There's always the american bass trombonists theory that, he who blows loudest is always right! :twisted:

Surely the fault with tuning lies elsewhere?

Erm .................... we're saying that [Bass] Trombones are basically chainsaws but with a little vibrato.

Isn't that the definition of a gentleman?

I'm not surprised. She seemed a sensible sort when we were (briefly) introduced.

See the new beast at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2524576509&category=16216

I'm rather pleased with the price tag of £2250 - I watched an identical instrument go for about £1000 more than that last year.

So, Alto, Tenor, Bass, G Bass, Contra. I think I need a Soprano now. Maybe after I've practised this one up! You can pick one up for £160 at John Packer's in Taunton.
