT means, it's also less likely to drop to the D by mistake.

    How do you like your regional test piece?

    Does it actually matter, perhaps they were short of quality basses, one never knows. Certainly in a few rehearsals we tried substituting a Euph which worked quite well. I also went to a different area and saw one band with only 5 cornets, they weren’t placed but all credit for having a real go...
